2014 Spirit Base: 451-460
#451 - Randall Delgado
Not a fan of Arizona's black jerseys or hats.
#452 - Craig Kimbrel
Since Delgado got the leaning forward/hanging arm pose that's Kimbrel's signature, here's a subdued post-save fist pump.
#453 - Matt Wieters
Since you won't find him on any Topps cards I figured it would be good to show a clear shot of his face. Maybe collectors outside of Baltimore will be able to remember what he looks like.
#454 - Craig Breslow
If you squint just right, his forearm looks like he has a huge chin.
#455 - Emilio Bonifacio
One of the most fun names to pronounce.
#456 - Jose Abreu
Well I guess he lived up to the hype.
#457 - Chris Heisey
Great shot with the hand-operated scoreboard in the background.
#458 - Danny Salazar
Salazar's had a decent 2014. Corey Kluber's emergence has probably tempered expectations for him a bit.
#459 - Drew Stubbs
Stubbs is having a bit of a comeback season, posting an OPS over .800 for the first time in his career.
#460 - Justin Verlander
Conversely, this is Verlander's worst season since he became an elite pitcher. Who would've thought he'd be the 4th- or 5th-best starter on the Tigers before this season started?
