    Hats off to Wladimir Balentien

    Tied the Japanese season HR record of 55 with around 20 games left! Set by Sadaharu Oh, tied by Tuffy Rhodes and Alex Cabrera, they are actually booing pitchers who walk him this time! Good luck Wladimir.

    Spring Cleaning finds

    Rearranging some boxes and found a small box of numbered cards from back when those were the flavor of the day. It was kind of fun to dig through those and see some familiar names and others who have long since been forgotten. (Richard Hidalgo, Joe Randa, etc) I think my biggest hit was a 1999...

    1986 Topps PSA 10 Ryne Sandberg

    Anyone else see the snippet on Sports Collectors Daily about the PSA 10 1986 Topps Ryne Sandberg passing the $1000 mark? Talk about having to fight the urge to buy some unopened rack/cello cases, or at least a box or two!

    Twinsfest 2013 experience

    A very mixed show experience for me. I'm guessing part of it is me getting older. It is by far the biggest show of the year, so I always make a point to go. The autograph lineup, pricing, and setup weren't quite my cup of tea. Last year or the year before, in order to combat the insane lines...

    A trip down Memory Lane

    I picked up some older boxes from Loyalty32 (thanks again Craig). Nothing huge, just a fun lot of a 1986 Fleer cello box, 1986 Topps Rack box and a 1987 Topps rack box. (There was also a 1991 Stadium Club Series 1 box, but I left that wrapped) I decided to look for star packs instead of...

    Mike Redmond new Marlins manager

    3 year deal It should be interesting, he seemed like a good baseball guy and just a good guy when he was with the Twins. I hope he does well for them.

    Playoff and active roster questions

    I picked up a Rule 5 player in the draft. Not my best move, he wasn't even close to ML ready, so I pretty much relegated him to mop up man #2, where he killed me the least. Can I remove him from the playoff roster and replace him with another eligible pitcher, and can the active roster (not the...
