This Week in Baseball Cards: November 28

With Thanksgiving, Black Friday and whatever other made up holidays in our rearview mirrors...it's time to get back to talking baseball, right?

Starting today, I'm going to make it a priority to get you This Week in Baseball Cards every Monday morning as was once promised.

Oh, Bo Rosny always has his stuff together...the blame falls on me.

So, without further adieu...here's last week's This Week in Baseball Cards.  Haha.

Lots of congratulations to go around.

Congratulations to Dale Sveum on being named manager of the Cubs. With this site’s obsession with Milwaukee mustaches, it’s a good time to showcase Sveum’s playing-days 'stache. Too bad he now goes for the aerodynamic swimmer’s look.

Congratulations to Ryan Ripken for being accepted to the University of South Carolina and it’s baseball team, the Gamecocks. Ryan is following in his father’s footsteps, just as his father followed in the footsteps of his well-known dad, Cal Ripken Sr., who merited his own Donruss card as a coach back when his son was just “one of” the best prospects in the Orioles organization.

Finally, congratulations to Bob Uecker on being inducted into the Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame. Now, won’t anyone nominate "Da Meat Hook", Dmitri Young?

And remember, gang, you can check out Bo's daily insights over at his site...Baseball Cards Come to Life.
