So, I guess I need to embrace the next first baseman in the minors, Christian Walker. I actually do like Walker, having seen him in his days as a Gamecock. I went to a few Cocks games with my younger brother who lives in South Carolina, so that gives me a good reason to follow him.
I got this 2015 Topps Chrome RC auto off of Instagram in a trade with a nice kid named Nick that I have traded with before. We did a straight-up trade for Chrome autos. I sent him a Corey Spangenburg auto for this Christian Walker. Not bad at all.
Walker has had a pretty decent season at AAA Norfolk. The playoff-bound Tides have benefited from a surging Walker. He has 18 home runs, 136 hits and a .257 batting average this season. From what I understand, offense comes at a premium at Harbor Park, so Walker's numbers are actually pretty good. It looks like he will the the O's starting first baseman next year, so I need to start getting excited, right? Mehhh, maybe in November I will be feeling it. I'm not at this moment in time, though. May just put a bag over my head for a while.
Thanks for the deal, Nick. I do appreciate it.
