Blake of the Year

Yesterday, I received a TTM success from Blake Snell.

While he's obviously not a Yankee, this is one of the times I don't mind sending a TTM to a player on another team. Snell is a guy who I respect from a team within the AL East. He's a bit of a quiet star, but I remember him making his debut against the Yankees, looking like a 12-year-year-old on the mound. I figured he'd be a force for the Yanks to deal with for years, and thus far that's looking accurate.

In just his third season in the Majors, Snell won the AL Cy Young. He went 21-5 with a 1.89 ERA. Pretty damn awesome for a dude who pitched the entire season at age 25.

While the Rays are a very pesky team, there's not much to dislike about Snell...except when he's on the mound against your team.


  1. Congratulations on the successful TTM return. I like Snell. Just picked up my 2nd autograph of him (for my lefty Cy Young Award winners PC) this week on COMC.

  2. The good thing about Snell and Tampa is that we all know he's going to get traded to another non-ALE team by the time he reaches arbitration a second time.

    1. This is 100% accurate had it not been for the super team friendly deal he just signed this year (5 years/$50mil)

  3. Nice success! I just wrote to him last week, so I hope his signing habits continue,
