Mail Day #1…Brett Lawrie Style

18 Feb

Well, I thought that even though this is far from my first mail day, it’s the first one since the start of KKC (yep, I’ve already shortened the blog name in posts LOL). Last year, I really got back into watching the Jays. I’ll be honest, my wife and I had fallen off the band wagon after the lockout. Before that, we were always at games…we had a share in season tickets when you were lucky to get up in the 5th deck nosebleed area, and we were happy to be there (despite some wicked weekend sunburns on my part)! The first game that Brett Lawrie was called up, our household took a real liking to him, and we hadn’t even realized he was Canadian at that point! The heart, the hustle, the desire to be in the big leagues showed through big-time with Brett…the fans love him; he seemed to fit right in with his team-mates and when you look at this stats for his rookie season, well, they aren’t too shabby…

43 Games…150 At-Bats…9 HRs…25 RBIs…and a .293 Average

Hopefully this kid is a Blue Jay for a long time…and the way the management of our team has turned around over the past couple of years, it looks hopeful that we’ll see #13 at third base for years to come.

During the off-season I decided that maybe I’d go after a few Lawrie cards of my own…here is the meager start to that quest…I should probably try to snag a few more before the 2012 season starts, so that I’m not paying premium prices if he continues this season where he left off 2011…enjoy the quick show…if there’s one thing to say about Bowman Chrome cards, they do make for colourful mail days…
