The correct answer is Stephen Drew.

Stephen Drew hit an inside-the-park home run in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 6-3 win over the Padres on Monday. For the second year in a row, someone hit an inside-the-park homer on opening day -- former Diamondbacks player Emilio Bonifacio did it for the Florida Marlins last year, which was the first one after 41 years.

Stephen Drew might live up to his hype though... I don't think Bonifacio had any hype to speak of. But I can't argue with the inside-the-park homer on opening day fact.

Drew fans hope the similarities end at the opening day inside the park HR. once Bonifacio had his hot streak last season he faded back into nothing, something im sure Drew fans hope doesnt happen.

Drew was considered the top prospect in the minors at midseason 2006 when he was promoted to the majors. Bonifacio did not nearly have the pedigree of Drew.

Methinks you guys all missed the point/joke. Bonifacio, as I recall, hit an inside the park HR on opening day last year (on top of stealing 3 bases). Either that or I missed the joke.

I've gotta go with Garrett Jones. While I think he has the possibility of having a good year, but he needs to be able to hit lefties before I'll be able to think of him as an everyday player. So, that being said...I have a feeling he's gonna Bonafacio out a little

btw, the Drew reference / in the park hr similarities are not only uncanny, but pretty funny as well
