Two more returns today, the streak is now at 6

------------

Drew Pomeranz 2/2 c/o Rockies in 10 days

Awesome success from the Indians first round pick (#5 overall) in the 2010 draft. He was sent to Colorado in the Ubaldo Jimenez trade, which is usually a death sentence as a pitcher. Even though his ERA is 5.04 this season, he is leading the Rockies among pitchers with at least 4 starts (he has made 13). I'm very happy with the way these turned out.



Paul Konerko 2/2 c/o home in 8 days

Another nice success from Mr. Konerko, I thought I'd try to catch him while he's injured and I'm glad I did. The silver actually looks a little bolder in person, it kind of looks good given that he's on the White Sox.

4 more returns today, streak to 7!

-----------

First I got a failure from Ralph Kiner. He returned my card unsigned in my SASE.

Brad Ziegler 1/3 c/o Diamondbacks in 11 days

My second success from Mr. Ziegler, exact same turnaround. I wanted to get him in A's uni since I already have him in D-Backs uni and they are division rivals with my Giants.



Jonathan Griffin 1/1 c/o Visalia Rawhide in 7 days

Very fast return from this 6'7, 250 lb beast who has already swatted close to 20 HRs this season with high A Visalia. He slipped to the 21st round last year but garnered immediate attention both with his size and with his power.



Brandon Dickson 1/1 c/o Memphis Redbirds in 7 days

Another fast return (these last two were both from my 8/10 sendout) and another 202 Topps base RC!!! I guess I have like 8 of these now? Dickson has done nothing but climb in the ranks since he was signed as a free agent in 2006. He has twice been called up to St. Louis but is currently with AAA Memphis where he is putting up solid numbers.



He also answered my questions:

Another great mailday, 7 more returns and my mail day success streak is now at 8 days!

------------

Jose Osuna c/o West Virginia Power in 8 days

Nice success from a good prospect, he hit .331 last year and has added some power this year (15 HRs so far), and he's still only 19 years old. I really like his auto too.



Nestor Molina 1/1 c/o Birmingham Barons in 12 days

Another good prospect success, he has a nice, compact auto which I like. He was traded to the White Sox from the Blue Jays for Sergio Santos.



Anthony Fernandez 2/2 c/o Jackson Generals in 8 days

Another nice prospect success with another nice auto. He was promoted from high A High Desert to AA Jackson earlier this year, where he has an impressive 2.69 ERA through 10 starts. Hopefully he will make it to Seattle soon!



Dan Bennett 1/1 c/o Lakeland Flying Tigers in 8 days

I'm always glad to get Tigers/Tigers prospects, as they are my second favorite team after the Giants. Bennett projects to be a shutdown reliever, he was just promoted to high A Lakeland and hasn't given up a run through 3 appearances.



He answered my questions too!!






Brennan Smith 2/2 c/o West Michigan Whitecaps in 12 days

Another nice Tigers prospect!!



And the questions:






Daniel Hudson 2/2 c/o Diamondbacks in 39 days

Awesome success from the D-Backs starter!! Things haven't gone his way this year and he's been injured twice, but I think he has a very bright future.



Eric Young Jr. 2/2 c/o Rockies in 12 days

Another sweet MLB success from the Rockies leadoff hitter. He's been tearing it up of late, and is hitting .325 on the season. I guess "#R2BI" stands for refuse to be ignored?

Nice successes. I've gotten 8 from friday and Saturday! All were 2012 bowman prospects. I love how those turn out.

Yet another great mail day today, 7 more successes and now 9 straight mail days with a success.

---------------

Greg Bird 2/2 c/o GCL Yankees in 10 days

Great, fast return from the Yankees prospect. He was drafted out of HS last year in the 5th round, and has good bat speed and plenty of developing power.



