    Last night was special

    For those who dont know, Im big time on the Julio Rodriguez hype train. Im convinced hes a future MLB stud. Hes been here only a few weeks but hes been all the buzz. Last night was a jersey auction and my wife told me to go for it and luckily it was below my budget!

    Rodriguez is definitely the real deal man. That's awesome you were able to acquire his jersey!!

    Thanks everyone! Im sold on this kid being a superstar but hes also the first player my daughter instantly recognizes on the field, at bat and shes always stops to watch his at bats. Even my wife has said she can tell hes better than any player shes ever seen. These past few weeks watching him has been very exciting

    Indeed! Saw him steal home from second base here in Lakewood. The kid got an excellent jump, the ball trickled past the catcher and he never hesitated. You can tell the kid has fun playing the game and he's a born leader out there.

    Wow, congrats! This is easily the FCB acquisition of the year I'd say.

    So what was the winning bid?

    $240. The entire teamed signed jersey only went for 130. I had a bit of bidding war with 2 others but my wife gave me the OK to win it regardless of price

    This is so true and wont show up in stats but hes always smiling, having fun and definitely a leader. His speed is definitely underrated

    Thanks man. My daughter and I went to the game last night. Julio recognized us and came over to high five my daughter and her face lit up. I think she has her first crush to be honest
