I really hope Vlad gets in-what a story and what a player. Here's a brief bit on him from ESPN.
I have a former college coach who played with him briefly in the Expos organization. He told me a few stories, but this one stands out the most. Even as an 18 year old, Vlad had an absolute cannon. They were practicing one particular morning, and the outfielders were throwing home. There was moisture on the ground, and his throw skipped a bit on the catcher. Long story short, it hit him in a bad spot and cracked his cup.
