David Hernandez, 2010 Topps Gold #45
Adam Jones has left Orioles camp to join Team USA for the World Baseball Classic. None of his current teammates will be there - Matt Wieters and Jim Johnson declined their own invitations - but he'll still be rubbing elbows with some familiar faces. Yesterday former O's pitcher David Hernandez (now with the Diamondbacks) was named to the American team as an injury replacement for Indians closer Chris Perez. The right-hander is coming off an excellent season in which he put up a 2.50 ERA in 72 games out of the Arizona bullpen and struck out 98 men in 68.1 innings. So if you were holding off on supporting Team USA, maybe this will give you that last push you needed.
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.
