Nelson Cruz, 2014 Topps #453

With his fifth-inning solo shot off of Brandon McCarthy tonight, Nelson Cruz is the sixth player in Orioles history to hit 40 home runs in one season. He follows in the footsteps of Chris Davis, Rafael Palmeiro, Brady Anderson, Frank Robinson, and Jim Gentile. 107 RBI, 138 OPS+ (entering tonight's game). That, my friends, is eight million dollars well spent.

Interesting that the 3 most recent are guys who've been busted for banned substances during their careers.
