Giving the Kids What They Want (Assuming the Kids Want Six Group Break Packs Opened)

As the long-winded post title says, it's time to open more packs...and when I say more, I say more.  As in three more than usual.  (That'd be six packs.)

Series 2:  Pack 10:
Nate Schierholtz - Cubs
Mike Leake - Reds
Johan Santana - Mets
Nick Markakis - Orioles
Jesus Guzman - Padres
Buster Posey - Giants
Scott Baker - Cubs
Logan Morrison - Marlins
Phil Coke - Tigers
WBC-11.  Pablo Sandoval - Venezuela

Obviously, 'ol Pablo belongs to the Giants.  Actually, he looks more like he belongs to a buffet line but that's just mean.  Pretend I didn't say that.  Seriously though, there are centers in the NFL that look downright skinny next to the panda.

Pack 11:
Carlos Beltran - Cardinals
Josh Rutledge - Rockies
Andy Pettitte - Yankees
Alex Avila - Tigers
Jenrry Mejia - Mets
Derek Jeter - Yankees
Greg Dobbs - Marlins
Jerome Williams - Angels
Million Dollar Chase code
382.  Gold parallel:  Jackie Bradley Jr. - Red Sox  #0217/2013

Congrats to the Red Sox for landing the nice Bradley Jr. gold parallel.  I'm happy to report that Boston was one of the few claimed teams in the break - a good choice by MetallAttorney if you ask me!

Pack 12:
David Freese - Cardinals
Ryan Doumit - Twins
Vinnie Pestano - Indians
Anthony Gose - Blue Jays
Marco Scutaro - Giants
Jordy Mercer - Pirates
Alexi Ogando - Rangers
Steve Lombardozzi - Nationals
Jordan Danks - White Sox
CH-85.  Chasing History:  Tim Lincecum - Giants

I'm still bitter than Lincecum remembered how to pitch once the Reds/Giants playoffs series started last year.

Pack 13:
Evan Scribner - Athletics
Bruce Chen - Royals
Jordan Zimmerman - Nationals
Austin Jackson - Tigers
Pablo Sandoval - Giants
Cole Hamels - Phillies
Tommy Hanson - Angels
John Buck - Mets
TM-87.  Mini:  Jurickson Profar - Rangers

648.  Emerald parallel:  Dan Straily - Athletics

The emerald parallels were made for teams like the Athletics (who rock the green as it is).  I like my parallels to match the team colors - and this one is perfect!

Pack 14:
Jake McGee - Rays
Jose Molina - Rays
Jhoulys Chacin - Rockies
Placido Polanco - Marlins
Aroldis Chapman - Reds
Michael Cuddyer - Rockies
Carlos Carrasco - Indians
Ryan Dempster - Red Sox
Cole De Vries - Twins
WBC-6.  Giancarlo Stanton - USA (Marlins)

As before, the WBC cards will go to the big league team that the player currently plays for.  That seems reasonable to me.

Pack 15:
Jorge De La Rosa - Rockies
Andrew Cashner - Padres
James Loney - Rays
Jason Kubel - Diamondbacks
Michael Bourn - Braves
Koji Uehara - Red Sox
Brandon McCarthy - Diamondbacks
Mark Ellis - Dodgers
CTC-43.  Cut to the Chase:  Miguel Cabrera - Tigers

MM-17.  Making their Mark:  Anthony Rizzo - Cubs

First, my fingers are thankful that the six packs are now all ripped and posted.  Second, that Cut to the Chase card is sweet, sweet, sweet.  Topps really upped their base set insert game if you ask me - I've been impressed (and this coming from a guy who swore he wouldn't buy any flagship this year).
