Boom. Yoshi-ed.

I received another package from the Zippy-Zapper.  It was the 2023 Topps base card of Masataka Yoshida, who continues to hit well.  There was a one-week period earlier in which Yoshida did not swing and miss a single time.  He is just simply a fantastic hitter with a great eye.  Every once in awhile he seems to slow down, which coaching has caught up on the signs, they give him a little rest and he comes back strong.

There is still a lot of season left, but Yoshida has to be one of the leaders in the A.L. Rookie of the Year race.  I understand that he played professionally for several seasons, but he still qualifies here.  If he keeps going like this, he may just win it.

Thanks Kenny!  Email me your address and I will send you something.
