Mark Reynolds, 2012 Topps Opening Day #42
Baltimore fans have waited for 15 years to see a home playoff game, and now it seems as though they might have to wait longer. Rain has already delayed the start of Game One of the American League Division Series for nearly two hours, with no end in sight. But whenever the O's start their postseason showdown with the Yankees, they'll need some contributions from Mark Reynolds. "The Sheriff" has been a bona fide Yankee killer in 2012, batting .294/.410/.804 with 5 doubles and 7 home runs among his 15 hits in 15 games against New York. He also drove in 14 runs. It's really happening, folks. Orioles and Yankees for a spot in the ALCS. I may not exhale all week.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
