Guthrie is the Rockies new 'Ace', and gets the start tonight. The photo is from a St. Patrick's Spring Training game, hence the green glove.

Custom Card: 1991 Upper Deck Rafael Betancourt
Rafael Betancourt comes into 2012 as the Rockies new closer after being the 8th inning guy the last 2 and a half years. Betancourt doesn't get much recognition around baseball, but over 151 innings with Colorado he has struck out 192 guys, while walking 22, for a 8.73 strikeout per walk ratio. Betancourt hasn't appeared on cardboard since 2008 when he was with Cleveland, but he does now have a card in the 2012 Topps Rockies Team Set, card number COL14, so it looks like he will be in Topps Series 2.

Rich Peverley: Bruins Stanley Cup Auto
A strange start to my 2011 Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Champ autograph collection. I bought this Rich Peverley card off eBay in early February and I finally arrived last week, after opening a dispute and hoping I didn't get ripped of it looks like the guy forgot to send it or something. I like the Bruins chances of beating the Caps and really should sweep them, but repeating as champs is a big time long shot.
This is mostly just a quick post as I have been ignoring the blog in favor of actual baseball and the long weekend, and have booked the afternoon off work to watch the Rockies home opener. Baseball is back and the B's are in the playoffs, good sports time for this guy.

Trade w/ Royals & Randoms
Today began well with a completed trade with Royals & Randoms, after sending him some Royals along with some Kickers/Punters and a few Randoms, he sent back this box full of goodness. A pile of Rockies, Redskins and few randoms of my wantlists. I scanned a little bit of each to give a taste of the total package. I have to thank Josh for looking through my lists as there were almost no cards in the box I already had. Along with the Rockies were some 1992 Pinnacle which I am very passively trying to complete, some 87 Topps wants and the sweet 1978 Darrell Porter. The large pile of Redskins included a Brad Edwards I needed and a Jumpy Geathers which fills a need for the most wanted list. Thanks for the great trade.
