Dayf at Cardboard Junkie was swell enough to send some of the cards I needed from my 2007 Topps list. Here’s some things I learned from them:
41 Rich Hill – Rich is the only rookie to throw a shutout while being managed by Dusty Baker. Cueto and Volquez have each thrown at least 6 shutout innings this year, but have been pulled from the game before they could match Rich Hill’s feat.
64 Bobby Kielty – Bobby’s wife gre up best friends with Cliff Lee’s wife. I so hope that’s a Jeopardy! question some day.
396 Chris Capuano – Chris was the valedictorian of his class at Cathedral High School in Springfield.
505 Jose Bautista – Jose played with 4 different teams in 2004 alone.
