JediJeff, are looking out for me and send me dupes!
More prospects? Yes, please! Mendy! I hope Maddon finds a way to put his versatility to good use!
Baseball Reference has him listed as 6'2" and 155 pounds. There have been some really thin pitchers in the major leagues who have had some success, but they often have to beat the rap of being frail. Who says that you can't handle a starter's workload and have the physique of a telephone pole? It never bothered Randy Johnson (6'10, 225), Jack McDowell (6'5" 180) or Chris Sale now (6'6' 180).
A new Ryno for my player collection. This is #753 in my collection, which is still growing strong.
Another Ryno, and some insert cards featuring a plethora of players from 2001 Topps.
Mark Prior used to be the goods, but now Jon Lester, fatigued shoulder and all, is the new top of the rotation starter in town. I'm hoping we can get three or four more excellent years out of Lester before he starts to show his age.
Lastly, a couple of great right fielders for the Cubs. The Hawk and Slammin' Sammy... it's hard to say who was more popular in their prime amongst Cub fans.
Thanks for the surprise PWE, Jeff! I have an ugly 2015 Donruss Jose Abreu card with you name on it. Man, the more I think about that design the less I like it. Bleck.
