"Four Ginter packs, three damn Yankees, two David Freese minis, and a partridge in a chair tree..."
So, we came out swinging and feel like we've hit a brick wall with our fist. We're averaging +7 points per pack, which puts us on pace for a +173 point box. Something tells me that is VERY optimistic. My personal prediction? +142. Maybe. Whatever it is, the total is going to end in +...42.
