In honor of the new baseball disk being released, this week’s Monster Card Monday edition includes a “card” from the new set.

Baltimore starter Zach Britton’s 2012 APBA card will be pretty dang good but believe it or not, it must have been downgraded.  Take a look at his 2012 hitting stats.

Rookie Britton’s 11-11 win-loss record with a 4.61 ERA was enough to get him for a C in the new set.  For our purposes though, his hitting card is pretty fun, too.  His 1-1-6-6 with four 7s are enough to make me wish the Illowa APBA League didn’t use the Pitcher’s Hitting Card for American League pitchers.
