c/o: Home

Almost 2 full years for this one.  I only sent him 2 cards, so he threw in an extra one for me.  Bobby was a member of the last Stanley Cup winning Leafs' team(1967).  I had to throw that in there.  He was one of the best defensive defencemen to play for the Leafs.

Nathan spent this season splitting duties with Robert Mayer in Hamilton.  He put up decent numbers on a very depleted Bulldogs roster, where most of their good players, were pulled up to Montreal for alot of the season.  He was in the Islanders' system for a few years and played 10 games for them in the 2010-11 season.

Travis Snider TTM Success

Mailed:  07/05/2011
Received:  04/13/2012
Days:  283
c/o: Toronto Blue Jays

Travis has had a bit of a rough go with the Jays.  They never seem to want to give this kid a long look in the majors.  He hit 14 homeruns in only 82 games in 2010.  So, if you double those numbers, he would have had 28 on a full season.  In 2011, he only got in 49 games, and never was a regular and bounced between Las Vegas and Toronto through the season.  Again, this year, they sent him back to Las Vegas after spring training.  Maybe he will get a shot later on in the season, but I think the Jays owe it to him to trade him somewhere that he might get a chance to play.
