2011 Just Fair: Derrek Lee   3 comments

Pirates Derrek Lee Just Fair '11 Custom CardDerrek Lee got traded at the trade deadline this year. He went to the Cinderella Pittsburgh Pirates and played his first game on August 1st. He promptly hit 2 home runs in his first game with his new team. Even though the game was a loss to the Cubs Lee created a folk hero out of himself right away with the team. It probably won’t happen but I really want this team to make the playoffs and Derrik Lee will have to be a huge part of that.

Custom Card of the Day: Jeff Karstens 1999 Topps   7 comments

Jeff Karstens 1999 Topps custom cardI just posted a 1999 Topps card of Jair Jurrjens yesterday and now I’m posting the same year of the guy who is 2nd in ERA in the NL, Jeff Karstens. The Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher is under the radar because…well…he’s a Pittsburgh Pirate. The Pirates are contending! This guy must be helping a lot. In his last 9 starts he has given up 2 or more earned runs 2 times. 2 times in 9 games? That’s insane. He posted an ERA just under 5.00 last year and now he is currently locked in with a 2.28 ERA. He must have figured something out this offseason. This great for the Pittsburgh Pirates and players like this are great for major league baseball as well.
