Make no mistake, this guy can hit, and will hit, in the middle of the Yankees lineup, and maybe even as soon as this season. He won the Arizona Fall League MVP this past November, and hit a mammoth HR in the All-Star Game. Here's a look at his sweet lefty swing:
Bird signed these three cards for me c/o the AFL. I don't remember sending three cards, I usually send no more than two, but maybe I got greedy. Or maybe he added one. Either way, I'm going to be flaunting these again when he hits his first Yankee Stadium HR in August, 2015.
