It has been a while since my last post and a lot has happened in the baseball world. We will leave the real world out of this because that shit is crae-crae. Anyway, the Chicago Cubs finally won a World Series in an exciting 7 game series against the Cleveland Indians. Bill Murray and Eddie Vedder will die happier men. Free agents have signed and players have been traded. Bryce Harper wants to be the $400 million man, allegedly. Nobody seems to want Jose Bautista. Relievers are getting paid. There is no lock out, but there was never going to be one.
On the Mets front, Cespedes and Walker are both returning. Bartolo Colon is now a Brave. Jay Bruce is still on the trade block. There will be an unfortunate, but appropriate, suspension of Familia. Syndergaard is lighting fire on social media.
Spring Training is right around the corner. Players will start to report and continue to get ready for the new season. Some will participate in the World Baseball Classic. Before we know it, Opening Day will be here.
On the card front, I have been keeping busy making trades while my beloved Zistle is around. There is really no information available that suggests that Zistle will stick around. It sucks to be in the dark. I also had another go around with COMC's Black Friday special.
Speaking of trades, here is another Zistle trade. Dave reached out with another trade offer shortly after our previous trade. He was looking for a bunch of Gypsy Queen needs and offered up something solid in return.
You can not feel bad when you receive some vintage needs. My favorite is probably the Cleon Jones in the middle of the top row. I like action shots on vintage cards for some reason, but probably because they are not as commonly seen as modern cards. It is always nice to receive some Gary Carter Expos cards, too.
