Hey everyone! I am doing a special "mid-day" edition of TFOS (Or whatever we're calling this! Haha!). I will most likely be late with the Free Agent Draft this evening due to my son playing in his final regular season baseball game of the year - of his Senior Year, no less!
I am going to brag a bit here: My son has grown into a wonderful baseball player. As a kid, he was afraid of the ball, got very emotional when he struck out, and actually took time away from the sport for a couple years. When he rejoined, he had a renewed focus that has translated into him leading the team in unassisted double plays, some great clutch hitting, and serving as something of a spiritual leader for the team. I am one proud Daddy!
So, when the draft is delayed this evening, you'll know why. :-)
In the meantime, let's rip open a pack:
2009 Upper Deck SP Authentic. 5 cards per pack.
Mariano Rivera - Yankees - BrownPG (Wahoo!!)
David Wright - Mets - Paul.Hadsall (Wahoo!!)
World History Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani
Matt Holliday - Cardinals - E_Rose (Wahoo!!)
Ryan Zimmerman - Nationals - Tim_Gretchen (Wahoo!!)
Awesome! Every player has a manager, and the only card not going to a manager yet is the World History insert. Congratulations, managers! That is how I wish all the breaks went. Then again, we wouldn't have Free Agent drafts if that happened!
