I first of all want to thank the baseball Gods that Jim Crane decided not to change the Astros’ name. I just can’t make any sense of why anybody would change the name of the baseball team after it has had the name for over forty five years.
Secondly, I would like to congratulate Ron Washington and the Texas Rangers organization on Washington’s two-year extension. It couldn’t have happened to a better man and manager.
The reason for this blog post is Skip Schumaker’s new baseball card. The picture is Schumaker’s actual 2012 Topps Series 1 baseball card. This is not acceptable. I’m anxious to see how Schumaker reacts, although I’m sure he’ll be a good sport about it. I understand that the rally squirrel is the reason for the Cardinals winning the World Series you know, if you’re completely insane, but his own card? Really?
