Matt Treanor sold back to the Rangers   Leave a comment

Matt Treanor 1984 Donruss custom cardThe Royals basically bought Matt Treanor from the Texas Rangers a couple days before the season began in 2011. Or so we thought; it turns out they just rented him. They sold him back today, both deals between the Royals and Rangers for Treanor this year were for cash. Either way Treanor was good for the Royals this year and it appears that Salvador Perez is here to stay now so there is now longer room for Treanor with the Royals.

The shame of this is that Treanor’s last play as a Royal was getting hammered in a collision at home plate in Cleveland. He was knocked out cold and put on the 7-day disabled list. He played in the Royals minor-league system but never made it back to Kansas City.

Custom Card of the Day: 1992 Fleer Jim Thome   2 comments

Jim Thome 1992 Fleer custom cardA triumphant return! Jim Thome is once again an Indian. He left the team about 10 years ago and now he is back for what is likely to be his last month as a major league player ever. It would be great if Thome could somehow lead the team into the playoffs but it is highly unlikely. The Detroit Tigers are simply a better team.

Minnesota got to benefit from Thome’s 600th home run this year then they gave him to Cleveland where the Indians will benefit from the last games of his career. This is a great way to end Thome’s career.