Matt Davidson 2/2 c/o Mobile BayBears in 7 days

An even faster return from another powerful prospect. Davidson was a first rounder in 2009 and has already swatted 22 HRs this year



Nick Kingham 2/2 c/o West Virginia Power in 10 days

Very clean auto on these, and yet another 2012 Bowman chrome+paper combo. He had a fantastic year last year (2.15 ERA) but hasn't been quite as good this year with West Virginia. Anyone know what he wrote at the end of his auto besides "31"?



He also answered my questions, I really appreciated the thoughtful answers





Tyler Naquin 1/1 c/o Mahoning Valley Scrappers in 14 days

Awesome success from the Indians' first round pick (15th overall) in this year's draft. He has an absolute cannon from the outfield and a bright future in my opinion.



He also answered my questions!





Josh Satin 1/1 c/o Buffalo Bisons in 12 days

Another 2012 Topps base RC! Very happy with this return.



And the questions...





Marc Rzepczynski 1/1 c/o Cardinals in 10 days

Great success from the Cardinals reliever who played an important role in the Cardinals crazy playoff run last year. I was definitely not expecting this back so soon, most of his returns are like 30-80 days. Very cool looking auto too, I love how it came out.



Mike Cameron 2/2 c/o home in 10 days

Another awesome return from the freshly retired MLB outfielder who had 250+ HRs. Also a great looking auto!

Just two returns today.

Todd Glaesmann 1/1 c/o Charlotte Stone Crabs in 13 days

I think this one just looks awesome. Glaesman was a 3rd rounder in '09 and has been solid so far as a pro, he earned a promotion to high A Charlotte and is hitting .297 through 24 games.



Keith Couch 2/2 c/o Salem Red Sox in 11 days

Another great prospect success from a guy who has had a very strong career so far, moving up a notch each year since being drafted in '10.



He also answered my questions, kind of an ironic answer to the first one given the team he was drafted by:

Today brought 2 returns. My streak is now at 11 days, tied with my record!

----------

Travis Shaw 1/1 c/o Portland Sea Dogs in 15 days

Great success from the Red Sox prospect. He had a fantastic start with high A Salem (.305 avg with 16 HRs) which earned him a promotion to AA Portland.



He also answered my questions:





Scott Downs 2/2 c/o Angels in 8 days

Very nice success from the Angels relief pitcher.

8/23 return #1/10:

Adam Warren 1/1 c/o Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in 16 days

Awesome looking success from the Yanks' prospect who has put up great numbers in the minors and may be a part of the big league rotation next year.

8/23 return #2/10:

Liam Hendriks 2/2 c/o Rochester Red Wings in 10 days

Great return from the Australian, he has been fantastic at AAA Rochester (2.20 ERA) but has struggled with the Twins. He just got called up again and made a start against the A's yesterday. I assume he signed my cards just before flying to the Twin Cities, because it is stamped from Rochester, NY. Nice to get another 2012 Topps base RC too.

8/23 return #3/10:

Fred Lewis 2/2 c/o Buffalo Bisons in 17 days

Nice success from the former Giant who has bounced around a lot since leaving SF. He is currently with the Mets AAA team where he is having a very good season.

8/23 return #4/10:

Matt Williams 1/1 c/o Quad Cities River Bandits in 9 days

Very happy with this success from the Cardinals prospect whose second season has been as good as his first. Looks like he started to sign in a faded sharpie and then switched to a better one. I'm glad he did, haha.

8/23 return #5/10:

Taylor Motter 1/1 c/o Bowling Green Hot Rods PO Box in 9 days

Another 9 day success on a 2012 Pro Debut! I'm very happy with the way this turned out.



He also gave some great answers to my questions:

8/23 return #6/10:

Chase Headley 3/3 c/o Padres in 17 days

Awesome success from the Padres 3rd baseman, who is having a great year and has somehow mashed 21 HRs even though he plays in PETCO Park.

8/23 return #7/10:

Michael Fiers 1/1 c/o Brewers in 13 days

My first TTM 2012 Bowman RC I'm pretty sure, and I like the way it came out. Fiers is having a phenomenal rookie season.
