Interim Cheapo Break: AL West

Baseball's smallest division is up next, with exactly half of the teams being claimed. Small, but mighty, as you'll see.

Team: Rangers
Claimed By: Play At the Plate
Best Card: 2003 Topps Bazooka Blasts #BB-IR Ivan Rodriguez (Game-Used Bat)
The Rangers have a surprisingly nice pile of cards on the way to PAtP. A couple of Teixeira rookies showed up as well.


Team: Mariners
Claimed By: Jonathan @ RGB Cards
Best Card: 2007 Topps Chrome #363 Oswaldo Navarro AUTO
No Griffeys, surprisingly, and a fairly short stack, but the Navarro is actually the first of two Mariner autos. I won't spoil the surprise for Jonathan on who the other one is. Oswaldo, however, needs to put his signature in check. With three at-bats for the Mariners (and no more until he got back to the bigs with Houston last season), Oswaldo is in denial about how much free time he has. Superstars with 700+ plate appearances a year get to half-ass their signatures. You do not. Take some time on that thing, man.

Oh, and Play At the Plate, is your payment on the way?

You should have received it by now....Let me know if it isn't there tomorrow. Maybe it got hung up with the holidays. Sorry about that and I'll resend if necessary.
