i'm not entirely satisfied with it, i believe the text is lacking (as usual), but i figured i could use some outside input.

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

I like the top one a little better. But not a fan of the background and the render looks a bit low quality. I've liked most of your sigs. This is definitely not your best... :-/

Yeah, the contrast on the background makes the text a bit hard to read. Also, the text is simple and clean, but the background is rough and grungy. There's got to be some reconciliation there or else it looks out of place. I like the general direction you're going with it, just take some time to refine it.
Rocinante2: you know
Rocinante2: its easy to dismiss the orioles as a bad team
ofanrex: go on
Rocinante2: i'm done
Rocinante2: lmao

I like the background, it's brown and orange 1970s style. ;-D
The thing that's not quite right is the pic of McCutchen, I can't quite put my finger on why. :-?
Maybe he's the wrong kind of contrast/render compared to the background :-S

Text is too big for me and not a big fan of the bg here.
