Card: 2010 Allen & Ginter

Huh. What a nice surprise.

I sent this autograph out almost a year ago…totally did not expect to get anything back. Then this showed up last night, personalized and everything.

Michael Brantley is tough, but in a weird way. Every season I am in Cleveland I see him
sign inside, but I rarely venture over to the Indians side since it gets really crowded. He
almost never signs before or after a game. I kind of dont blame him, though. He is
selective about where he decides to sign autographs, but he does sign them…and that
is what counts.

Brantley had a really nice 2013, hitting for a good average, decent OBP and showing some pop. And he always seemed to get a hit when we needed it most, so that is nice too. He and Michael Bourn make a heck of an outfield.  Then again, after seeing an outfield that included Shelly Duncan and Aaron Cunningham…I will take just about anyone who can hit their weight.
