A couple of months ago, we got a comment from a guy who had made amazing happen and compiled a list of every bobblehead giveaway scheduled for the 2008 season (full disclosure: I attempted to make a list like this for all minor league promotions. It hurt my brain and I stopped before it was even close to done). My admiration for this man knows no bounds.
I sent an email some time later to see if he might like to join the ranks here at Bus Leagues as the official promotions contributor; the resulting, deafening silence indicated that a) he was not interested or b) he no longer uses that email address. Either way, I’m not about to let this golden resource get away for another day. From now on, every Sunday I will post a list of the bobbleheads that will be available during the next seven days. This will allow you, our awesome readers, to strategize: “Can I get OMDQ the Robinson Cano AND the Shelley Duncan? How will we pull off the Braun-Gallardo double when they’re being given on THE SAME DAY?! That jerk is on his own for Petrocelli – time to actually go to a Fisher Cats game, OMDQ.” Okay, that last thought might’ve been a little harsh.
If you want to see the whole list, visit the above link. It will not be a disappointment.
