Topps Can’t Get it Right

Given his early successes so far this season, it's probably a pretty safe bet that Hyun-jin Ryu's rookie card will be a hot ticket item.

Well, Topps recently released their first card of the Los Angeles Dodgers hurler, but there's one issue…dude never played in Japan.

It's an easy mistake to make, right?  I mean, just look at all those silly names.  Incheon, Beijing, Hanwha…Canada!  How can one keep track of where Ryu pitched?!?

Big deal or no?

Shawn is that guy who instead of sitting there talking about the game going on around him is talking wise about the history of baseball. He believes baseball figures such as Tommy John, Harold Baines, Ron Guidry and Billy Martin deserve their own plaque somewhere if not in Cooperstown and fondly remembers the time he saw Rickey Henderson walking into a hotel with a woman on each arm following a Yankees game.
