2014 Spirit Base Series 1: 171-180
#171 - Carlos Ruiz
Chooch missed a lot of the 2013 season so the photo options weren't the best. Hopefully this isn't too unflattering.
#172 - Josh Harrison
Those shades almost look fake.
#173 - Carlos Martinez
Hopefully Baby Pedro has a good start so this won't be the first thing people think of when they hear his name. That memorable follow-through should help, too.
#174 - Yasmani Grandal
It's always cool to get a shot of a catcher in full gear, especially when he's ready to throw and you can see his eyes through the mask.
#175 - Gregor Blanco
The White Shark's kinda getting a raw deal with the Giants' outfield. As much as I'd like to see him get more playing time in 2014, odds are it would come at the expense of someone getting injured and I sure don't want that to happen.
#176 - Kyle Seager
I look for Seager to get some attention this year with the new Mariners' lineup. He's been pretty solid the last two years.
#177 - Jose Molina
This is a pretty cool shot but what's Joey Fatone doing in the Rays dugout?
#178 - Martin Perez
Boy, the Rangers need him to really come through this year. Their pitching staff is literally hurting.
#179 - J.A. Happ
By far the Happ-iest card in the set. (sorry)
#180 - Adam LaRoche
Another nice out of the batter's box pose. The daytime lighting is perfect as well.
