Topps Finest: Hong-Chih Kuo.

Who is this? Hong-Chih Kuo (Pinyin: Guō Hóngzhì).

What is this? A Topps Finest autograph card.

Where'd I get it? Our favorite card shop in Albuquerque.

How much did it cost? A few dollars, can't recall the exact amount.

Why is this so special? A ding in the toploader makes it seem as though one of the robots from The Terminator is grabbing Hong-Chih's right leg. Also, the card is shiny. Also, red is a good luck color. Also, we forgive him for pitching 3 and 2/3 scoreless innings in one game against the Mets last May (without giving up a hit) and striking out 8 of the 12 batters he faced.

Hong-Chih is dynamite against the Mets!

That's why we Dodger fans still hold out hope for the guy. He looks so good against the Mets that we imagine what could be if he could do that with every team (and more importantly stay out of the trainer's room).
