My 'under the radar' blog featuring my baseball card collecting endeavors and hopefully some of my autographs collected in-person / through-the-mail.

Raul Ibanez released
The Angels came up with at least several guys who can hit this season [C.J. Cron, Grant Green, Kole Calhoun and Collin Cowgill] and Ibanez wasn't cutting it - I still would have liked for him to run into a hot streak or two but he was simply a bum with the bat as an Angel.
As good of a teammate he was assumed to be in the Angels' clubhouse - he probably would have been better filling in for Don Baylor as a hitting coach than as an active player taking away at-bats from a young hitter with power potential like Cron.
