This title has two meanings. Lets get the unfortunate one out of the way... I ran into some poison ivy/sumac/oak or something about ten days ago. Not fun. As long as my attention is diverted I don't really notice it, but soon as I have a minute's worth of downtime it starts to itch. Argh! I started taking a steroid this past weekend and I think I'm getting better.
The second meaning? Well, I'm beginning to get the blogging itch again. In the previous five years I've only had three months where I recorded single digit post counts. This year I've already had three. Maybe that's the new norm, but I'm hoping it's not. We'll have to see.
In the meantime, prepare yourselves to be bombarded with Vogelbach related posts! He's not apart of the Cubs' organization any longer, but my player collection of him has now surpassed 200 cards! I recently found out he has a couple more autos and parallels in the Heritage High Series and he has an auto in Topps Triple Threads. I about fell out of my chair when I saw Vogelbach was in Triple Threads. Crazy.
In other news, The Vogelmonster was chosen as the Mariners' Offensive Player of the Year for 2017 and he is currently being used as a pinch hitter on the big league roster.
I recently checked out Vogelbach's MLB.com player page. Take a look at the featured picture at the top of his page:
Lastly, anyone have $250 laying around? I don't know what I would do with it if owned this jersey, but it is pretty neat, and the money goes to a good cause.
I thought "Marineros" in the auction title was a typo, but then I looked closer at the jersey number.
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
