Calvin Pickering, 2000 Fleer Ultra #272
I'm off to the ballpark again tonight, as the Orioles open an 11-game homestand with the first of four games against the Rays. I hope the Birds' bats are waiting for them at Camden Yards, since they sure didn't travel to Wrigley Field with the team. Baltimore racked up a total of four runs in 27 innings against the rebuilding Cubs, two of which came on solo home runs. Things bottomed out yesterday afternoon, as Steve Pearce's four-bagger was the team's only base hit. With Manny Machado and Matt Wieters gone for the season, something needs to change. Chris Davis hitting more like Chris Davis of 2013 and less like Calvin Pickering of any year would be a nice start.
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.
