Kaybee’s Wish List

A Philly Wish List

Wish List from Toronto

Wow, we already have gobs of Wish Lists emailed in thanks to the post on the community MLBlog. This is another cool way to get traffic to your own blog. Here’s one from Jeremy at, and I am just going to post these verbatim without editing so feel free to include links and even images within your email if you want to be included. Will gradually get to them all so keep an eye out here…

Here is my list starting with,


1.  Toronto Blue Jays Alberta Cooperstown Knit Cap (what is this knit cap thing????  Its a toque and will always be a toque as far as Im concerned).


I need this if winter in Toronto is going to be as bad as it was last
year.  The retro look is becoming very popular (i.e. with flashback
Fridays last year, where the Jays wore their old powder blues),
gotta respect the tradition.  I bet some Jays wore this type of toque
in early April, when the Jays played in Exhibition Stadium.




2.   Toronto Blue Jays Cooperstown/Modern Reversible Knit (toque!)


I’m really in the toque market right now.  It is starting to get very
cold here!  This one is also cool!  I wish the Jays will one day be in
the toque market, playing October baseball away.




3.  Highland Mint Toronto Blue Jays Commemorative Stadium Coin


The commemorative stuff, ya, I am always all over that.  I even have a
piece of turf from the Skydome, when they had the astroturf stuff. 
This would be a great gift for me. 




 4.  Toronto Blue Jays Authentic Game Performance 59FIFTY On-Field Cap w/2008 All-Star Patch


Can you believe, as much as I love the Jays, I don’t own a Blue Jays Cap.  I’m hoping on changing that in the near future!  This would be the perfect hat.  All-Star edition for the last year of Yankee StadiumRoy Halladay
was the lone representative for the Blue Jays in the game.  He is my
favorite player!  When I wear this around campus, people will know I’m
a serious fan!  Please Santa, I’ve been a good 26 year old!




5.  San Diego Padres Authentic 1978 Dave Winfield Home Jersey by Mitchell & Ness


There are a lot of cool retro jerseys at mlbshop,
I’ve always like the padre ones.  This (ex-Jay) David Winfield jersey
is styling, but I would want to personalize one to say Gaston on back
(going back to his playing days with San Diego).  That would be a good jersey for next season!

Guru loves it because: A lot of Red Sox fans already are Coco Nuts after Crisp’s first week.

2006 MLB Easter Gift Basket

Green is Good

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to me fellow MLBloggers. Mr. O’Guru has a favorite color today and here are some goodies I found in Aisle 7:

JorgeingreencapThe very same green Mexico Authentic 2006 World Baseball Classic Fitted Alternate Cap that MLBlogs’ own Jorge Cantu is modeling in the picture at right. Even Fernando Valenzuela modeled one in the blog.

2006 Upper Deck Series 1 set. That’s Derek Jeter trotting around the bases on the foil jacket. What’s inside? Ah, that is the great mystery that has made us love trading cards forever. The Guru is old enough to remember what it sounded like to put a trading card in the spokes of your bike.

Barry Zito BP Jersey. This jersey carefully combines a micro-denier
polyester waffle-knit design with reinforced seams, vented mesh panels,
and underarm gussets for added breathability. Besides, 75 is one of the Guru’s favorite baseball numbers. You never have to retire it.

GrassKellia reminds me about the green grass on a baseball field, and indeed it is the biggest reason of all that we celebrate baseball’s primary color. To that end, I saved the best for last in this story posted today on

Bid at the Auction on Scott Podsednik?s game-worn, autographed Half-Way to St. Patrick’s Day Uniform worn on September 9, 2005. Proceeds from the auction benefit Chicago White Sox Charities, which
supports hundreds of Chicago-based organizations including those
leading the fight against cancer or dedicated to improving the lives of
Chicago’s youth through education and athletics.

Mr. O’Guru has just learned that Nick Green tripled and scored today. One word: customize.

It was impossible to list one of the following without the other:

New York Yankees Irish Pride T-Shirt by Lee Sport.

Boston Red Sox Irish Pride T-Shirt by Lee Sport.

(Wee willowy lads and lassies, that’s a 1900 boxing match just waiting to happen.)


St. Patrick’s Day Hooley Adjustable Caps. Pick your favorite team, but you would have to print it out and tape it onto your hair to be able to wear it today. Sorry, the Guru was busy following the World Baseball Classic, Spring Training and his beloved Hoosiers in the Big Dance or he would have suggested this last week!

There’s plenty more at the Shop for the green in you.
