[There was a time in this site’s history that I used to love to create a bunch of random crap. Writing about the Cubs is, to me, a great deal of fun – but randomly photoshopping things tangentially-related to the Cubs is even more fun. Doing so is time-consuming, though, and, in the last year, as the site has evolved and the coverage has grown, the time I had available to doodle was reduced. I still do an occasional Blackout Cubbetry, or suggest that few, if any, should mess with DeJesus. And I’ll never stop doing the Enhanced Box Scores.
One thing I did very early on in the site’s life was a thing called “Garfield Minus Garfield Plus.” If you know what Garfield Minus Garfield is, then you get the gag – if you don’t, you are doing yourself a criminal disservice. Check it out: http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/. You can read up more on why I started modifying the Garfield modifications in the first place here.
It occurred to me recently that many newer readers had probably never seen one of these things (heck, many of you probably have never seen an Enhanced Box Score, one of my favorite things to do ’round these parts during the season), so I went digging and found a few that I created, but never published.
So, I figured, what the heck – I’ll toss one out there, and maybe the ball rolling again on this kind of thing (which, yes, I know, is not everyone’s cup of tea).]
Presenting, Garfield Minus Garfield Plus Gamboa:
(For background on “Gamboa,” see here. This season will feature the 10th anniversary of that infamous moment in White Sox history.)
