Stewart has yet to live up to his potential as a first round draft pick. He was promoted to Frederick this season, even though his numbers at Delmarva weren't all that impressive. He ended the season with 105 hits, 10 home runs and a .254 batting average. He was supposed to be a power hitter, but has yet to really demonstrate that in the O's system. My hope is that he can work through it and re-establish himself during the 2017 season.
Thanks so much for the trade, Dugan! I love the card.

Fun fact, Wrigley Field opened in 1914 and the Cubs have played there since 1916, eight years after their last World Series victory. This makes it by far the oldest baseball stadium to not hold a World Series Champion.

Kim ended up endearing himself to Orioles fans and completed his rookie season with 92 hits, 6 home runs and a .302 batting average. He won't win the Rookie of the Year award, but will definitely get votes. I wasn't sold on Kim at the beginning of the season, but I am happy that he is an Oriole, now. He really won me over!

Farmer (b. 1991) has played in the majors since 2014 for the Tigers. So far, he has pitched in 32 games, but has yet to register a win. He is 0-6 with a 6.84 ERA and 62 strike outs. I wonder how long of a leash he will have in the majors if he keeps carrying that high of an ERA?
I mailed to Farmer on April 13 and got the cards back yesterday, for a 188-day TAT.

The Triple Threads product itself is still one of Topps best offerings of the year, and I really liked this year's design. I also like that the photo of Davis shows off where the patch came from. That's pretty cool!

My friend, Dilan, has helped me out by doing some 50/50s at Durham Bulls games this past season. I sent him a bunch of Bulls cards, and he got me a few signed back in June, but I told him to hold the rest until the end of the season. You know, just in case he was able to get more.
So, he was able to get some more signed, and the top two are of a guy I have followed a little bit. Richie Shaffer went to high school in Charlotte with my good friend, Corbin. I have followed his career since he was drafted and am happy to see that he has made it to the majors. I was also glad to be able to add a couple 2016 Topps and Bowman to my album.
Dilam also sent me back the extra cards that he wasn't able to get signed. I'm hoping I can get him some more stuff for next season, when rosters are announced.
