White Sox Photoshop Cards: Jose Contreras

Card #27 - Jose Contreras

Jose is one of the most dominant pitchers in the majors. Unfortunately, 2008 has been a down year for Contreras. This season was marred by inconsistency and injury. When he was healthy, Jose was lights out.

After a trip to the disabled list, Jose was the victim of a freak accident that put this season on hold indefinitely. His career is threatened by the injury as well. While covering first base on a play, Jose stepped wrong and injured his Achilles tendon. Hopefully, this wont be a career ending injury for Contreras.

I chose this photo of Jose because he looks so intimidating. You can definitely tell that he's focused in on getting the batter out. No visible emotion, just focus.

The filters make him seem to jump out from the background. His mound presence is definitely missed during the home stretch of September.
