Good evening! If you are a manager looking for your free agents, well, they are still free. I plan to get that list done and out to you on Friday - *THIS* Friday (the 5th).
Meanwhile, the Managers/Players list is updated. That means I will also post current standings in the OOTP game tomorrow! Wahoo!! I have not run the game since the last update, so we'll see what expanding the rosters to a whopping 70 active players does!
Tonight, I have two "packs." One is a 2010 Topps Series 2. The other is a 2010 Commemorative Patch to open. Let's start with the pack of players:
Chris R Young - Padres - BoRosnys (Wahoo!!) - [Too bad he doesn't have one leg in the air: he'd be doing the whole "Karate Kid" move.]
Dustin Pedroia - Red Sox - RJBreezes (Wahoo!!) - [It's hard to tell if this is the end of a slide or if he is just resting on the field.]
Pittsburgh Pirates Team Card - Pirates - Free Agent - [In 2010, the Bucs were still awful. But, a couple years later, and they finally turned a winning season.]
Dan Haren - Diamondbacks - Wilsons (Wahoo!!) - [Did Topps have to get special permission to abbreviate the team name? I have no idea.]
Michael Saunders - Mariners - Free Agent - [The photo features him swinging just as the ball is about to connect with the bat. Very nice!]
Jim "Catfish" Hunter Peak Performance - A's - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!) - [According to the card, on May 8, 1968, he threw a perfect game and also had 3 hits with 3 RBIs. The "Perfect Day."]
Torii Hunter Topps Attax - Angels - Jennings (Wahoo!!) - [I love that Hunter is from Pine Bluff. Well, I just love the fact he is one of several Arky boys in the Bigs.]
Ryan Ludwick - Cardinals - Wilsons (Wahoo!! x2) - [Ex-Triber and he serves as the second hit for the Wilsons in the pack!]
Here is the patch card:
Harmon Killebrew Manufactured 1969 All-Star Game Patch - Twins - EG9460s (Wahoo!!) - [Interesting patch, as it looks absolutely awful. I mean, it is a manu-patch, so why "blur" the words on the patch!? Oh well, it is cool.]
Congratulations to ALL the managers pulling players from the pack! Stay tuned for tomorrow's OOTP updates!
