If nothing else, it's a nice depth move that looks towards the future of the club, and it sounds like Lombardozzi is expected to make the 25-man roster out of Spring Training and head north with the team. But it also sounds like that would have been true with Gonzalez. And I would have been much happier from an autograph standpoint.
Because I had some pretty solid success with Alex during my spring training trip. This card was ready to slide right into the collection.
But at least someone still might be able to use this one...
I'll trade it for an autograph of Lombardozzi. Anyone?
*This is the second time this off-season that one of my signed and personalized OMC Orioles cards are not going into my collection due to roster moves. But if anyone needs an autograph of Liam Hendriks or Alex Gonzalez, I'm your guy.
