New Design

New look to the site. Inspiration courtesy of Dinged Corners and 1970 Topps wax packs. Hope you like it!

Here are some Goose Joak Originals to commemorate the new look. With the new background on the website, you can finally see that these cards have borders! This is good. In my opinion, and in the words of The Dude, "it really ties the (card) together."

  1. I like the new look. It's great!

    Had fun at the game tonight. It was great to meet you and your wife.

    Did you see all of the Royals roster moves? That is quite a turnover. I don't see the point in sending Hochevar down. With the way he pitched there to start the year, it doesn't seem like there is a whole lot more that he can learn in AAA. Oh well.

  2. Thanks Zach! Yeah, we had a great time as well. The game was fun, we enjoyed meeting the three of you. You were so nice and enjoyable to be around. I'm really glad we did it.

    Regarding the Royals...I'm with you. At least it's good to see Aviles hit the DL with suck disease. Good for him. Hopefully that gives him time to heal whatever minor injuries he has and get his head straigthened out. And in that regard I guess it makes sense to bring Tug up. He's been hitting the ball pretty well and can figure into a L/R platoon at SS if that's where Trey goes with it.

    Oh, and I agree, pretty strange that they'd send Hochevar down, especially after his best outing. He's not striking anybody out but his ground ball rates are really good, and like you say, what's left for him in AAA? Unless they want to work with him on something specific it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense.

  3. Nice new look, and it's good to see the white borders of the inaugural Goose Joak set!

  4. Whoever told you that is a genius. The cards really do pop out better when you can see the border.
