I'm excited about this move and at the very least the Phillies seem to be embracing the analytical side of the game that has been previously embraced by so many teams. I'll admit though, it was weird making a custom baseball card for a dude who is (a) younger than me, (b) in a suit and (c) looks as if he could be working a few doors down from me in my office. For some reason, making fake baseball cards for actual players in their twenties and thirties is fine, but making a fake baseball card for Klentak felt weird.
I thought I should also post the Highlight card I made for manager Pete Mackanin upon the removal of his interim title. No one knows what the 2016 season has in store, but the two guys at the top of this post - Klentak and Mackanin - will be front and center.

In a strange but true move, Amaro, Jr. has been hired by the Boston Red Sox as their new first base coach. I guess he just wanted to be closer to Section 36?
