Remember Me? Today: EL GUAPO

Hey all,

Players have come and gone and we've all had our personal favorites. I'm going to start posting former Red Sox players and tell you what they're up to nowadays.

Any player suggestions? Comment below!

Name: Rich 'El Guapo' Garces

Tenure: 1996-2002

Position: RP

Claim To Sox Nation Fame: El Guapo was a household name within Red Sox Nation. His large presence was what made his nickname 'El Guapo' (meaning 'the handsome one') THAT much better. Mike Maddux (former Red Sox player) gave Garces the nickname because he felt as if he looked like the villain in Three Amigos. You could say Pedro, Nomar, and 'El Guapo' were the Big 3 of baseball in the late 90s/early 2000s.

Where Now: Handsome signed a minor league contract to pitch for the Nashua Pride in the Can-Am League in '07 after failing to make any major league teams. In 2008 the Nashua Pride were now the American Defenders of New Hampshire. Managed by former Red Sox first baseman Brian Daubach (Dough Boy!), El Guapo wore #51.

In 2009 El Guapo disappeared.

I literally went into the depths of researching him and could only find "USAToday.com reports the New Hampshire American Defenders of the Can-Am League exercised their 2009 option on RP Rich Garces."

I'm pretty positive he just left baseball for good. Hopefully to open up his own restaurant.
