A Fistfull of Brewers

Usually I save grandiose displays of pack contents for A Pack a Day, but this pack was so good (from a home team supporter's perspective) that I had to share it here.

Say it with me:
Let's tear in.

124 Yovani Gallardo

129 Yunel Escobar
119 Jeff Francis
5 Daisuke Matsuzaka
158 Khalil Greene
BP91 Sean Danielson
BP102 Ken Holmberg

BCP Stephen Chapman

BCP70 Ronald Ramirez
BP24 John Raynor Gold Parallel

Three Brewers in a pack of ten cards in phenomenal. That's 30% for those of you who attended public schools. That's an accumulation of Brewers at an astonishing rate. It's like one of those experiments in a high school biology class where you were forced to take a Petri dish around to various places in the building to attempt to culture bacteria from locker dials, doorknobs, urinal cakes, and the like. I would love to see a collection of Brewers cards multiply at an exponential rate in a giant-size Petri dish the size of a helipad, so long as none of them were 1988 Donruss.

Plus, both of the Brewers prospects are playing for the High-A Brevard County Manatees, the team with possibly the cutest logo in all of sports.

Awwww...doesn't it just make you want to punch an outboard motor owner in the face?

Both Holmberg and Chapman are batting in the .290's, but both are still a few years away from the bigs.

The wheels are in motion...
