SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond 6-10
November 23rd, 2009 by slangon

The second batch is ready for your perusal.

#6 Jack Cust, Oakland Athletics

06HODI really love this shot of Jack. Who doesn’t love when players give the ump that look? Say Whaaaaa?

#7 Ryan Howard, Philadelphia Phillies

07HODAs a Mets fan, I really hate the Phillies. There’s a bunch of dudes on that team that I especially hate on a personal level, which is ridiculous, I know. How can you hate someone you’ve never even met? I don’t question how these things happen. I just know they do. This guy, however, I do not hate.

#8 Andrew Bailey, Oakland Athletics

08HODThis dude first came to my attention at the All-Star break. I normally don’t pay much attention to the American League until about September, especially the AL West. When Bailey made the All-Star team, though, I read somewhere that he had gone to the same college as my sister-in-law. I’ve been sort of rooting for him ever since. I was pretty glad that the got the ROY.

#9 Tim Lincecum, San Francisco Giants

09HODI guess the best man doesn’t always win, eh? I wonder if Michael Phelps is mad that he didn’t win the Cy Young.

#10 Gordon Beckham, Chicago White Sox

10HODThis slot was initially supposed to be Jim Thome, but trades happen. I suppose that un-officially makes this a 2010 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond Update card. Looks like Gordon is saying “Kiss my a$$, Thome. I’m on the card now.”
