It doesn't matter if your team is in the postseason or not...it really is one of the best times of the year. And here with another installment of "This Week in Baseball Cards" is Bo Rosny!

Another great Sully video last week, this time focusing on someinfamous moments in Cubs history.  Did Babe Ruth call his shot? Sullysays no. This card is noncommittal, showing the Sultan of Swat’s follow-through.

And while the video isn’t clear about the called shot,the Bambino’s trip around the bases, taunting the Cubs dugout thewhole way, has got to be one of the earliest instances oftrash-talking caught on film.


Sully also takes Cubs fans to task for blaming Steve Bartman for theCubs losing the 2003 NLCS. His video shows that others, primarily AlexGonzalez, should get the blame.

I hadn’t remembered just how badlyGonzalez booted an easy double-play ball. And yet nobody remembers himbecause of Bartman. Gonzalez may no longer have technically been aMarlin in 2003, but he was clearly the most valuable Marlin of thatseries.


Speaking of Marlins, here’s a link to another great Sully video aboutthe flamboyantly awesome sculpture being made for the team’s newballpark that opens up next season, which makes it the mostinteresting new ballpark in ages.

The new brick stadiums that arecropping up everywhere are becoming as repetitious as the turf-covereddonuts of the 1970s.

Can you tell Citi Field from Citizens Bank from Busch from any of these others? With their new stadium, their new manager (Ozzie Guillen!) and their bold new logo, I’ll be rooting for the Marlins to win the NL East in 2012.

They'll certainly be exciting!


And remember, gang, you can check out Bo's daily insights over at his site...Baseball Cards Come to Life.
