A blog about baseball cards... and the Padres

This Guy...

Just in case you were wondering who is leading the National League in RBIs...

it's this guy.

With a grand slam against the Diamondbacks today, he brings his total to 102.  He also happens to be the National League Player of the Month for August.  Last year's RBI total: 44.  His previous season high: 64 (2009).

He was also nice enough to sign a ball for me in Spring Training this year.  This is the same ball I've shown with other autos (Blanks, Denorfia, Spagenberg, Powers).  I started this blog a few weeks into the season, and I didn't want to post all the autographs from Spring Training all at once.  Now that it's September, I figured I should start posting them when it fit in.

Anyways, I'm stoked that Chase is having an awesome year, hope he factors in to the Padres long-term plans.  It'd at least be cool to have a Padre player lead the league in an offensive category, especially playing in "Petco National Park".
