Default AaronLong's TTM Thread

Hello all,
My name is Aaron and I am a junior in high school. My good friend Noah (known as Noahkalifungo on here) got me involved in TTM when he sold me this Clayton Blackburn autographed card and ever since then I've been hooked! So far I have 5 successes that I will be posting soon!
Any tips or advice would be much appreciated!

My first return was from Mariners 2B/OF Dustin Ackley in 7 days – he personalized it, too! He started the year off strong but has fallen off a little bit as of late. Hopefully the former top prospect can turn it around and have a good year!

He also responded to my questions!

Second return was from Angels pitcher Garrett Richards in 7 days as well. He's off to a great start this year, with a 2.53 ERA and 31 Ks in 32 innings. Last start, he completely dominated the Yankees and outpitched Masahiro Tanaka! I've been a huge fan of his for a while – always loved his stuff! He's only 25 years old, so this could be the beginning of a breakout year!

Got two returns today!
The first was from the great Al Kaline, aka "Mr. Tiger" in 10 days! An 18 time all star with over 3,000 career hits, he was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1980! He was also the first Tiger to have his number retired (6)!
[IMG][/IMG]

Second return from today was from Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen, who, like Ackley, personalized it! He's one of my favorite stories in the majors, having been out of baseball for 4 years working as a bartender to being the Mariners closer for much of 2012 and 2013! He's been a little wild this year, issuing 9 walks in only 11.1 innings, though, compared to only 7 Ks.

Very nice successes! Always nice to get new people in the TTM community. Just wondering did you send the Kaline with a donation?

The Huff address must be old because I know he's been coaching a HS baseball team in San Diego for a few years at least.

Got two awesome returns today!

The first was from Mariners reliever Danny Farquhar (My third Mariner to send back). He had a great year last year, finishing with a 4.20 ERA (misleading because he had a 1.96 FIP) and 16 saves. He's carried that success into this year, with a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings to go along with 13 Ks!


My second return was from another reliever, this time Josh Collmenter of the Arizona Diamondbacks! He's been a valuable swingman in an otherwise terrible Dbacks rotation this year, pitching to the tune of a 3.77 ERA in 8 games, including four starts. He's been with the team for four years now and owns a career 3.43 ERA. Back in 2011, he finished 5th in ROY voting, too!

Hmm thanks for telling me. I guess I'll have to go track his new address down then!
