So, you've promoted your minor league pitcher to the big club. Congratulations! Welcome to the big leagues, Tyler Cloyd.
Shoot, we have nothing to use as a picture for the website? Hmm…we have a picture of him from Reading…
But never could they feature him with a minor league cap! Oh, and it has to be a studio picture… no way could they snap a picture of actual Cloyd anytime between his August 29th and September 18th, right?
Better get out the crayons. Er, Photoshop. The end result was this hideous photoshop edit:
My best calculation is that that Phillies "P" that goes from the brim to the button (which is the wrong color, by the way – on red Phillies caps it is blue), would have to be about 4 1/2 inches on a hat Cloyd would be wearing. A standard "P" on a Phillies hat is about two inches.
This reminds me of back in the day when TheFightins.com posted this Cliff Lee photoshop into a Mariners uniform where they left the "HK" patch from his 2009 Phillies uniform:
I then went through my 2010 Topps Opening Day cards since I purchased a box in search of the ace that the Phillies acquired and found this card, which I sent to Meech:
At least these two are worse.
