Custom Card of the Day: Balfour Edition
Phew. If this wasn't a throwback, it would just be the same old shot.
Seriously. The curse of doing this for five years is having all the shots look the same. Like, for every really original shot, there's one that blends in with all the other ones. And that sometimes is pretty pathetic.
For closers, it can be one of two shots. It can be either them pitching, which is usually pretty unoriginal, or it can be them celebrating after getting a save. And I'm sorry, but all of them look the same. Rafael Soriano, Joe Nathan, Craig Kimbrel, Jonathan Papelbon. They all have the same thing. Balfour's is pretty similar too. So really, unless you have a different shot, or unless you have a sweet throwback, like here, you're Schmidt out of luck, which is weird, because Mike Schmidt has generally good luck.
So yeah. Whenever you have a really bad, overused pose...always be thankful for throwbacks.
Coming Tomorrow- A kinda-hyped rookie for Arizona. No, not that one. Or that one. Or even that one, Goldy's a third-year. Yeah, THAT one.
