Wow! Derek Lowe turns down the Mets and it looks like Milton Bradley may soon be a Cub. With only about 40 days left until pitchers and catchers report it looks like things might finally be moving a little. Ok, let's take a look at what we have today for one of the still unsigned catchers out there.

Had a dentist appointment today and stopped by Wal-Mart afterwords. Picked up a blaster of 2008 Upper Deck Documentary just to check them out. While I have my gripes with the set I am intrigued by the idea and have decided to try to nail the Rangers set. Should be kind of fun. Almost all the rest that I got are for trade.
Got home from the dentist and opened the mail. There was a nice box of Rangers from Cliff over at Capewood's Collections. Awhile back he and I had agreed on a team lot trade and the 300 card box of Rangers was in exchange for a similar box of Phillies and Astros. Haven't had time yet to really look through the box but it looks like I will be able to fill several holes in the collection. Thanks Cliff! Let me know if you ever want to repeat.
The second package I received was the result of winning a year-end give away on The Bench. Bench member MrMopar is a great guy who loves his odd-ball stuff. He had to thin things out a bit though and thus the giveaway. I got a bubble mailer full of odd-ball Rangers. Minis, stamps, over-size cards, even a few cards written almost completely in French! Way cool. If you haven't gotten on The Bench yet, you really need to get there. Tell 'em Spiff sent ya.
