As we noted yesterday, pitchers and catchers report on Valentine's Day.
So, here's a "Happy Pitchers and Catchers Report Day" card you can send to someone rather than a Valentine's Cay card, if you want.
Never done this before, so I hope it comes out okay.
You'll have to:
1) Print it out - it's designed to work with 8.5 x 11 paper.
2) Follow the instructions on the back - it's a simple two fold card, and when you're done folding it'll be
4 1/8 x 5 1/2... I think you can get envelopes that size should you want to send a couple around.
If it looks crappy when you print it out (I can't post too-giant of a file), send me an email and I'll send you a pdf.
The art was done originally for Vine Line last year, but it's maybe a little better as a card.
Tomorrow I'll have some more, only maybe not so complex with the folding and stuff.
I just ask that nobody take this art and use it for profit.
I used to make t-shirts, and it's so depressing when you see someone's stolen your design.
Makes you want to not do it any more.
Okay, what's going on in baseball?
A-Rod in the news with the positive steroid test results.
I've got enough guys I already have grown to dislike not so much for the taking of steroids, but for lying about it, so... whatEVER, A-Rod.
If the Feds ask you questions about it though, don't lie.
I spent some time yesterday looking at the depth charts of some of the teams on their MLB sites.
For the Cubs, go here.
See the blank space under Aramis Ramirez' name?
The Cubs have no back-up at third?
That's weird, although the Cards don't have a listed backup for Albert Pujols either.
Aaron Miles is listed as #1 at second, and I thought that would read "Fontenot".
So, probably not supposed to pay much attention to that thing right now, but it's interesting that they list what looks like a decision at second, yet not even a prospect (or Miles) listed behind Aramis.
Like they thought about second, but not third.
Probably it's just some guy from MLB with a computer who does that stuff.
Okay, it's still pretty warm out today.
I shall now go wash a couple weeks worth of salt off my car.
