Jose Mesa, 1988 Donruss #601
I'm so impatient for baseball to come back that I'm looking for an angle in the upcoming Super Bowl. As you know by now (if you even remotely care), the Seattle Seahawks will be meeting the Denver Broncos two weeks from tonight in the NFL's championship game. Out of curiosity, I asked Baseball Reference how many players had suited up for the Orioles as well as the Colorado Rockies and the Seattle Mariners. There have been a grand total of six, and they're not the brightest stars in the O's galaxy: Eric Byrnes, Jack Cust, Jeff Manto, Jose Mesa, Kevin Millwood, and Jamie Moyer. The Jose Mesa Bowl doesn't exactly have a magical ring to it, huh?
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
