7 of those cards were of Ben Revere, who was a great signer thru the mail. I was sure that I would soon have more signed Ben Revere cards than any other Twin (I have 10 signed Alexi Casilla cards). Then the Twins went out and traded
I like the pitchers (Alex Meyer, Vance Worley, and Trevor May) they got in return for
I am sure Worley will be at Twinsfest along with candidates to replace Span /
The signing of free agent pitchers Kevin Corriea, Rich Harden, and Mike Pelfrey (none of whom signs thru the mail) do not inspired me as they don’t have power arms. Hopefully the Twins can do more to improve the team for 2013; otherwise they should go into total rebuilding mode and trade Josh Willingham and Justin Morneau.
Something happened to me that is never happened to me before, and likely will not happen again. I was the first person in line at an autograph signing. It happened on 11/30 at a Schneiderman’s Furniture store where Vikings QB Christian Ponder was appearing.
I missed the previous signings he had done at the other Schneinderman’s locations, so I got there extra early – like 3 ½ hours early. Luckily, they let me sit in one of their recliners while I waited. Easily, the most comfortable autograph signing I have ever been at.
