I knew this day was coming

When I started collecting Jamie Hoffman's cards two years ago, I just knew that one day he would become a Yankee.

Today, is that day. The Yankees picked him up in the Rule 5 draft.




The reality is about two years ago, I had this idea that I could be a prospector. I would look around and find a real sleeper. I am spending money on Jose Tabata cards, but he wasn't a sleeper. He was a Yankees prospect who went crazy and was recently named an Arizona Fall player of the year or something.

Still, I thought I could find someone good and latched on to Jamie Hoffman for about a week. I ended up with two xfractor, a refractor and two chrome cards of Hoffman's 2006 Bowman


Last year, he hit .278 with 10 homers and 71 RBIs in double-A.

This season, he split time and hit .291 in double- and triple-A with 10 homers and 64 RBIs. In 14 games with the Dodgers, he hit just .182 with a homer, two doubles and seven RBIs.

Hoffman is 25.
