Gint-a-Cuffs: A Terrible Pair of Packs.

With only six packs remaining, my Gint-a-Cuffs box has tallied up 147.6 points.  Not bad, but I need a strong finish to have any shot at glory.  Here are packs 19 & 20.

Pack 19:
55.  Andrew Lambo
57.  Carlos Beltran
173.  Jose Fernandez
233.  Dan Straily
275.  Robinson Cano
344.  Jason Grilli
Reg. mini:  259.  Jim Calhoun
Fields of Yore:  3.  Griffith Stadium

Let's see, not the best pack but the Grilli is a short print (+2) and the Fields of Yore is +2 also.  The Beltran is a stupid Yankee (-1).  Net result?  3 lousy points.

Pack total:  3 points
Running total:  150.6 points

Pack 20:
38.  Don Sutton
84.  Francisco Liriano
227.  Jimmy Rollins
281.  Yoenis Cespedes
289.  Kyle Seager
293.  Manny Ramirez
Pastime's Pastimes:  Joe Mauer
A&G back mini:  235.  Masahiro Tanaka

I guess if you have to get a Yankee it might as well be a Tanaka rookie.  It's even better that the card is an A&G back mini (-1 Yankee but +2 A&G back = +1).  The Mauer is +2 also and that's it for the pack.

Pack total:  3 points
Running total:  153.6 points

Well, that was a dud.  What hope I had of victory is starting to evaporate...  Still have four more packs (plus one more hit) so we shall see.
