Custom Card of the Day: Kemp Edition
First of all, that custom is beautiful.
You know, I find it very odd that even when teams compile everything and get all these raw materials for a great team, they never add up in the end. The same parable's repeated itself numerous times, with teams like the 1984 Phillies, the 1996 Braves, the 2010 Phillies and the 2013 Blue Jays (IT'S COMING!) falling victim to being overstacked. Yet the one I feel most sorry for are these perennial Dodger teams, unable to strike gold in Fort Knox.
Even with Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Chad Billingsley, Clayton Kershaw, Josh Beckett, Ted Lilly, Hanley Ramirez, Zack Greinke, Dee Gordon, and countless others, they can't get past people like the Rockies and the Giants. And it's sad, because it's a good team. They have good materials, and they have good pitching and good hitting. The sad part is that doesn't amount to won games.
It's sad, because a lot of these people deserve better than third place.
Or whatever. I'm kinda tired.
