P-Town Tom was nice enough to send me some cards to congratulate me on #500 posts and continue our long standing blind swap. It was definitely a fun stack to go through as many of the cards represented players that didn't have much in the way of Pirate releases.
Pokey was a wizard with the glove. Known more as a Red, but he was fun to watch as a Pirate.
Torres pretty much disappeared from baseball after the 97 season. After a 5 year hiatus he was signed by the Pirates and had a very nice long run of success.
I've actually met Matt Capps a few times during Pirate spring training. He might be the nicest player I've ever come across.
After being fired by the Pirates, Russell caught on with the staff of the Orioles. At least now he can learn from arguably one of the best in game managers in Buck Showalter.
Thanks a ton for all the great cards Tom. I'll be hitting you up again real soon to keep up our momentum.
Thanks for reading!
