2014 Spirit Base Series 1: 101-110

#101 - Jonathan Villar
On MLB: The Show 13, I played a franchise as the Astros for a few years and got really frustrated by Villar. He kept teetering on the edge of potential but could never really make an impact, even on a crappy team with lots of playing time. We'll see if he can do better in real life.

#102 - Alex Gordon
Anytime I can use a semi-close up of something "unusual" happening, I'm gonna. I'm already struggling to keep things from getting stale and redundant. So here's a goofy shot of Gordon tossing his plate armor off.

#103 - Garrett Richards
This image would be perfect for a Panini release. Shouldn't be too hard to airbrush the sleeve and cap logos off.

#104 - Adrian Gonzalez
I always thought Gonzalez was kind of bland and mild-mannered. But going through the photo options, there seems to be a lot of images where he's pointing or gesticulating or something. I guess it's the Dodger Way.

#105 - Adeiny Hechavarria
I'm starting to realize I should have switched the blue and orange colors for the Marlins template. There's basically zero blue represented on their uniforms and it really clashes with the design.

#106 - Scooter Gennett

#107 - Chris Parmelee
The Twins roster is filled with guys of which I have absolutely no knowledge. Sorry, Twins fans.

#108 - Travis d'Arnaud
Too bad this name font doesn't have any lowercase characters for the stencil style. It's really bugging me to see that capital D there.

#109 - C.C. Sabathia
Sabahtia's pretzel limbs are just too weird not to share with the world. Cropping his lower body probably adds to the confusion as well. Awesome.

#110 - Eric Sogard
Is this Sogard? Or Orel Hershiser wearing a crappy disguise out on the diamond?
