As I type this the Phillies should be wrapping up a win against the Marlins and Ryan Howard whacked his first HR of the season. Nice to see him get on the board and to take the lead!
This post does pertain to baseball and more importantly baseball cards. I had lamented earlier in the year not being able to win the silver framed cards because so many people were chasing them. Someone decided to unload the Phillies he collected and I was able to snag 4 of them for about 20 bucks!
He made a poor choice having the auction end about 5 minutes into the first episode of Game of Thrones.
Bastardo was part of a pretty solid bullpen last year. He is no longer on the Phillies, but the Phillies bullpen won't be the weakness of the team this year. Real solid 8th inning guy in Giles and Papelbon is still good despite his price tag.
Choooooch! Always a fan favorite but we'll see how many years he has left. I have a feeling they're going to let him, Howard and Utley go all at the same time to really end the Championship era.
Marlon's been a solid player most of his career whereever he has gone. He's had a fairly slow start in Cincy but I'd expect him to pick it up a bit. The guy always hustled.
Here's a nice PC addition! I really hope Howard makes the Chrome cut this year so I have another rainbow to chase. If not, not 100% sure what I'll chase instead. We'll cross that bridge when it comes. In the meantime, the first few weeks of baseball season has been fun!
Thanks for reading!
