Carlos Gonzalez likes "The Simpsons" (in Spanish) and "Family Guy" (in English), making his sense of humor known. So it should come as no surprise that he's wearing a shirt poking fun at himself. It features a "Swag Meter" fuel tank on the front, and CarGo's needle sits at full. "A friend gave it to me," he said with a smirk.

CarGo finally had reason to smile and strut a bit Friday, hitting his first home run in a calendar month. Gonzalez, in his third game since rejoining the Rockies after his grandfather's funeral, belted a 2-2 fastball about 425 feet over Wrigley Field's center-field fence in the third inning.
