Custom Card of the Day: Buehrle Edition


(checks if the spelling's right one more time)

Today, I made five customs. They were all scrapped from a pretty nice shooting day from Zimbio, and they all were pretty cool. Of those five customs, including Buehrle here, not one of them are among the players I thought I'd be making during the first week of customs.

Okay, I lied. One player. He won't be up for a few days, when it is no longer the first week of customs. But still, this week will be filled with...the others. No Greinke, no Hamilton, no Youkilis, no Reyes. Just other people, who still are good at baseball, but not the kind of people you'd want to see during the first week.

Still, I won't deny Buehrle's accomplishments. He's a great pitcher, one whose luster hasn't vanished with a change of teams, which has befallen so many pitchers of his caliber. He actually had a relatively decent season with Miami last season, though the team sorta tanked. Now that he's one of the stars of a jammed Toronto team, he really has no choice but to perform like he did 5 years ago. 

And yes, I'm fully aware what he did five years ago, in July. Toronto would like more of that.

Coming Tomorrow- Another setback of a big-star-less First Week- people who you'd never expect to be featured in the first week. Like the starting catcher for Your Noticeably Depleted 2013 Texas Rangers.
