A blog about baseball cards... and the Padres

Wednesday, July 18, 2012


I was snooping around eBay looking for Alexi Amarista cards (like most of you), when I came across a card of Alexi's from his days as a Cedar Rapids Kernel.  I thought it looked familiar...

The Topps Photoshopper strikes again!

It's pretty slim card pickings for some of the Padres new additions (Amarista, Yasmani Grandal, Yonder Alonso, etc.).  Hoping that the '12 Update Series will provide some cards of these guys in Friar blue.

In 126 ABs since being traded to San Diego in May, Alexia Alexi (dubbed "Mighty Mouse" in the Friar clubhouse) has batted .302 with 4 homers, 18 runs scored, and 20 RBI.  Not bad for a dude listed at 5'7" / 150 lbs.  Here's hoping he can continue to be a spark for the offense and help the Pads put some notches in the win column during the second half of the year.
