The fruits of monopoly: Topps needs Photoshop lessons

Leave a comment

Take some time to look at this new Cliff Lee card from Topps and tell me if you see anything wrong with it:
Cliff Lee card.pngAnd no, it’s not just the fact that he has never pitched a game for the Mariners. You figured they’d Photoshop that. It’s the poor job they did that irks. I mean, why would the Mariners be honoring Harry Kalas with a patch on the upper right side of their jerseys?

The Royals signed free agent reliever Justin Grimm to a one-year, $12.5 million deal, the club announced Sunday. Grimm can earn up to $300,000 in additional incentives, the specifics of which have yet to be disclosed.

The 29-year-old right-hander was released by the Cubs on Thursday. Prior to his release, he was slated to make $2.2 million after losing his arbitration case against the team. Grimm polished off a five-year campaign with the Cubs in 2017 and produced an unimpressive 5.53 ERA, 4.4 BB/9 and 9.6 SO/9 over 55 1/3 innings.

In a corresponding move, right-hander Sam Gaviglio was designated for assignment. He pitched in five games for the Royals this spring, racking up 13 hits, eight runs and seven strikeouts in seven innings.
