Ironically, I sent them out to a pitcher and a catcher. Jon Lester, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The Lester request should be obvious. He’s one of the studs of the Red Sox staff. I think I’m also hoping that he’s in enough of a damage control mindset that he’s extra willing to sign cards.
Saltalamacchia was a two-fold reasoning. First, I really want to see how he fits his name on a card. Second, I expect big things from him this year. He has plenty of talent. Plus, with Tek gone, it’s officially his team. No more looking over the shoulder wondering how Tek would handle a situation. It’s his game, and his staff. This should be fun.
Hopefully I’m successful on my requests. Of course, I’ll keep you posted if anything comes though.
Assuming, of course, you care.
