Morning Coffee and the Blog Roundup 11/17: Hump Day Edition

Hump-catting…similar to bear blasting.

Putting most of the 1991 Project into albums last night, I was struck by how damn many cards there were, and what a massive undertaking it had all been. And for what…some junk wax-era cards? So I’m strongly rethinking whether I should continue past 1991, as 1992 is going to be pretty expensive, and I’m not sure if my heart is in it past this point. As I’ve said before, learning about the development of the industry has been fascinating – it’s ironic that traded and rookie sets started to die right around 91 and yet there were more cards of traded players and rookies than ever. It’s interesting to watch the hobby transition to a more season-long thing, but I don’t know. Maybe some time off.

Danny Espinosa hit for the cycle in winter ball yesterday! Very cool. Gets me a bit more excited about his first full season in the majors. Oh, and how about the Marlins? On a damned rampage. First the Maybin/Miller deals, now the Uggla trade, and coming down the pike is a stupid contract for John Buck. I’m not sure what the hell they’re doing down there, as the Uggla trade is just…not good.

Busy day today, so I’m going to go straight to the card-o-sphere:

And that’s it for today. Catch you tomorrow…

  1. Thanks for listing #5 type posts in your roundup, sir! It’s a great feature, given the depth and breadth of card blogging these days.
