People really hate unlicensed cards, but I think Panini and Leaf are doing a great job.  Its a shame that so many collectors are stuffy asshats who hate change.  If you want Topps monopoly on the market to go away, then you need to support these companies.  Imagine what they could do with a license.

Donaldson had a good spring (.377 OBP, .926 OPS), though he has yet to get warmed up in the regular season.  He was tagged as a big regression canidate by a lot of baseball people, but think he is going to have a fine year.  The A’s are a very exciting team, and he and Cespedes are the big reason why they have a real chance to take the AL West.
