If you've have the pleasure of following the Talking Chop Open Threads in recent weeks, you've witnessed the new favorite hobby of Smoltz's Beard and myself, among others: poorly photoshopping Braves players' heads on random objects. This trend first arose in tribute to The-Ender-of-Worlds-That-Is-Troy-Glaus (patent pending), and has expanded to include such Braves stalwarts as Melky, Medlen, Kawakami, and this gorgeous creation that first appeared last night. But then I thought, why stop there? Why shouldn't I put Chipper's head on a javelina or make Lowe into Glenda the Good Witch of the North?
After the jump, a full roster of poorly photoshopped Braves players.
The 25 players represented here are what I guess I would consider the Braves' optimum 25-man roster, removing injuries. That is to say, Diaz and Jurrjens are included, and Venters is in while Jo-Jo languishes somewhere else. Some of these are better than others, but in any case I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed creating them. You are also welcome to submit your own hack job photoshops in the comments. Enjoy.
Tim gets in touch with his ancestors by donning the clothes of noted explorer Henry Hudson. I believe Timmy pulls off the flea collar look flawlessly.
Yunel becomes my favorite character from the now-defunct series Nip/Tuck, Yunel Escobar Gallardo
Infante = infant. Pretty clever, eh?
I love the Irish.
Mr. Plow, that's his name. That name again, is Mr. Plow.
When the Fraggles need advice or stellar production from the catcher position, they visit the wise Mac Heap.
That quote about that Free Willy song was pretty good.
Jesse 'Cesar' Chavez is boycotting grapes. I wish he would boycott giving up runs, but hey, at least he stands for something.
Here's hoping Melky keeps up his recent success and I create a prettier Melky Way image.
I could definitely see Petey as a boxing kangaroo in a former life.
Why it's our good friend, Crabs Medallion!
Brad Pitt wishes he had Glaus's body.
Tommy takes a spin as Chris Hansen. I think this would be particularly useful after one of Tommy's many strikeouts.
Rossie the Riveter! *This image is to be kept away from Chip Caray, for fear of fisting implications.
McClouth? McLeod? McLouth? McCloud? Yeah, that's it, Nate McCloud.
Credit for this idea goes to a hooter's baby, who suggested last night that Takashi swing the bat like a Hattori Hanzo sword.
He may be a little small, but he can do great things (walk-off grand slam, anyone?) Brooks is Mighty Mouse.
KK has a message for his teammates:
Enter Sandman, indeed.
'Dean' Martin Prado and the rest of the gang.
Truth, Justice, and the American way.
Grandpa? Old Man? Affinity for Hooters waitresses? Chipper Jones is Dick Vitale?
Jonny is a Venters-loquist (but he's no dummy).
Staples guy reads the stat line for a DLW.
And lest we forget the faithful leader of this bunch of ragtag rogues. Bobby is the Skipper.
Have a good Memorial Day weekend everyone! I'll be out of town, so hopefully we'll need some apprentice Rainbow Llamasaurus wranglers to celebrate a sweep of the Pirates.
