New Rule: You Make The Yankees Look Bad, You Get A TSR Custom Card

This past weekend the Yankees and Marlins played in Panama… Not Panama City, FL;  PANAMA.  Land of Mariano Rivera.  The place with the canal.  That Panama.

The series in Panama was intended to be a Yankee Love Fest and featured Rivera throwing out the first pitch and being the general center of attention.There was just one hitch.

On Saturday, the Yankees got no-hit by four Marlins pitchers.

Sure, it’s an exhibition game.  Yes, both teams were split squad.  I don’t care.  Jeter played.  So did Beltran, Gardner and Soriano.  None of them got hits.  Nobody in pinstripes got a hit.  I am happy.

I’m so happy that I’ve created custom cards of the four Marlins pitchers who did this glorious deed… and I’ve also established an additional way of picking who will appear on my custom cards.

Brad Hand was perfect for 5 innings and struck out 6.
2014 TSR #4 Brad Hand
Hand is out of options this year, and you’d have to think this helps his chances of sticking with the team.

…And I know at least some of you are thinking this: “Aloha, Mr. Hand”.

Steve Cishek pitched an inning, struck out one, walked one.
2014 TSR #83 Steve Cishek
Last year, Steve Cishek lead the NL with 62 games finished, and was 6th with 34 saves.

A.J. Ramos pitched two innings with one walk.
2014 TSR #111 AJ Ramos
Like Cishek, it doesn’t look like Ramos has to worry about having a job in Miami.

Arquimedes Caminero – who instantly shoots up to the Top Ten Great Names In The Majors – pitched the 9th and struck out a batter.
2014 TSR #56 Arquimedes Caminero
Caminero’s full name is Arquimedes Euclides Caminero… and yes, he was named after Greek mathematicians Archimedes and Euclid. It’s just a shame that I didn’t get to write this guy on the recently-passed “Pi Day” (3/14).


Now that I’ve featured five Marlins on TSR customs, I think we’ll have to take a breather from that team… unless some Marlin forces my hand again.

I’ll be back later in the week with some guys from other teams… Promise.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody!
