The brooms are out all over!

Today's card is number 67 in the 2002 Fleer Authentix set. It features former Ranger and current Brewer Gabe Kapler. I chose to post this card because it is designed to look like a ticket to a Major League Baseball game.

Tickets are exactly what Gabe and the rest of the Brew Crew are going to need if they lose tonight. If they don't win that's the only way they will be able to see the games in person. No need to feel lonely though guys, there are three other teams in the same spot you're in. The Angels, Cubs, and White Sox are all winless as well and facing sweeps.

A quadruple sweep would eliminate any advantage that a team might garner by playing out a series. Really kind of an odd occurrence. I am sure it has happened before but I don't like it much. My Grandfather used to say that he wanted every playoff series and the World Series to go the maximum number of games. I asked him why once, he winked and said, "Because, that means more baseball!"
