# 666

An employee of Topps, the baseball card company, announced some very interesting news regarding the numbering system of the cards. He has worked for Topps for four years now and his responsibility has been to number each card in the set. Apparently, this gentleman is a major Yankee homer…and his undying love for the Bronx Bombers has been shown by the six hundred and sixty sixth card in each set. Each year this guy gives the satanic number of 666 to the pitcher that did the most to eliminate the Yankees from the previous post season. I kid you not. In 2002 it was an Asian pitcher (don’t know the name) from the Angels…in 2003 it was Josh Beckett of the Marlins…and last year Keith Foulke from the Red Sox was awarded the number 666. I wonder whether this dude will still have his job after this story gets back to the high ups.

Who will recieve the evil number in next year’s set?

….if he is honest, he better give it to Randy Johnson.
