Christmas and a Surprise Package From Dugan

I got two packages in recently from my good friend, Dugan.  One was this Mychal Givens Aflac All American autograph that is numbered 20/230.  Givens has really emerged as an effective reliever in the majors.  This is after he was drafted as a shortstop.  He may get some opportunities to close games here and there to spell Zach Britton.  Along with Britton, Givens, Darren O'Day and Brad Brach make a really dominant bullpen.
Dugan picked up this TJ McFarland card for me well before Christmas.  He knew I loved the Orioles and also used to go to Kinston Indians games, so he thought I would like this card.  He was right!  McFarland was just designated for assignment to make room for newly acquired Craig Gentry on the 40-man roster.  If he clears waivers, he will be invited back to Spring Training and could likely start the year at AAA Norfolk.

Thanks so much for the packages, Dugan!
