Pic of the Week

Serving the ball up on a platter --
or a hand brace.
Shortly after position players report, teams have "photo day" at their spring training camps, and a variety of photographers spend the morning taking photos and video. The mugs I sometimes attach to posts come from the AP and were taken on photo day.

Beside basic face shots, AP also moves posed shots of the player doing something -- holding a bat, flipping a ball in the air, taking his stance. These shots are probably of limited use to most newspapers.

Then there's post-surgical Ervin Santana doing this, probably in lieu of showing off his slider grip or something of that ilk.
