A Tale of Two Rizzos

Anthony Rizzo was once a promising young hitter in the San Diego Padres organization.  A trade sent this future all star to the Chicago Cubs, who won the 2016 World Series.  But don’t worry! In return, the Padres got a forgettable pitcher with an unforgettably awful beard.


I love jersey shirts and normally buy them all, but this one is a sad reminder of what could have been in San Diego. Plus, it’s a Large, and I wear Medium.

This was one of the more bland designs the Padres used in the 2000s.

Brand new this baby went for $22, but I got it for $4.99.  WIN.  Plus, MLB is now charging $30+ for these shirts, so really I saved around $25.

Alfonso Soriano Columbus Clippers Bobblehead

Soriano Bobble

I found this awesome vintage Alfonso Soriano bobblehead in a Columbus, OH, Goodwill.  The Clippers were once the New York Yankees AAA team, but they Cleveland Indians currently call Columbus their AAA home.

As with most bobbleheads it really doesn’t look too much like him. Although I’ve seen much worse.

I’m so tempted to open this and proudly display it, but I want to keep it forever safe in its box…WHAT SHOULD I DO???

You’d also have to “turn back the clock” to see C.C. in and Indians uniform.  I’m very grateful the Yankees have him locked up for the next few years.

Minnesota Twins Baseball Duffle Bag

Since the Minnesota Twins are in town playing the Braves I figured now would be a good time to post this cool Twins duffle bag I found a few weeks ago.

Twins Bag 1

In three minutes of Googling I was unable to deteremine when was made, but I found one listed for sale for $10 plus $7 shipping, confirming that this is a pretty valualbe find.  I snagged it for only $2.49.

Twins Bag 2

As you can see, it’s actually a very nice bag.  Solid material and rather spacious.

I just wish the Atlanta Braves could have giveaways this cool…
