MadFriars Q & A: Paul McAnulty

So much for keeping one in the can. MadFriars talked to Padres outfield prospect Paul McAnulty on the 16th of May, the day after he had hit just his second home run of 2005 and questions had begun circulating about his power potential. Since then McAnulty has turned it on. He has hit in eight of the nine games since the interview, collected three more home runs and added two doubles.

Paul McAnulty:   I've never really been a home run guy, I've always been a gap guy, a line drive hitter with home run potential, getting on base for guys behind me.  I've seen a lot of lefties, it seems like I'm getting three at bats a night against lefties, so I'm not too worried about it...
