I wouldn't have taken Granderson out for any reason other than that I acquired a player who is head and shoulders better than he is. Verlander will get ROY votes. Granderson won't. Verlander is a lock for All Star Game appearances. Granderson isn't.

here is your updated sig but...

i cannot give you the same background effect coz i did not save the original PS file and 2nd, i can't remember how i applied the brushes and the blending.

Just a tip for next time. When making multiple player sigs, try to get it so all the players are the same quality in terms of picture pixels... It just kinda looks wierd cuz Kazmir is the only one with good quality.

thanks for the comments - i appreciate the advice.

it's hard really to get good quality when the orig pics are small and then you have to shrink them furthermore. And as the size is reduced, the pic gets blurred and the sharpening effect doesnt help much.

and when you have 3-4 players taken from different sources, kinda hard to get them all in same color hues.

and then another constraint is the 10K limit. If you optimize a 70K image to 10K, expect to lose some quality.

I think this is the best I could find that fits with the other two pitcher images. I love the other 3 pics as is (except maybe sharper/higher res, which you said would happen with a less colorful background), so I wanted to find a pic of Verlander that matched them.

I found better ones, but they are at wireimage and too small.
