carroll cares

after waiting for two years for someone to make a card of jamey carroll in a dodgers' uniform, topps finally came through with a carroll card in their 2011 update set.  
shortly thereafter, carroll left los angeles and signed with the minnesota twins.

i sent a copy of carroll's lone dodger card to him c/o the twins' spring training home, and waited a few weeks before it showed up in my mailbox the other day.
it looks great.  it's only my second return of the spring - the first was jerry sands.  hopefully the other few players i sent to are waiting for camp to break to hit the mailbox.  anyway, carroll is slotted to be the twinkies' everyday shortstop as they sent last year's bust to the minors.  i'm looking forward to seeing his scrappiness on display on fox sports north starting next week.

thanks jamey for signing and returning my card!

Great TTM! I'm thrilled to see the Twins once again (finally) with a solid middle infielder. Sounds like he's doing fairly well in ST and is hitting at about 260.
