Jonathan Schoop, 2014 Topps Opening Day #186
Jonathan Schoop is starting to look more comfortable in the major leagues. Last night, he hit a tie-breaking homer in the Orioles' 4-3 win over the Rays. The rookie followed up tonight with an RBI single in the team's 3-1 win in Tampa, securing the series sweep. Manny Machado's return has allowed Schoop to settle in at second base, where he seems better acclimated than he was at third. It's nice to have that position not look like a giant question mark after all these years.
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.
