So Sad Right Now.

I know this is supposed to be a sportscard blog,but right now I'm too sad to write about bits of cardboard. The reason being that our puppy Morris died last night, he was a great little guy who always made us happy even when pooping and peeing on the carpet. The poor little guy had some type of poisoning and sadly died. His older sister Mimosa is in the vets as I write this and we are hoping she will be ok. Morris will be missed by all of us. R.I.P little dude.

150 Up.

The card above is my 150th James Shields card, the collection now stands at 152. The Bowman Chrome Orange Refractor was card 150. Many thanks to the seller on for listing it. This whole collection started 3 years ago with a 25c winning bid on a Bowman Draft Chrome card. At the time Scott Kazmir was my primary collection,but as time has gone on the Kazmir collection has ground to a halt and the Shields has taken off.

James Shields is really the poster boy for the Rays. A pitcher who has good stuff not great, but he just churns out the innings. He leads the Rays in wins,strikeouts and innings pitched. All these will no doubt be overtaken by David Price at some point in the future. So far this season Shields has looked great, two complete games and then 8+ innings in his next start. A far cry from last season, I hope he keeps doing what his doing and the Rays keep on winning. If not, nevermind I will still be hunting down his cards.
