This Week in Baseball Cards: January 24

So Manny Ramirez might be going to Oakland? I guess he is a personality fit for Oakland...the Oakland Raiders, that is.

Here's Bo Rosny with This Week in Baseball Cards.

Ramirez would be forty the next time he plays in a major league game. Meanwhile, the Rockies have brought in a guy ten years older than Manny to compete for their fifth starter’s slot. When Jamie Moyer made his big league debut, Manny was in eighth grade. Another way to look at it: This is the Rockies’ twentieth season. When the Rockies franchise debuted, Moyer had already pitched in 143 games over six seasons.


Finally, on a serious note, came the sad news that Gary Carter’s illness took a turn for the worst. Carter was well known as one of the nicest guys in baseball. You may not have known that he was also a huge baseball card collector. Check out this 1983 interview from Baseball Cards Magazine.

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