Red Sox Need a Bench Clearing Brawl

The Red Sox are in need of a bench clearer. With James Shields on the mound this evening it's a shame they let the opportunity slip by. The sox are flat. Like a coke left out over night this squad has no pop. Their outfield has struggled to bat .240 and the pitching hasn't been consistent. With 3 more major AL East series left in the season can the squad pull it together.

I would have loved to see Pedroia pinch-hit, lean into a pitch and take off after Shields to rile up a team that has dreams of October and couches.

Here at Opening Day Cards we're getting riled up as well. We've got a slew of new videos and some new sponsored goods to be giving away. It's going to be an exciting week. How's your team wrapping up the year? Is September going to be an exciting month?

Crazy Dance by Oakland A's Vendor

Joe and I have been hitting the road lately catching baseball games in Oakland and Denver. Beyond the baseball highlights we captured this dance on camera as well - it may be worth sharing with your friends. What's the craziest thing you've seen at a baseball game?

Again - Joe and I are road tripping around the states for a few weeks this summer so the mailing of free baseball cards is briefly delayed until mid-august. We'll be releasing details about the "all-star" card competition and publishing new videos soon! Enjoy the summer weather - playoffs are around the corner.
