2011 Goose Joak Originals
First of all, I love Spring Training. Love, love, love it. It signals the end of winter, the start of baseball, the anticipation of fantasy baseball.
Two, this is my favorite time for making baseball cards. With apologies to the esteemed Night Owl, my favorite baseball cards are day shots. And Spring Training is full of them!
Three, I really enjoy this new 2011 Goose Joak Originals template. Simple, clean -- it feels like a breath of fresh air to me. I love doing my more complex stuff, don't get me wrong. But I love being able to find a great photo off the wire, pop it on a card, and toss it on the blog in under ten minutes. It's real time baseball card manufacturing!
Four -- I'm no sports psychologist, but you have to love Matt Kemp's body language this year. I'll go out on a limb and call him my dark horse MVP candidate. Actually, I'll go out on a limb and call him my non-Pujols MVP candidate.
