  • What Was I Thinking?!?! - Baseball Starting Lineup Edition

    After finishing my series on SLU's I reflected back on all the lineups I bought throughout the years and remembered the good ones.....and the bad ones as well. This post will showcase what I believe are the 5 WORST lineups I ever bought in Baseball. Yes I paid full retail for these babies...brace yourself

    #5-1999 Ben Grieve Extended

    I worte about this and J.D. Drew piece earlier in one of my SLU Blog posts, but seriously in the middle of a HURRICANE, I went to HEB to BUY THIS FIGURE (Along with J.D. Drew). Ben Grieve, you will live in infamy.

    #4-1999 Jaret Wright Extended

    Remember when Hasbro made a Jaret Wright SLU 2 seasons too late? Remember when I bought it anyway??? Yet another infamous HEB find (this time in Flour Bluff, which is a good 20-25 minutes away from my house).

    #3-1998 Tony Womack Extended

    In 1998 I asked myself one question....who the HELL is Tony Womack and why did they make a figure of him. Well he's in a cool sliding pose so he must good thus I'll buy him. Womack wasn't THAT bad of a player, but he's one of those sit on the shelfs at Wal Mart type guys, yet I STILL bought it. Had I waited, I could have bought it on clearance. I wouldn't be surprised if Wal Mart just threw out the remaining pieces, hell they got one sucker to buy one, and that was good enough!

    #2-1998 Hideki Irabu Extended

    Maybe it's those little stickers, but man I got hammered on Extended Series pieces, all 4 so far have been Extended Series. I bought into the Irabu hype and thought he'd be the next Nomo like ace for the Yankees. He never really panned out unfortunately and in a sad turn of events, he committed suicide last year.

    #1-1997 Ismael Valdes

    WHO???? (Yet I bought it anyway)
