Today is Bob Brenly's 58th birthday. He was a favorite of mine during the dreary era of the mid-1980s and during the Giants' renaissance under "Humm-baby" Roger Craig.
I also enjoyed him when he was a broadcaster (and later the manager) of the Arizona Diamondbacks. He seems to be having a good time with his life -- he is a popular broadcaster with the Chicago Cubs now.
Here is a card tribute of Bob that was on this blog last year.
A memorable moment from the 2002 World Series was when Darren Baker (Dusty's son) got too close to home plate and almost got run over. This was a great save by J.T. Snow!
Little ones have been on my mind a lot lately. We've started to do some foster parenting with the eventual intention to adopt one or more children. It really is a new experience for us, but we're enjoying it!
Tom from The Angels in Order posted some cards a couple of months ago that he had acquired. I commented that it was cool that he got a Johnnie LeMaster. Tom e-mailed me and asked if I would like it. A week later the card was in my mailbox. Thanks Tom! :)
A collector on Zistle (The Hopeful Chase) offered me a "trade." He offered me several 2010 National Chicle Giants and didn't want anything in return. He's trying to clean out some space. Here are the cards he sent me:
Isn't that cool? Thanks a lot Dustin!
P.S. Here are the cards I still lack for the team set:
