Shawn Estes. Shawn Estes!

It’s always a good thing when you read a Padres-Cubs recap and get all exclamation point-y! Because longtime Giant Shawn Estes is back in the league — and got his 100th career win. Yay!

Estes pitched 5 1/3 innings and the Padres’ bullpen secured the win with 3 2/3 innings of hitless relief.

Estes (1-0), who pitched 1 2/3 innings in relief on Thursday, only made one start in 2006 for the Padres and missed the 2007 season recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Comeback stories are always fun and Estes was one of those good guys in baseball, with little ego, a sense of humor and some charisma.

So welcome back, Shawn Estes. If that is your real name, Aaron!
