Jason Heyward Tribute #10

Looking at my last few Heyward posts, I’m starting to realize that I sound like an asshole. So, for those of you wondering if I am an asshole or not …

Sometimes I am. Sorry.

Jason Heyward Tribute #9

Look at that smile. How could those idiots question his love for the game? (Actually, if you ever find yourself questioning whether a player loves the game or not, you should just shut up. Chance are you don’t know what you are talking about. And yes, it is possible to leave a team for more money and still love the game of baseball.)

Man, I’m a cranky ass lately.

Jason Heyward Tribute #8

There’s a certain group of Braves fans that love to question whether Jason Heyward plays the game with joy or not. I think the most obvious perpetrator of this stupidity is Macon’s Bill Shanks. This group roughly matches up with the group of Braves fans that are deeply stupid. That’s not a small number of people. Unfortunately. Sure, every fan base has their morons, but the Braves just seem even dumber than the others.

I know, this is just a stupid rant and I’m cranky today anyway. Ttat said, check out the kid jumping for joy on the card below. How can you possibly question his love of the game?

The Great Tim Hudson #36

Here’s the single best baseball card released in 2012. I won’t “Wax poetic” about it again, but be prepared to look at different versions of it every day for the next two weeks.

Jason Heyward Tribute #7

I just realized that the thick enclosures I use to house many of my auto cards make the scans look like crap. Again, I’m far too lazy to do anything different. Either way, I don’t have many Heyward autograph cards to go before I hit his regular cards where the scans will be VASTLY superior.

So, is 2010 Topps 206 any less boring with gold borders? Nope.

Jason Heyward Tribute #6

Look, I’d be happy to have every Jason Heyward autograph card in existence. That said, this is not a nice card. In fact, it is BORING to the extreme. That makes it typical of all the Bowman sets not named Heritage. I miss Bowman Heritage. Bowman Platinum is nothing but shiny … uh … nothingness.
