Oriole #881- or Jake Fox Takes Me Backwards
Well that didn't take long, now did it? Only hours after the Jake Fox trade was officially announced, he made his Orioles debut as a pinch hitter, and nearly launched the ball out of the Yard. This trade is a good reminder that players and teams normally know about these transactions hours, if not days, before the news trickles down to us fans.
I know that I am reusing the same card/autograph of Jake that I used yesterday, but there is a good reason for that. I forgot to mention yesterday that this scan was lifted from ebay, and is unfortunately is not mine. So now the title of this post might make more sense, as Jake's debut decreased the percentage of autographs in my Orioles collection. The good news is that I heard from a few fans that Jake signed before last night's game, so I hope to add him when I make it to the game on Thursday.
