This Week in Baseball Cards: May 31

I get it, the internet isn't for everyone, but c'mon...let's not fight about baseball.  That said, here's Bo Rosny with This Week in Baseball Cards.

Recently, Jon Hamm agreed to act in a movie about the pitchers from India signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates. If one of the producers names seemed familiar to you, it should. That Mark Ciardi is the same one you have seven doubles of from your 1988 Topps set.

And now, back to the aforementioned "fight".  There was a bit of a Twitter flare-up this week as High Heat Stats, a site that highlights obscure baseball statistics, found my “Top Ten Ugliest Baseball Players” list offensive.

This in the same week that The Hall of Very Good posted Collin Grundstrom’s naked butt and called Sammy Sosa a zombie!

I’m the kind of stubborn jerk that if you tell me one list is offensive, you better believe the next one will be twice as offensive.

Maybe next month I’ll do “Scandalous things you did not know about the guys on your baseball cards”. For example, did you know that Lee Tunnell, that dorky looking guy from your 1986 Topps set who looks like he could only get a woman if he paid for it, was in fact busted for soliciting a prostitute in 2009?

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