Moises Sierra is just a spectacular baseball name

1987 Topps Ruben Sierra, 1991 Donruss Moises Alou
Back in the heyday of baseball cards, two of my favorite non-Red Sox players were Ruben Sierra and Moises Alou.  In the late '80s/early '90s Sierra was one of the most feared hitters in the AL as a 30 homer, 100 RBI, .300 batting average guy for the Texas Rangers.

Alou started as a wiry young speedster for the Montreal Expos, but would eventually undergo a Barry Bonds-esque transformation and become a big time slugger for the Houston Astros around the turn of the century.

And now I've come to find out the Blue Jays have a young rookie outfielder on their roster who goes by the name of Moises Sierra.  I don't know anything about him, and I don't care; this guy is destined for baseball greatness.
