What? What? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

So it appears that Casey Kotchman was traded to the Red Sox for Adam Laroche today. Adam hasn't even been a Sox a week.

I know Kotchm has not produced like the Braves hoped but I have to say I did not see this coming. I have always liked Laroche and I hope he does well. I just didn't know he was doing good enough for such a trade.

I am a sheep.

I’m back finally. Computer still broke, but I’m using the one at my Dad’s and my uncle has an old one I can use when I go back home. Computers are great when they work, but pain in the rear that you feel like taking baseball bat to and throwing out ten story window when it doesn’t.

I’ve gotten quite a few packages from folks and I would like to thank all that have sent me something. I plan on sending thank you notes to those that have. Yes, thank you notes. I have no cards to give, so a thank you note is it. I should have been sent them out but I am the world’s worst procrastinator. What are stamsp now btw?

I bought my first O-Pee-Chee blaster a few days ago. I’ve gotten lose packs previously. Hoping to score me a Chipper as I really liked the look of his card in the set. I’ve only opened a pack thus far.

I also bought some lose packs of Allen & Ginter at Target on Saturday. I went in for a blaster but they did not have any. Oddly enough there was a guy there picking up a few lose packs of them as well. We talked and he said he hasn’t been able to find any of them around the area stores and neither have I. He did see some a while back at the Target we where in, but none since. Stop buying them so fast people.

That was the first person I’ve seen also buying cards. It was cool to see someone else though.

Those are the two sets I think I’m going to stick to this year. (Well, if I can find them) I can thank all the baseball bogs for my decision with both

Or mainly dayf for my choice in A and G. His enthusiasm enthused me. Plus they are nice looking cards.

Yes, I am a sheep just as the title says.

And I want me some Hockey cards. I have a grand total of one hockey card in a binder thus far. The only place I’ve been able to find hockey cards is at Target though. Granted I haven’t gone many places, but I would have though Wal-Mart would have something. None of the ones around me have anything though. I do live in the Southern United States though, not exactly Hockey country.

Computer issues and thanks.

First of all I would like to thank evreyone who has followed my blog. You all rock.

and yea, as the title computer has issues. Big issues. I think I screwed it up big time. As as a result, my computer time will likely be non existent for a week or more. I am using another computer right now, but likely will only use it to check my e-mail once a day.

I had just wanted to share some of the packages I would soon be getting in the mail, but I doubt I'll get a chance to for a while. I will mis reading and responding to all your blogs though.
