2011 Topps Brayan Peña   Leave a comment

Brayan Pena 2011 ToppsI spoke a little about Brayan Peña in my Lucas May post yesterday. May and Peña should start the season in Kansas City but it will be decision time when Jason Kendall is ready to play. Peña can hit but hasn’t really impressed in the time he has spent at the major league level. Hopefully being the opening day starter and getting some consistent playing time will help him come out of his shell. I think he has the potential to be a very dangerous gap hitter. He could be a very good offensive catcher hitting in the bottom third of the lineup.

I was unhappy initially with the picture I found for this card. I usually don’t crop my pictures this tight. I think it may be one of my favorite cards from the set now, it has really grown on me. I especially like cards of catcher in their gear. Peña only has the mask on his head in this shot but it turned out to be a very nice card.

I have completed most of the set I am going to get I think. I believe I am currently at a 45 card set. I do have one glaring omission still. I have yet to make a Joakim Soria card. Soria would be one of the first couple cards you would think but I have had trouble finding a good spring training picture so far. The younger pictures have gotten most of the playing time so far but I’m sure the closer we get to opening day, the more Soria will pitch. Off the subject remark: his nickname will always be the Mexicutioner to me.
