Ouch! The Rangers announced late last night that Hank will be on the disabled list for three to four weeks. Apparently he tore a hamstring sliding into second base during the Rangers win over Minnesota on Friday. The wheels sure seem to be coming off early for Texas. I guess when it rains it pours.
Blalock looks much healthier on card number 75 of Topps' 2004 offering. I like having the team name easily readable at the top of the card but it makes the logo on the lower right seem redundant. Too much foil but not a bad design overall. I do like that the player's uniform number is on the front of the card. The small icon on the lower left matching the photo of each player is also a nice touch.
