Pat Neshek is off the mound and in rehab--of the physical variety of course. In his spare time, he's keeping his website updated. Plenty of ball players keep blogs, but Neshek's has a special charm. Mostly, its his unflagging love of baseball cards--of the autographed variety.

Here's an excerpt from his most recent update, written like a true collector:

Hey guys I just wanted to give a quick update on my injury. I just got my hinge brace off on Monday and have started rehab. So far the rehab has been pretty boring, I do things with no weight right now and it's not too much fun. I understand that it's going to take time so I'm going to be patient with it.

What has been up with me lately...not much. I've been spending a lot of time trading stuff on the message board. Right now I'm going after baseballs signed by Hall of Famers.

Topps Series 2 and Upper Deck series 2 came out a little bit ago and I'm in both sets. To tell you the truth I'm not too impressed with either card. I find the Topps design boring and they put too much gloss on the cards ... they are impossible to sign even after rubbing them down with powder and signing with a Staedtler pen.
