Whoa. Cool. Excellent.

So, I purchased a complete set of 2010 Topps Update on eBay (since I didn't want to waste money on a box), but the set won't be delivered for another few days. I was in Target last night and decided to go ahead and buy 2 packs for the heck of it. Well, I also picked up one of those rack packs of Bowman Chrome with three packs and the special green refractors, but those yielded nothing of interest to me. On the other hand, the Update packs came through for me with three cards of three of my favorite players who are, of course, Atlanta Braves.
The best utility man in the National League. A first rate player and a first rate teammate. Only the most hardened, pathetic, and cynical fan wasn't happy for him when Charlie Manuel named him to the All-Star team. He may have slowed down at the end of the season, but the Braves wouldn't have even been within sniffing distance of the post-season without him.
OK. Yeah. Maybe Buster Posey will be the Rookie of the Year. Heck, maybe he even deserves it. Honestly though, would you rather have him on your team long term or this guy? A healthy Heyward is going to set the NL on fire next year. (One request though Jason, can you stop with the stupid head first slides? Is there anyone left other than players who think head first slides are a good idea? While you're at it, get Prado to stop with them as well.)
This is the best catcher in National League. This is the man who won the MVP of the All Star game. This is the man who should have damn well been starting at catcher in the last five All Star games. Anyone who votes for Molina over Mac is stupid. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
