The last post of my 2nd year on this blog is another serial insanity post. I figured why not go out with a bang, since this is kind of my signature now (I guess)
880 cards total equals 58.67 % completion. You'll see 60% by the end of July.
Card # 876: Chris Young
Serial Number: 975
Team: Oakland A's, card # 40 out of 50
No, this is the other Chris Young. The one that spent 7 years in AZ. Part of a 3 team trade last October, his offense has tailed off dramatically since his shift to the AL. Hitting .190 isn't going to cut it, no matter where you are...
Card # 877: Jay Bruce
Serial Number: 932
Team: Cincinnati Reds, card # 28 out of 50
He's only 26??? Seems to have been around forever....looks to be headed for a career season in most offensive categories. Currently leads the NL in doubles with 28.
Card # 878: Johan Santana
Serial Number: 842
Team: New York Mets, card # 30 out of 50
Loved the fact that it was Johan who pitched the first no-hitter in Mets history last season. A numbers freak like me enjoys seeing the amazing 3 year run he had between 2004-2006, where his WHIP was less than 1.000 each season, his lowest strikeout total was 238, and his highest ERA was 2.87
Get healthy soon Johan...
Card # 879: Ruben Tejada
Serial Number: 1254
Team: New York Mets, card # 31 out of 50
I like him already. Ruben shares my birthday (October 27), but he's a few years (22) younger than I am. The Mets 360 website graded Tejada's first half of 2013 with a big fat F. I remember F's.....
Card # 880: Fausto Carmona
Serial Number: 1306
Team: Cleveland Indians, card # 29 out of 50
A big thanks to Max at the Starting Nine blog for sending me another great addition to the SNI project.
It's too bad he doesn't exist anymore.
Thanks for reading, Robert
