Brandon Belt...

Have you heard of him? Giants fans should have because he played 63 games for them last year.
I found this bio on of him and found it pretty interesting, but it's kind of long and I'm a little short on time so I'll just paste it:

Married (Haylee)...Attended University of Texas...led Longhorns to College World Series in 2009 after pacing team in batting avg. (.319)...earned All-Big 12 Honorable Mention in 2008...overall, batted .321 (152-for-473) with 14 HRs and 108 RBI in 124 games in his 2 seasons at Texas...Before going to Texas, played one year for San Jacinto College in Houston and was pitcher and designated hitter...batted .441 with 10 HRs to receive All-Conference designated hitter honors and 2007 Juco World Series Big Stick Award for 3rd ranked Gators as freshman...Was selected by Atlanta Braves in 11th round of 2007 First-Year Player Draft, but did not sign...Graduated from Hudson High School in Lufkin, senior, garnered district MVP, All-State and All-America honors...Was selected by Boston Red Sox in 11th round of 2006 First-Year Player Draft, but did not sign.

The reason I'm writing about him, or pasting other people's writings about him, is because I find him to be one of this year's good fantasy draft picks. I have done little to no research for my fantasy team this year, but none the less if you hadn't picked a decent first baseman early like Pujols, Teixeira, Fielder, just to name a few; this guy is your guy to pick...maybe. He will definitively be my pick if I can't get any of the top names! 

I learned of Brandon Belt from getting some of his cards in one of my recent packs. Here's one card:

I found a liking in him, just as I did with Ryan Freel and Michael Bourn. I guess it just the players that if you aren't a fan of the team and don't follow baseball as closely as others do, then you won't know about them. Those kind of players.

And I wish good luck to all the fantasy players and team owners out there for a productive season!

Some Cards From a Couple Weeks Ago That I was Not able to Post.

Hi everybody! Hope everyone's having a good weekend so far. 
More cards come in the mail from William. Thanks William!
I haven't been able to get them posted for a while, but here they are!
A Casey McGreen and a Jeffrey Hammonds - USA cards.
The Jeffrey Hammonds card is from 1991, I didn't know there was a USA team than!
The Casey McGreen card is more recent.

I don't really know what else to say other than Thanks to William and more cards to add to my USA Collection!

I looked up Casey McGreen on Google and nothing for him came up. And for Jeffrey Hammonds, he played on 6 different teams in the MLB and got drafted in the 1st round in the 1992 amateur draft. He Debut in 1993 and played until 2005. In that time span he had 110 home runs and a lifetime average of  .272.

Super Bowl Anyone?

Who's ready for one of the biggest games on television this year? You know, the Super Bowl. The game that's on every year and cost about a million or more for a thirty second commercial time slot. As much as I am looking forward to the commercials, my favorite team is playing; the New York Giants. So I'm pretty excited for the big game! GO Giants!

And for a picture to go with this post...a card I got Eli Manning card!

GO Giants!!!!!!
