To be honest, I have forgotten about my blog. This is due to multiple factors.
1. School has been so busy for me, but the semester is almost over! I'll soon have a month to catch up.
2. I didn't have my main email address connected to this account. I always forget to check that email and end up falling behind on trades. I've changed that now. My main email is now connected so all of you will be able to contact me much easier and faster.

I know this hasn't been much of a blog for the past couple of months. I really hope to change it. It's not going to be all about baseball cards, though. I want it to be about other things, too! Haha, basically it will be 50% baseball and trading and 50% whatever is on my mind at the time.

Please contact me through my changed email address, and let's make a trade!

I love Josh Beckett. I've always stuck by him through his good and bad years. He's having an amazing 2011 so far, but with only 9 wins to show for it. All the other Sox starters get at least 5+ runs a game of support with some getting 6. Beckett meanwhile gets just over 3. It just goes to show that winning is a team effort. Pitching is obviously important but you need the offense to help you out in order to get that W. Sabathia has 16 wins this year, pretty much getting a W or at least a decision every 5 days. (Beckett has 8 no-decisions. Most of those went into extras.)

It's interesting that he's gone head to head against Beckett 3 times this year. The record: 3-0 to Beckett. When voting for the Cy Young comes along, do you think the writers will take into account this factor? Probably not. Of course, there are other guys who definitely deserve the award like Weaver and Verlander.

Now I just had a thought. Is it possible for Beckett or Ellsbury for that matter to get consideration for Comeback player of the Year? Beckett had a 5.78 ERA with a 6-6 Record in an injury plagued year. He currently has a 2.20 ERA and was named an AL All-Star. Jacoby only appeared in 18 games last year and now has that number in the home run column. Ells was named to his first All-Star Game and is having a career year.

(I really need to get my Josh Beckett card collection posted on here soon!)

Allen and Ginter?

Hey guys,
Just got back from vacation and trying to catch up on things. I'm debating whether or not I should purchase a box of A&G or concentrate on my current sets.

What do people think of the 2011 A&G? Maybe your suggestions and comments will help me decide. Let me know!

Congratulations to Adrian Gonzalez, David Ortiz, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Josh Beckett for making the 2011 All-Star Team. I feel that all four players are very deserving of the honor. This will be Adrian's 4th, Papi's 7th, Josh's 3rd and Jacoby's first time as an All-Star.

Just some quick thoughts before bed.

This probably isn't the best time to be posting this considering the Sox have lost four in a row to the Padres and Pirates, but this is just really bothering me.

There is a guy I work with who considers himself a huge Red Sox fan. All he does is complain about the team, the city, and the ballpark. According to him, Fenway should be literally blown up because the seats aren't comfortable. The ballpark is almost 100 years old. Obviously, it's not gonna be as great as the new Yankee Stadium, which he absolutely loves. If you're a true fan, you should appreciate the history Fenway holds and all the greats that have made history there. He hasn't even been to Fenway in seven years so my co-worker hasn't seen the renovations yet.

Also, in his eyes, Terry Francona is the worst manager in the league. He gave no legitimate reasons why, but just because. Who knows if we would have 2 World Series titles under a different manager, but obviously he doesn't care about the titles we've won under Francona and the 86 year drought he ended. It's possible that a different manager could have done the same thing, but we did it under Francona. The Red Sox have had success under him, so why is he the worst manager in baseball? Go figure.

Let's hope for a win in Pittsburgh tomorrow. Then it's off to Phillie. Josh Beckett vs. Cliff Lee on Tuesday. That should be a great match-up! Beckett has been one of, if not the best pitcher in the American League this year. (Also, he has hit two home runs with the Red Sox. Both of them coming at Citizens Bank Ballpark.)

Rainy Days

I feel like it rains every single day. This is not how summer is supposed to be. I've been attempting to organize all my baseball cards during this dreary weather, but haven't been too successful. There are many, many holes to pretty much all of my collections. I'd like to try to fill them in. Let's make a trade! All of my wantlists are on the right hand side of this blog as well as a list of most of the cards I have available for trade. Take a look and shoot me an email and we can work something out! Thanks.

Stanley Cup Champs!

I am so horrible at blogging. It's been over 4 months since I posted something. For a while, I was too busy with school to post on here and then it got to the point where I just forgot about it completely. I really need to get back to doing this on a weekly basis at least!

I'll need to update all my wantlists for starters. I've decided not to start any new sets until I've completed at least HALF of my current ones. Not sure how that will work out, but I'll try.

As you all know, the Bruins finally won the Stanley Cup after a 39 year drought. I had the opportunity on Saturday to go to the parade in Boston. Never before have I experienced anything like that and I don't think anything else will ever come close. Over a million people were in Boston that day. Here are some shots I got during the rally. Enjoy!

P.S. I promise I'll make my blog a regular thing now!

Just a few thoughts on my collections...

Before I start any new sets, my goal is to complete the one's I have already started. I'm not sure about everyone else, but I absolutely hate it when things aren't finished. It really bothers me. Anyway, I have plenty of cards available via trade. Let's get something done! After they are complete, I think it's necessary that I put more thought into what I collect. You know, just being more selective over particular sets. In the past, I've spent way TOO much money and I really need to budget myself. I think I want to concentrate on some of my player collections as well and make a bigger dent on my 1975 Topps set. (Which is extremely tiny at the moment.)

And someday, I'll actually find the time to post some of my player collections!
Hope everyone has a good weekend.

I'm Back.

Hey Everyone,
I realized that I haven't posted in such a long time. Honestly, I abandoned this blog for a while. There has just been so much going on right now that I didn't have time to even look at cards, let alone create a wall post. Also, I haven't been able to access my Yahoo email so if anyone emailed me about a possible trade, I'm sorry for the lack of response. It's back up and running now. I hope to make my blog a regular thing once more.

I'm so excited for Spring Training. New England, or should I say the Arctic Circle, needs something to look forward to. The snow has gotten way out of hand and I'm tired of shoveling every other day.
