I Said What? Fernando Vina!?!?!

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in

Surely Detroit fans know the Fernando Vina who played a Big Whopper's worth of 29 games with the Tigers in two seasons after signing a pretty lucrative contract. Not that we really cared much about missing that .226 BA in 2004 anyway.

For those of you who aren't Tigers fans and were fortunate enough to not have him on your team, you probably know Vina for his on air "skills" as an ESPN analyst. (of course this discounts MIL and STL fans who got some decent years from Vina--hell, I know it wasn't a Tigers fan who made this Collective Souls tribute video for him)

On ESPN, Vina is probably known most for his perfectly groomed goatee and his incoherent speedy analysis. I know Vina has caused fits with a lot of viewers who often crack jokes at his expense. So it's no wonder Matt Vasgersian of MLB TV Network was shocked when he made the slip up and said Fernando Vina instead of Fernando Valenzuela when introducing a segment on the show. Peep it:
