2014 Spirit Base: 241-250

Well since Topps has Series 2 on the shelves now, I figure I better finish up Series 1 here.

#241 - Cliff Pennington

Can't say I'm a big fan of the Diamondbacks' black jerseys.

#242 - Jordan Walden
Walden's missed a lot of time the past couple seasons so the photo options weren't very numerous.

#243 - Steve Pearce
The dusk lighting looks a little weird here.

#244 - Jonny Gomes
Look at that nicely trimmed beard. It's so very un-vomit-enducing.

#245 - Jake Arrieta
I was in the middle of writing this post when I got an MLB.com update about Arrieta's perfect game and held off on posting. In other words, sorry about the jinx, Jake.

#246 - Gordon Beckham
I had to use this dugout shot of Beckham. There are only so many action poses to chose from.

#247 - Sean Marshall
#248 - Nick Hagadone

Like these two lanky relief pitchers. Probably the least exciting back-to-back sequence of Series 1.

#249 - Michael Cuddyer
The sun and sky make this shot pretty cool.

#250 - Al Alburquerque
This is the first time I've really looked at the Qs in this name font. Basically just Os with little wedges on them.
