Another position I'm sorely lacking in, but fortunately I have this one epic, discount blaster-pulled monster of a young superstar to fall back on (at least until Gavin blows me away with an offer). I think my only other option at short is Nick Gordon, who is still in the minors in the Twins organization.

UT- Ben Zobrist
The card itself is far weirder than the choice to put him on my team. Having a super utility player is a fantastic luxury, and Zobrist is the best in the business. As for the card, COMC called something to the effect of a "Personal Issue Tract God", and that's exactly what it is. There's a huge wall of religious nonsense on the back, along with a JSA authentication sticker (it also came with a separate COA). Weird but cool, I guess. And more importantly, cheap. I was never much of a fan of organized religion, and I don't know how anyone could be these days with the way conservatives have completely perverted Christianity into a religion of hatred and discrimination. But I digress...

|2014 Topps Supreme eBay 1/1..|
It's always nice when you can field two legitimate aces. Sales autos have finally gone up & out of my range in the past couple years, but I think I scored this collection centerpiece for a cool $7.
SP 3- Taijuan Walker

RP 1- Wade Davis
|2017 Topps Fire /250..|
Davis was only with the Cubs for one season, but he left a great enough impression on me to gleefully grab this foily Fire auto when it dropped to under $5.
RP 2- Bruce Sutter
And that be that. I think it's a pretty darn good squad, outside of my utterly atrocious catching situation (and literally not being able to field any middle relievers *cough*). Anyway, thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Until our next...
