Gint-A-Cuffs III: Packs 8-10

I'm working the weekend and we're in hurry up and wait mode so I'm jumping in with 3 more packs for Gint-A-Cuffs III. Of course, there's no hurrying up with these posts because of the way I'm doing the pics, but I digress. Let us digress no more.

Total through 7 packs: 90 points
Pack 8

207 Brett Sinkbeil (0 points)
This guy's not the only one pulling a lot of Marlins.

246 Ian Kinsler (+1 favorite team)
I wonder if Ian is looking for that Geico Gecko? If you don't know what I'm talking about, you aren't paying attention to the card background.

184 Pedro Alvarez (0 points)
265 Buster Posey (0 points)
I don't like Buster. I don't like the Giants. Still, I wouldn't wish a broken leg on anybody. Well, maybe Brian Wilson.
156 Marlon Byrd (0 points)
Former Ranger

212 Aramis Ramirez (+3 points)
I had the images for this post loaded and was writing the post when I noticed this is a code card and had to add it. I wonder if any other 'Cuffers have missed some of these code cards. Did you???

167 Adam LaRoche (+2 ad back mini)

HH53 Justin Verlander Hometown Heroes (+1)

Pack 8 total: 7 points
Through 8 packs: 97 points

Pack 9

27 Dillon Gee (0 points)
227 Lucas Duda (0 points)
Two Mets in a row. I'm pulling lots of Mets. There's another one in this pack.
67 Delmon Young (0 points)
110 Josh Beckett (0 points)
Someone wake me when this pack is over.
91 Joel Pineiro (0 points)
Seriously, if the mini in this pack is a Yankee, I'm gonna puke.

347 Josh Thole (+2 SP)
I told you there was another Met coming up.

316 Manny Ramirez (+3 SP mini)
A mini Manny. Funny.

HH100 Travis Snider Hometown Heroes (+1)

Pack 9 total: 6 points
Through 9 packs: 103 points

I won't complain about hitting 100 with 15 packs to go. That 30 point Hamilton bat relic really helped.

Pack 10

286 Cory Luebke (0 points)
278 Travis Snider (0 points)
58 Alcides Escobar (0 points)
This pack is looking like the last points.
269 Derrek Lee

AOM 6 Platyhelminthes (+1)
Dumb scientific names.

349 Yuniesky Betancourt (+2 SP)
Dumb human names.

FFF3 Fabulous Face Flocculence Conscientious Objector (+4)
Dumb insert names. Ok, not really, I like this one.

HH90 Ryan Howard Hometown Heroes (+1)

Pack 10 total: 8 points
Through 10 packs: 111 points

There you have it. By the time you read this, I'll be working on my next Gint-A-Post. Don't hate me.

Please let me know if you see any scoring errors. I think it's easier to spot other people's errors than it is your own.


  1. I missed the code cards the first time through as well. This was my first venture into A&G's and I had no clue as to what it all meant.

    I messed up my count several times and had to recount (and re-email Mark) over and over. I think I'm banned from Gint-A-Cuffs IV for being a pain in the rear. LOL

  2. Sigh. I miss Gint-a-Cuffs. Maybe next year.
