Steve Pearce, 2014 Orioles Postcards
The Orioles are a game out of first place, and it's thanks in large part to Steve Pearce. The former Pirates prospect has been acquired by the O's three times in the past three years, which of course means that they've also parted ways with him twice. Coming into 2014, he'd batted .238/.318/.377 in parts of seven big league seasons, never exceeding 61 games in a year and peaking with 13 doubles, four homers, and 26 RBI. With a pair of two-run home runs in tonight's 7-1 win over Texas, Pearce now has 12 doubles, nine homers, and 25 RBI in 44 games thus far. His batting line is .327/.385/.592, and he's had eight multi-hit games in his last 12. Steve Pearce may be a warlock.
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.
