I Have a New Favorite Baseball Player...

And its not a Cub.

In fact, he's a Pirate.

I got to watch him play today and didn't even have to go to Pittsburgh (although the field is nicely built on the banks of a river)...

My son made his rookie debut tonight in front of dozen of fans at City Park in Iowa City.  He (along with 17 other players, all making their debut to organized baseball) had an impressive 2 single outing for a 1.00 batting average while overcoming distractions such as team pictures, finishing cleat drawings in the dirt, and picking up that cool looking rock while coming from 3rd to Home.

The game was coached wisely on both sides, each using an unorthodox nine man infield.  Post-game performance bonuses of Capri Sun and Teddy Grahms were seen dispersed among players.

It was not all good news, however.  Batting Tee will look to put this night behind him after posting a 54.00 ERA.

Topps 2012 Series 2 Trade Bait (AL West Edition)

Before we get into the AL West, I wanted to let you know I added a bunch of stuff to my want list today.  It's mostly base cards from Topps sets going back to 1983.  Let me know if you can help out.

As always, cards are listed in order of division ranking as of right now (3:00 PM CST).  Leave a comment if you see something you want.

A quick note before we get into the trade bait - The Chronicles of Fuji blog has started a new contest for the Summer.  Details can be found here (yes, for some reason I REALLY want the kitten cards): 

We've now arrived at the AL Central.  Apologies to those that are White Sox fans, no inserts were included in the packs I ripped.  Teams are shown in order of division ranking as of this morning.  See anything that interests you?  Leave a comment, let's trade!
