Sorry for the dropout there.
I lost a little push with collecting for a moment. It’s not anything about changes in the hobby, or over production of relics and autos, or sticker or whatever people typically give as a reason. Nope my reason for being depressed about cards is simple.
The Twins f—ing blow!
Normally by this time in the season I am watching the guys in the minors and picking up there cards. Making sure I have the next big things. Right now I just don’t care.
It’s sad as a Twins fan to see what this team has become.
They are the worst team in the AL, currently at 15 and 32. This is a team that has two former AL MVPs, a manager of the year winner, and what was once one of the strangest farm systems around. Now they are a joke.
I think they lost their identity. The moments they signed Mauer to a monster deal and he was touted as one of the top 5, or even top 2 players in the league the Twins forgot they were the Twins. They started to think like the big boys, only didn’t go all the way.
If you’re gonna be a monster deal type of team you need to actually go out and make monster deals.
For starters how about some pitchers!
Anyway, I am back.
I have mess of stuff from Panini, some more ebay pick ups, some thoughts on new stuff dropping, maybe even some hits of yore.
So stay tuned.
