merging my pictures and cards

Archive for July, 2010

Ichiro Suzuki

Ichiro is one of the more feared leadoff hitters in the league. Once he gets on base (which he does often) his speed can change a game. He also is a great outfielder that runners do not test. (more…)

Andrew Fie

Andrew had a great game the first time I saw him in a Silverhawks uniform. Apparently looking at his stats that was the last time that he had a good game. (more…)

Steve Sabatino

Here is another of the Irish players that I was able to see this season. (more…)

Gil Meche

Gil has been the ace of the Royals staff since he came to the team from Seattle. Injuries have slowed him down the last couple of seasons allowing for the emergence of Zach Greinke as the ace of the squad. (more…)

Errol Hollinger

Errol is one of the many catchers that I have seen in South Bend over the last few years. He has a unique first name, and from what I have seen in person a decent bat. Monday night he knocked in two with a key base hit in the first game of the doubleheader. (more…)

Mark DeRosa

Mark is one of the Cubs that I really grew to like during his tenure with them. I could not believe it when they let him slip away. Then he went to the rival Cardinals and I knew that they would not be happy about that. I decided that now was the time to try a ‘now with’ card that I grew up with. Topps would not even try to airbrush a card sometimes, but would just type some extra letters to let you know that the player has switched teams. This is my try at that card. (more…)

Felix Hernandez

Well let’s try this once again. Everytime I try and a post with the start of a game something happens to delay that game. Tonight I will be at the Cell to see the Mariners face the White Sox. I won’t see Felix Hernandez, but maybe that is a good thing because he is one of the top pitchers in the league. (more…)

Chris Davis

Chris is no longer catching for the Silverhawks, but I like this pictures so much that I had to include the card in the set. I just love the old school catcher look that he is sporting in the picture. The backwards ball cap and his old time mask really made him look like a throwback to a simpler time. (more…)

Bradin Hagens

Bradin has been a valuable pitcher eating up some innings for the Silverhawks this season. He took the loss the other night in the second game of a doubleheader, but you can’t win them all can you? (more…)

Lucas Harrell

Lucas is another of the prospects that I was excited to see in Indy this past weekend. I don’t really follow the careers of minor leaguers like some fans do. I usually worry about them when they get to the Sox. The last couple of years though I have taken a little more interest in the guys who I may see soon. Harrell is one of those guys that appears to have the stuff to help the Sox. (more…)
