Mike Devereaux, 1989 Topps Traded #23T
It's Mike Devereaux Time! The magic number is 12, thanks to Nelson Cruz outslugging the Rays, 7-5, in 11 innings. Kansas City did the Orioles another solid, shutting out the Yankees on Derek Jeter Day and scraping across a symbolic two unearned runs. So the cushion is still nine and a half as the Birds fly north to Boston. The best-case scenario would involve the O's clinching the division next Saturday at home vs. the Yankees. Of course, I'm not expecting them to sweep the Red Sox, then come back home and take the first three against New York after a Tampa Bay sweep of the Yanks. But it would be sweet.
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.
