Wild Thing....

I came across a gold refractor of one of the Pirates fringe pitching prospects, Andy Oliver, that for the price tag I couldn't resist.

Since being traded to the Pirates for catching prospect Ramon Cabrera, Oliver has been pitching in the Pirates minor league AAA affiliate, Indianapolis Indians.  Last year in 124 innings pitched, Oliver struck out an incredible 138 batters.  Unfortunately he also gave up 112 free passes during the season.

If Andy can learn some control, he could be a huge success in the majors either in the bullpen or as a back of rotation starter.  Until then, I'll hold onto this $2 card from 2010 Bowman Chrome numbered /50.
