While looking through my commons box last night for Florida Marlins I came across a stack of 2007 Bowman Heritage. While looking to pull Dan Uggla and Josh Willingham, I began finding one horrible Bowman Heritage Prospect card after another. This has led me to create the Top 5 worst faces of B.H.P. Keep in mind that this is not an insult to the player. This is just poking fun at the photo editor who should have his Photoshop license revoked.
5. Greg Reynolds – Colorado Rockies
This is not really bad at all but does anyone else think Greg is trying really hard to do his best Che Guevara impression? You know, at 6 foot 7 and weighing in at 220 lbs., I am not going to mess with the man. He can do whatever he likes, besides, he was a stud at AA in 2007 going 4-1 with a 1.42 E.R.A.
4. Luke Hochevar – Kansas City Royal
I don’t know about you but it sure looks like Luke is a little mortified by something just out of the camera’s eye. Do you think he might have seen a Boogie Monster? Luke is now in the big leagues with the Kansas City Royals and is currently 0-1.
3. J. R Towles – Houston Astros
This photo probably has nothing to do with J.R but more to do with a photo taken at the worst time possible. Why does it look like his left pupil has grown larger than the right one? J.R is struggling at the big league level while playing in Houston, hitting just .185 in 10 games.
2. Patrick Reilly – Los Angeles Angels
This photo is just unfortunate. Even worse is that Patrick is 25 and still stuck in A+ ball. If he can put up some big numbers you never know, a call to the show might be in his future. For some reason though, everytime I see this card I expect Pat to turn into this.
1. Chris Nowak – Tampa Bay Rays
Chris is seriously up to something. I mean, c’mon what’s with that shady smile? No one playing on the Rays or living in Tampa can be that happy, ever. I speak from experience, too. I had to go there to visit someone in the hospital in 2004 and the smog alone guarantees that sometime before his third birthday, my son will grow a third eye.
