    Strange how this guy's getting better in his late 30s.
    If this were the '90s or '00s, I'd say something's fishy. Still's a little odd compared to other pitchers in history.

    Yeah, he says he's "mentally worn down."
    He just got married too. I wonder how much influence his wife had in making this decision.

    Is that guy Tramers?

    I wish the report would have explained how he actually acquires these cards when the card shop turns down the sellers.

    Does the shop buy them and then he pays the dealer?...

  13. 25 years ago today (8/12/94) was a dark day in MLB history. The start of the 1994 strike.

    The 1994 MLB strike began 25 years ago today, leading to the cancellation of the season and World Series.
    The baseball card hobby was also hit hard by the strike.

    What are your memories of the...

    I don’t follow prospects anymore, so an article today about Yordan Alvarez surprised me.
