    What I should have realized earlier when I said HOU manager picked Cole over Verlander is that might be a hint he is picking Cole for G1 of the playoffs. Not sure but that makes sense if he thinks Cole is better to have him go G1/4/7 and Verlander go G2/5. Somehow I assumed all year it would be the other way around.

    Best of luck pulling it then! might be your only chance...

    For the record I would pitch Verlander G1 of each series due to previous experience.

    I'd definitely go with JV over Cole for the game 1 start. He has a ton of postseason inning and stats that are as good, if not better than his regular season numbers. Nothing against Cole but he has a much shorter and less impressive postseason track record. Ride your hoss in the playoffs I say.

    AJ Hinch must be happy how stacked this team is, their 3rd best pitch Zack Greinke just pitched a nono into the 9th.


    Hinch is the first of the Donruss Crusaders to win a WS as manager, and he might also be the second!

    Well man, I wish you lots of luck chasing that one.

    For me, these new releases are just too much and, with a few exceptions, I just don't do them anymore. For Wakefield it might be almost manageable, but for those of use weirdos that collect HOF second basemen whose best rookie is 1988 score traded glossy, well that's a different matter. Maybe you know what I mean?

    Speaking of managers, you know who was a snub to the RC Crusades?



    Yes, that's right... a young Aaron Boone.

    You guys will know the day I've ascended to a position of power in the Topps company... there will be some bizarrely unattainable release, such as a Ruth/Gehrig/Alomar/Wakefield quad-auto.

    Now you're just being mean. Stop being that way. You'll pay for it in the next life.

    It would be especially funny for the non-FCBer who would pull the card. They would at side 1 and see the Ruth/Gehrig autos, suspecting Cobb/Williams on the other side... only to turn it over and see Wakefield/Alomar and be utterly confused.

    Oh jeez. I didn't see the middle name.

    [MENTION=13789]bstanwood[/MENTION] You need to see this. Dick Cummings Wakefield. If you don't start a new PC right this second, shame on you

    If I did a PC of a guy with that name there's a risk the cards would all stick together.
