One Card Post - Red Sox Rizzo

What:  2011 Topps Pro Debut #233 - Anthony Rizzo
Where:  Jeff S
How Much?:  Free (and by surprise!)

:  Because Jeff S is just awesome.  I had no idea this card was even coming in the most recent trade package he sent my way.  Remember when Anthony Rizzo was a top prospect in Boston's farm system?  No?  Don't blame you.  He never played a single game for the Red Sox, and made his MLB debut in 2011 after being dealt to San Diego for Adrian Gonzalez the previous off-season.

In hindsight, that deal doesn't look so good from a Red Sox perspective given how quickly Gonzalez was traded, and what Anthony Rizzo has gone on to become.  Great card though, and a significant new addition to my Red Sox collection, thanks Jeff!

Great card. Rizzo for Cashner may go down as the greatest trade in Cubs history (up there with the Sandberg-DeJesus or the Fergie-Jackson). The guy just continues to build his reputation as a great palyer and great citizen.
