And he's answered my prayers. Earlier this week, the Oakland A's finally filled their shortstop void by signing Hiroyuki Nakajima to a two year, 6.5 million dollar contract.
Since Kurt Suzuki was traded to the Washington Nationals in August, I have struggled to find a new favorite Oakland Athletic. I know that Nakajima hasn't played a single game for them yet, but I think my problem has been solved.
Here's the only card of Nakajima currently in my collection:
2009 Konami Baseball Heroes #14
This card was part of the huge care package given to me by Ryan over at This Card is Cool! last month. If you haven't done so already, I encourage you to head over there and check out his sports card blog.
Thanks again Ryan and welcome to the Athletics Mr. Nakajima!
Happy Sunday and sayonara!
