We made the request, you did the rest. Here's the great crop of Matt Cain Photoshops you sent in as part of Mizuno-fueled contest we ran on Big League Stew last week.

As we announced on our Facebook page on Tuesday, Scott Taylor (aka @fauxfrankwren) takes top honors for his "Star Wars"-inspired effort. Not only did we like the quality and pun usage, but we were also tickled by the planting of a few Easter eggs in the scene. Scott will take home one of the best prizes we've ever awarded — a Mizuno Pro Limited Edition glove autographed by Matt Cain himself.

We'd like to thank everyone who took the time to enter our contest. Check out our second- and third-place finishers below, as well as a few more great takes on Cain with his sword.
