My Top 5 Diamondbacks Cards
1. Eric Chavez (purple)
2. Nick Ahmed (rookie prospects)
3. Chris Owings (yellow)
4. Cliff Pennington (red)
5. Andy Marte (green)
It's a shame that the final team on the Quarry Unlimited countdown is arguably the most boring team set in the whole countdown. I apologize for that, but it is what it is. The Chavez is a decent choice at #1, both for the cool angle at third base and the fact that Chavez retired mid-season so this is his sunset issue. #'s 2, 3, and 4 are all different images of double plays. I like the Ahmed the best due to the side angle and the "all-dirt" look. The Owings is a very similar shot except from a front angle. Owings hanging onto the ball hurts the look just a bit. The Pennington has another unique look. Perhaps, Pennington could take some lessons from the other two on leaping over the runner though. I was really struggling to find #5, but I went with former top prospect Andy Marte. He was a big time "can't miss" Braves prospect that missed badly. He hadn't played in the majors since 2010, but I felt it was worth it to acknowledge his comeback attempt.
