#AGR-RM Russell Martin +5 points total (10 points for hit card divided by 2 for being a Yankster) - NOOOOOOOO!  The first hit of the box appears all crooked-like in mocking fashion.

Well these packs sure dropped a bomb on my chances of winning this contest but with 2 hits left to go, who knows.  I'm not holding my breath though.
