Mmm mmm, yeah yeah.

Do you ever hear a song on the radio and then for some unknown reason you can't get it out of your head (whether you like it or not)?  Well, that's my problem right now.  You see, I drive about an hour (52 miles to be exact) to and from work each day - so spending about two hours in the car on a daily basis means I listed to a lot radio.  Sometimes I tune in to MLB Radio, other times to 90s on 9 (I have Sirius XM) and other times I'll listen to some of the newer stations to "keep up the kids."

Well, on my last drive home I heard "mmm, yeah yeah" by Austin Mahone (ft. Pitbull) and now I can't get the chorus out of my head.  It's a dumb dumb song too - but it's catchy as the swine flu!!

Anyhow, all I could think as I opened the next couple of 2013 Topps Chrome packs was "mmm, mmm yeah yeah"!

Pack #15:
79.  David Ortiz

Sweet shades, mmm mmm yeah yeah.
116.  Adeiny Hechavarria
Sweet Scrabble name, mmm mmm yeah yeah.
141.  Neftali Feliz
I needed this for my set, mmm mmm yeah yeah.
193.  Refractor:  Nelson Cruz

Shiny steroids!  Mmm mmm yeah yeah.

Pack #16:
39.  Mike Zunino
Chrome rookie card, mmm mmm yeah yeah.
107.  Carlos Martinez
On the back of Carlos' card:  "With 0 strikeouts, Martinez is 5,714 away from Nolan Ryan's all-time record of 5,714."  Mmm mmm yeah yeah.
108.  Rickie Weeks

The back of Rickie's card has "sacker" and "annals" in the same sentence (that's one extra "n" away from being some sort of dirty joke).  Mmm mmm yeah yeah.
172.  Mark Teixeira
One of the lesser evil Yankees in my book.  Mmm mmm yeah yeah.
