Sweet Lou and a Survivor

Mark J. Merila was drafted by the Twins in 1993 and played Rookie and A league ball for them in 1994 and 1995.  He has many the Padres bullpen catcher for many years and wears number 71.  Scott Linebrink wears 17 in his honor, because he has survived a brain tumor.  I got this signed through the mail.  Louis William Merloni always evokes memories of the Blues Brothers for me.  He was known as Sweet Lou Merloni while the Blues Brothers sax player was Blue Lou Marini.  Sweet Lou only played 65 games for the Padres in 2003 after coming over from the BoSox, he then played for the Indians and Angels.  I also got this card signed through the mail.
