Thanks for heads up. If you all don’t mind, I don’t know this well enough so I’m going to get the kids in bed first and then look at checklist. Should be ready around 830
Always the goddamned breeders slowing things down.

This is hard! I am in a pickle!

Well I’ll make it easy on myself as I’m not flipping the cards anyway.

Bongorific selects Your Boston Red Sox with the fifth pick.

The possibility of some of those Ichiro and Jr. cards are sexy.
I almost picked the Blue Jays. Then I realized that I hate the Blue Jays. Even if I got a valuable card it would bring me zero joy.

But I could watch highlights of Ichiro and Jr.all day.

That’s certainly part of it. I was close to picking the Cardinals but I’d be much more excited to get a Red Sox autograph than a Cardinal. I’m doing this for fun, not maximizing value.

I was close to Pirates and Marlins. Ke’Bryan Hayes rookie for Pittsburgh, and the Marlins have Sixto and Jazz rookies in this set.

Like the NFL draft — 3 teams I’m interested in, four picks to go. Wish the Raiders were drafting ahead of me.
