Defending the Gint-A-Cuffs Title

It's time to defend my Gint-A-Cuffs title! I finally got to open my box and I'm ready to post it. I can tell you from the start that doing all these pics with my phone is going to drive me crazy, but that's my problem, not yours.

We'll start with the boxtopper.

N43 Ubaldo Jiminez +5

This guy has really dropped off since the first half of last season.

Let's get on to pack 1.

221 Mark Rogers

200 Josh Hamilton +4 (My favorite player)
Pulling your own favorite player in the first pack isn't a bad way to start.

68 Max Scherzer
123 Rajai Davis
21 Logan Morrison

BHS 20 Alex Rodriguez Baseball Highlight Sketch +2 (Sketch +3-1 for being a Yankee)

AP7 Animals In Peril DHOLE +3

HH65 Adrian Gonzalez +3 (+1 Hometown Hero, +2 Favorite Player)

Total for boxtopper and pack 1 is: 17 points.

That's not a terrible start.


  1. You know, that animal wouldn't be in such peril if it wasn't such a d-hole.

  2. I saw Jimenez last year in Houston and he was close to unhittable. What's up with him now?

    Glad your wife is doing well, btw.

  3. Ubaldo is not pitching badly (for the most part) this year, but he is not getting any offensive support. The 6-9 record is somewhat misleading. 2 or 3 of those losses were 1-0 or 2-0. I might not be exactly right, but it's close to that.

    BTW, I would love to trade for the box topper. Mine is the Lyndon Johnson National Park one. I'm sure I could come up with different stuff later.
