Collection Highlight: 2009 Bowman Chrome Beamer Weems Autographed Card

By my calculations, it is 76 days until Padres pitchers and catchers report for duty in Arizona.  Just 123 days until baseball’s Opening Day. For those of us (like me) who can’t wait for the cold weather to pass and for spring to arrive, here’s a random Padre card from my personal vault of random prospects:

Beamer Weems is a shortstop who has been in the Padres’ minor league system since 2008.  I took a liking to him because he was a local kid (played high school ball in Virginia Beach). The book on him was that he is a plus defender with a so-so bat.  Guess the bat never developed because he was left off the 40 man  roster. Which means he is eligible for the Rule V draft December 6th.
