The Quest

The Baltimore Orioles have been in town since '54 and have had over 900 men don their uniform. My goal is to obtain a signed card of each player. If you have something I need, or see something you want, don't be shy, we can make a deal.

Down on the Farm Friday: Tim Bascom

**My first attempt at a recurring blog feature.  Be gentle.**

With every call up and roster move the Orioles make, I find myself pushed further and further away from my ultimate goal. Typically I have to then scramble, pick up cards of the new Bird and try TTM or IP attempts. Recently I have made scooped up a few cards of the players waiting in the wings. 

Tim Bascom 2008 Just Minors #6

Tim bounced between Bowie and Norfolk last season stalling slightly in AAA.  This season he has anchored the BaySox team, leading in innings pitched, strikeouts and is tied for the team lead in wins.  Hopefully he can maintain throughout the year earning a call up.

Predicting when a relief pitcher may be called up to the big leagues is a total crap shoot.  I am not predicting he is the next to move, but I do hope he makes it eventually. 

If anyone has minor league issue, unlicensed cards or prospects of anyone in the Oriole system, I am looking to deal.  Just let me know.


  1. I've got doubles of many of the minor leaguers if you're interested...

  2. Ryan,
    You know I am always interested in your leftovers. The hard part is and always will be finding something for you. Let me know what you have available and I can always get a list to you.
    Thanks again for reading.

  3. Hey Kirk,
    Just wondering. When will you make an appearance down Camden. Haven't seen you since Fanfest.

    Hope to see you soon!


  4. This Sunday is my first game, just had a baby and makes getting away for a day pretty tough.
