We provided the picture of Melky Cabrera(notes) doing the devil horn salute.

You did the rest.

Big League Stew's email inbox received almost 100 entries for our first photoshop contest and we had a heck of a time whittling them down. The crop was so good, in fact, that not even this awesome Spider-Man effort from Mark Singletary — complete with Betty White on the scoreboard! — could break into our top-three prizewinners.

We had a panel of several Stew friends cast their votes and you'll find the winners below. The top-three entries will receive a print of their choice from Chris Speakman's Sports Propaganda series. (And a big BLS head nod to Chris for providing those prizes.)

But before we get to the lucky and talented triumvirate, let's review some of the strongest submissions that we received ...

Meanwhile, Clark Boatwright looks at Melky's season line — .267/.327/.374 — and makes a statement through a recently concluded popular culture staple.

Then again, Javier Vazquez(notes) hasn't had the best season since being swapped for Cabrera and Cheryl assumes that Melky probably appreciates this.

This one from Andrew Verchimak just slays me. Did he know there'd be a Halloween costume party when he decided to wear his Braves uniform into the bar?

Congratulations to all the winners, a very happy 26th birthday to Caberera himself (strange, right?) and a big BLS H/N for all those who took the time to participate.

We'll have to do this again, preferably sometime soon.
