Custom Card of the Day: Valverde Edition (!?!)
I know what you're thinking. How the HELL is this guy the top closer in the American League. Sure, he's decent and all, but he's no Mariano Rivera. His team's not the greatest in the league, but he's still racking up a bunch of saves. Just look at the guy! He's slightly overweight, rocking a chin bush and weird specs. Hell, he looks like your office supervisor, not the AL's best closer. I mean...come on AL Closers! YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS! You can't just give into defeat by a guy whose previous best numbers came from Arizona (And we all know where they've gone in the last nine years).
Of course, I'm joking here. But still...closers can do better than Jose Valverde.
Coming Tomorrow- Meanwhile, in the far depths of the AL West, a rookie pitcher yearns for glory, and a Rookie of the Year title. It's a shame that his team's terrible.
