    Been a little busy, so I missed posting a few maildays, so this is a combination of the last 3 days. I've received three trades, with two new Ray Allen's and six new Garnett's:

  4. A fragile pitcher's psyche isn't confined to the Bronx

    The New York tabloids have taken the Yankees to task for bringing back pitcher Javier Vazquez, despite the fact that his first tour of duty in the Bronx wasn't so great in 2004, ending when he lost the deciding game in the ALCS to Boston. But after a stellar 2009 campaign in Atlanta, someone convinced GM Brian Cashman to bring Vazquez back for a 2nd go-round, at the expense of outfielder Melky Cabrera, who's been up & down in the first few weeks of the season playing in the NL.

    Today's mail brought in three trades with six new Garnett's:

    1997-98 Flair Hardwood Leader 16
    1997-98 Upper Deck Star Attractions SA12
    2000-01 Upper Deck Slam Flight Gear GU KG2G

    2006-07 Topps Finest Refractor 16
    2009-10 Upper Deck 3D Stars w/Paul Pierce 3DPG

    These additions raise my collection total up to 1115 different, including 150 GU, which is 20.8% of all Garnett's.
