Reader Adam has brought my 2011 Lineage NEEDS list to its knees by sending a great package of four of the final five cards from my checklist. Adam is a Giants fan and I was able to piece together a few odds and ends from my collection. My favorite from the four Lineage he sent? Probably Mr. Cy Young:
749 COMPLETE games.
That's 6,741 innings in tidy little nine-inning bursts. As Lee Corso would say in the fall, "Yo!"
Only one card remains - #175.
I hadn't looked until now, let's see who it is! Let's pause for a quick Bing search...........
It's one of my Yankees - CC Sabathia! Ironically, he could probably work out with me and Cy.
Where 'ya at, CC?!
Thanks for the great trade, Adam, and thanks for reading!
