2006 Topps Allen & Ginter #249


Stewart once hit a single with two outs in the 9th inning against Curt Schilling to break up a no-no.  If I were him, I'd drive by Schilling every now and then and just smile at him.

Shoebox Card #75


Jose Canseco did a lot of things, but dammit he never did Coke.

Shoebox Card #74


In each of the older Topps sets, there always seems to be at least one card for which it seems the set was specifically made. This card is a masterpiece.

Shoebox Card #73


I chose this card in tribute to Dennis, one of my all-time favorite bloggers and trading partners.

2006 Topps Allen & Ginter #248



I don't have much to say about this card.  You'd think I would have something to say since I had almost 5 years to find something to say about it.  But I don't.

Shoebox Card #71


2 years, 6 months, 12 days, 14+ hours...

That's how much time has passed since I posted Shoebox Card #70


Bob Milacki struck out Jose Canseco to end the 6th inning.  He never went back to the mound that day, ending with only 80 pitches.  I'm usually a fan of good sportsmanship and keeping a level head.  If a manager removes a pitcher with a no-hitter through six, that pitcher should raise hell.  Of course, O's Manager Johnny Oates went to Virginia Tech, so it was probably the correct decision.
