Fun Cards: 2018 TWJ Scooter Gennett
The Reds went on an absolute tear this past week, winning six straight games and catching the attention of awards-giver-outers. Second baseman Scooter Gennett was named the NL Player of the Week for May 7-13, hitting .591 with four homers and 10 RBI. I decided to resurrect this design I toyed with earlier this year. It’s kind of a pain to outline the player, so it won’t be used often.
Of course, I prefer the textured look, so I also blasted this with a little sandstone filter:
The Reds’ bullpen was also honored this week. The bullpen that I have been criticizing all year combined for a 0.95 ERA and struck out 32 batters from May 7-13.
I still don’t like relief pitchers.
