eBay Day

What's this two posts in two days???? I must be losing my mind. No not really just had some more free time and decided to type up another post.  Well the Mets will miss their goal of 90 wins this year unless they play some amazing baseball and pretty much win the remainder of their games.  Hopefully, they at least hit or exceed .500 this year and I would be pleasantly surprised.  They still have some needs and a question mark at shortstop.

Right now the man named starter for the rest of the year at SS is Wilmer Flores.  He was signed at the age of 16 as none other than a SS.  He was/is a highly touted prospect, but we all know how that goes.  Unfortunately for him the past few years he has seen a couple position changes from shortstop to third base back to shortstop to second base back to shortstop.  Hopefully his game against the Dodgers where he committed 2 errors was just a growing pain albeit he did trip over his own two feet while trying to make a throw.  Sorry couldn't find a video.

Well the eBay package of the day is none other than this Wilmer Flores who is a work in progress.  I picked up this 2014 Topps Finest X-Fractor /149 for pretty cheap and was glad to add it to my collection for 3 or 4 bucks.
