How about those Pirates! What once looked like an insurmountable lead in the division has been whittled down to 2 1/2 games. Let's hope they can continue to put pressure on the Cardinals.
Now that we are at the All Star break it should allow me some time to get some cardboard in order. My mailbox has been bombed recently by great trade packages. One of these packages was courtesy of my buddy Tom who runs The Angels, In Order.
I've always liked Hague's odd signature.
This did not end well for the Pirates as Moskos would only pitch 25 innings for the big league team before getting dfa'd. His numbers weren't all that bad, but the stuff just didn't project well in the bullpen. A flyball pitcher that doesn't strike anybody out is a lethal combination.
It is always fun to receive cards like this as it does jog a lot of memories. In some ways Daniel Moskos was indirectly involved for getting the Pirates turned around. Not long after a new regime took over and new practices were put in place to make sure the Pirates take the best players available.
Diamond Kings has been my favorite Panini release this year. I was a huge fan of the early 2000's Diamond King sets so this was a very exciting release for me.
Thanks so much for the cards Tom. I'll be sure to hit you back soon with some Angels.
Thanks for reading.
