Nothing fancy here.
With all the diamond parallels that came through my house in 2011, I was surprised that I didn't have this card. Fingers crossed that he can stay healthy this year and join Edwin Encarnacion in the 40 homer club.
I'd forgotten about Jesse Litsch until I saw this card. It turns out that he had some serious health issues and didn't pitch at all in 2012. Jesse chose free agency over a AAA assignment to the Buffalo Bisons, and hasn't signed with a club since. It looks as if he's trying to make a comeback though. His twitter feed @JesseLitsch shows some pics of his new "arm slot".
Another card that I was surprised to find I didn't have as part of the Jays collection. I was always under the impression that Gruber was a Blue Jays draft pick, but I found out that he was actually a rule 5 draftee from the Cleveland Indians. Kelly spent the entire 1984 season with the Jays, basically taking up a roster spot by playing only 15 games with the Jays. It would be another two years before Gruber earned some regular playing time in Toronto.
There's a chance that I may be able to find enough time this weekend to get all the remaining Jays cards sorted through. That would mean I would only have to update the want list with the 2013/2014 needs.
So you're saying there's a chance.....
