Enough with the minis! or should I say Enough with the minis!
Not only am I tired of the minis, but when I look through the 23 Cubs in the set, I get to see just what a disaster this season has been. There are 23 Cubs cards (of 22 players...Castro gets two cards). Of the 23, only nine are on the active roster right now. Talk about turnover!
Before I get to the Cubs cards, a little comparison....
A 75 mini next to a 2012 mini....this years' card is just a bit shorter
The mini side by side with the base card
The 2012 mini next to the '87 mini in the 2012 set
OK...on to the Cubs,
Garza and Stewart are on the DL
Campana, Dolis, Sappelt, and Wells are all in the minors
Baker (Tigers), Dempster (Rangers), Johnson (Braves), Maholm (Braves), and Soto (Rangers) were all traded away.
Kerry Wood retired
And Marlon Byrd was retired by the Red Sox after the Cubs sent him to Beantown in April.
