My push to get all my trade packages on the blog continues with Tim from I Love the Smell of Cardboard in the Morning. I always enjoy my trades with Tim as he is a nice place to send some Rays/Durham Bulls and Yankees cards. He always returns fire with some great Pirates and even a few WVU guys this time around.
Melancon is not a big strikeout guy, but he is always one of the harder pitchers to put the barrel on the ball. I think he may have been number one in lowest exit velocity if you like the Statcast stats. If you are going to beat him you have to sequence a bunch of hits together.
Always nice to get high end relics in trades.
Thanks for the great cards Tim. I'll hit you again soon!
