Speaking of that... I apologize for the lack of posts. In between watching the MLB playoffs and catching up on The Blacklist and The Walking Dead, I've been more interested in reading your blog posts instead of writing my own.
I've also been busy building long-overdue care packages that will be shipped out in the very near future.
In the meantime... here are a few cards from my collection that crossed my mind after watching Wednesday night's game...
2016 Five Star Silver Signatures #FSSS-JA
After Verlander took home the ALCS MVP Award, I was really hoping Altuve would win the Willie Mays World Series MVP Award.

But after seeing Springer's first two at-bats on Wednesday, I knew he had locked up the award if the Astros could hold onto the lead.

Yeah... I was rooting for the Astros... but Darvish was one of the Dodgers that I was quietly rooting for and I was excited to see him get the Game 7 start. Sadly Springer ended his evening very, very early.

On the other hand, it was awesome to see Kershaw bounce back and pitch four solid innings in relief for the Dodgers. He kept them in the game, but their offense missed out on numerous chances to put runs on the board. I would have been pulling my hair out if I was an LA fan.
2015 Bowman's Best Hi-Def Heritage #HDH-CC
I'm sure Astros fans were nervous too, since both teams proved that they could bounce back from a three run deficit in Game 5.
But in the end, the Astros held on and celebrated their first World Series title. It was really cool to watch the celebration and witness Showrrea propose to his girlfriend.
Congratulations Carlos! Congratulations George! And congratulations to the rest of the Houston Astros franchise and all of their fans!
Happy Friday and sayonara!
