i think to think that when conrad sits in a box like this, he's playing store.

You ever walk by a random house and think to yourself "I wonder what the name of the person who lives there is and where they went to college"?

Well, someone has finally come up with a solution.

a life hacks book! 

i picked this up at the thrift shop yesterday, mainly because it looked like it was "life hacks: the book," and i was hoping it would have some hilariously dumb ideas in it

Larry Andersen's fate, infamously, was to be on the wrong end of possibly the most one-sided trade in MLB history, when he was traded to the Boston Red Sox in 1990 in exchange for Jeff Bagwell, who would go on to play for the Astros for 15 seasons and later be voted into the Hall of Fame.

I will always remember Jose Canseco for once losing track of a fly ball in the outfield and accidentally letting it bounce off his head into the stands for a home run.

Julio Franco was an AMAZING workhorse who played for what seems like forever, and it's cool to him on this card, only six seasons into his career.

Franco played professional baseball continuously, between the MLB, the Japanese Leagues, the Korean Leagues, and the Mexican Leagues, from 1982 until 2008 - 31 fucking seasons. AND as a field player, not a pitcher.

Ask Julio, and he'll tell you: age is fake.

Damn son. This dude played so many seasons, there's no room for his bio.

According to Wikipedia, he played another season, for the LA Dodgers, after this card came out before retiring after a total of 22 seasons in the Major Leagues.

He died just last month, at age 75.

Well done, Don Sutton.

I was wondering why this name sounded familiar, so I looked him up. Gary Gaetti was apparently the first manager of the local (to Houston) independent professional baseball team the Sugar Land Skeeters, from 2012 to 2017.
