  1. What’s wrong with his eye black? It’s kind of bad ass.

    I think the Nats (or MLB) already said that he cannot wear it though. Don’t know why…

    I would think that it would be kasten taking the creampie from Rizzo, because he’s kind of a bitch.

  2. Ditto: That eye black is about the only thing would make Landry’s dick-ups even more badass.

    How come every time I see a photo of Kasten, I know exactly what the child conceived from a turtle raping Mr. Magoo would look like? (not to be confused with a turtle-raping Mr. Magoo)
