Pat Scanlon had big league cups of coffee in four seasons for the Expos and Padres.  He hit .187 with four career home runs.  He did have a long and impressive minor league career.  Of most interest to me, though, is that he lives just a few blocks away from me.  I will not ever be the type to make an unsolicited visit to someone's house for an autograph request and I am most certainly not a stalker, but I have to admit that it's kind of cool knowing exactly where a letter is going when addressing it.
