i am no charlie sheen, but i figure that i am not losing at life. i've got good friends, a good job, a great family, good health, and a pretty good little baseball card collection. that last part certainly isn't necessary, but i think it helps in my case.
i don't need any extra motivation to keep going, but if i did, chris coghlan's 2011 topps attax card provides it.
rookie of the year (he beat out, among others, andrew mccutcheon that year) to be better at hitting fastballs and change-ups. maybe if he joined the dodgers, i would wish for it, but certainly not at my expense.
it seems like not too many marlins fans are losing either. coghlan's stats had been in decline since 2009 until a slight uptick last year. still, he remains in the majors which is no small feat. i suspect that whomever is doing the losing (jeffery loria?), chris coghlan thanks you. it's just not me.
