After I got home, I ripped open a package from Frankie over at My Life In The Sports Card Hobby and found this awesome card:
2013 Topps Triple Threads Unity Jumbo Relics Sepia #MS1
I immediately recognized this card as being part of a prize package I won on his blog last month. I'm pretty sure this is my first memorabilia card of one of the hottest pitchers in baseball right now.
It was sad to hear that his consecutive scoreless streak ended earlier this evening at 24.2 innings, but at the same time he earned his 100th win of his career. His numbers over the past three games were insane.
Damn you Tabata!
After checking out his 2015 game logs, I noticed that my Wednesday golf game closely resembles Scherzer's season. He has been straight up amazing this season with the exception of three starts in which he gave up a combined thirteen runs.
I too... had a pretty amazing day on the greens. Well... that's if you count my six best holes. I shot three bogies, two pars, and my very first birdie of the year.
Unfortunately... there are nine holes on this course. And like Scherzer, those three holes were pretty bad: two double bogeys and a triple bogey.
But I can't complain too much... especially when I'm lucky enough to have awesome packages like Frankie's sitting in my office.
In addition the Scherzer, he also sent me these:
Thanks Frankie for the generous prize package! Keep up the great blog and congratulations on surviving your first 10 months.
Happy Friday and sayonara!
