Familiar Sights

This year's Tiger surprise is Astros cast-off JD Martinez.

Martinez had 10 Home Runs in Toledo before being called up by the Tigers in May.  Why Houston let him go, I have no idea.  They said he was the odd man out with Dexter Fowler, George Springer, and...LJ Hoes? Robbie Grossman?  

Now sitting on 8 HRs, finding some consistent ABs w/ Hunter sidelined with a hammy. We'll take him!

Yes, we also have Dave Clark, Houston's third base coach last year and joined Ausmus' staff this spring.  

Since Topps is ever so eager to recycle images, all they have to do here is photo shop some Tigers away gear and it's solid!

I am now looking for any and all JD Martinez cards, at least for the rest of the season.

Keep it Hot on the Corner, Pat.

  1. Nice observation on Dave Clark. I hope I see recreation of this pic for Tigers many more times.. JD is raking on fire.... needless to say, the topps update rc is on my wantlist... we should do some trading some time too :)
