1977 Topps – D.J. Carrasco
During his short time with the White Sox D.J. Carrasco was one of my favorites. I sat down by the Sox bullpen a lot, and he really seemed to enjoy talking to the fans and playing the game. He is one of the bright spots in baseball. He now plays for the Mets, and I saw an interview he did with SNY the other day. He still seems to be really enjoying the game, and I wish nothing but the best for him.
The picture on this card was taken while I was sitting by the bullpen in 2009. Before the game DJ was even kind enough to pose for a couple of pictures for me so he became an instant favorite.
