Clearing up some rumors about Fernando "El Toro" Valenzuela:
  • Valenzuela did not struggle with his weight. He purposefully put on pounds to look like his hero, Tommy Lasorda.
  • That is not Valenzuela's bulge your seeing there. It's just the rest of his tummy.
  • "Fernandomania" never stopped. It just signed with a Mexican league team.
  • "Los Tres Fernandos" is not a top-shelf tequila. It's a bottom-shelf baseball card.
  • Valenzuela did not eat his weight in Godfather's Pizza. The restaurant couldn't make that much pizza in one day.
  • "The Fernando Valenzuela Story" is not in production. But, yes, if it were, it would star "SNL" funnyman Horatio Sanz.
