  3. Arms, legs and recently freed hair flying everywhere is just bonus points.

  4. I’ll trade you a Smoltz rookie card for that Alexander.

  7. These are the kind of cards that give me respect for the photographer. We’ve all been to baseball games with people that just don’t get baseball and sit around eating hot dogs and staring at a field just waiting for action to happen. Those days end somewhere around the sixth inning, and we’re all like “Shit. I’m never going another baseball game with you again.”

    Yet, waiting for the action to happen is the photographer’s bloody job. It’s not like he can enjoy the game or the nuances that make it great. He’s stuck in the same position as the “baseball is ballz” guy for the entire damn season. Just meters away from the action in full-concentration mode waiting for that perfect moment.This is an exercise in self discipline, dear friends, and I think being the camera guy in Vivid’s new sexual satire, “Happy Feet II,” would require less self-discipline (even if you’re not into feet).

    That, and “league” not “leave” imo.

  10. I don’t know why, but despite the hat thing I can’t get behind Pacella. I vote Alexander. He’s sort of just casually examining the work he’s done to a batter the way my dad would lean slightly forward and casually examine the engine of a car that wouldn’t start.
