2000 Fleer Focus #2


2000 Fleer Focus #154
Expos Star
Position: OF
Bio/Summary: A player that really needs no introduction, Vladimir may have fallen off the cliff this year, but he’s been a force in the majors for quite some time. In 2000, he was coming off a career-high 42 homers, .315 average, and .978 OPS (uh, pretty damned impressive numbers) and managed to best even that, knocking 44 home runs with a .345 average and 1.074 OPS. 1.074!! Insanity. I miss the guy.
Rating: 7/10 – So that looks like Wrigley in the background, and some Cub. I’m curious about why Vlad looks so laid back, as does the fielder, when he’s running from one base to another.
2000 Fleer Focus  #30
Expos Lynchpin
Position: 2B/OF
Bio/Summary: Vlad’s older brother and unfortunately the lesser light of the family. I mean, he was fairly serviceable for a second baseman, though he was not hitting so well in 2000. A .638 OPS with .310 OBP? Ugh. Terrible.
Rating: 6/10 – I can’t quite place who that team is in the background. The Astros, maybe? It’s not a bad card, though.
Rondell White
2000 Fleer Focus #23
Expos Lynchpin
Position: OF
Bio/Summary: 2000 was Rondell’s last year with the Expos, but he did a pretty good job, hitting .311 with 13 homers and an .867 OPS. Yet another year of his marred by injury. This was also where his speed fell off the table, going from a career high of 25 stolen bases (1995), all the way down to 5. He would never sniff double digits again.
Rating: 6/10 -Is this set in Puerto Rico or Spring Training? I can tell those are the Cards back there, but that’s about it.
