Kevin Youkilis!  We'll let Rusty Griswold handle this one: "Oink, oink my good man!"

This photo was taken shortly after Varitek realized that Boras cost him 12 mil by telling him to decline arbitration — in his divorce
year.  And is his goatee in HD?  We won't blame you for trying to shave your screen.

Why couldn't Papelbon just be his joyful self, like last Easter?

There isn't a grounds crew in all of baseball that can touch the mowing skills of Big Papi.

Paul Shaffer would never allow his lookalike to be this depressed, unless he were telling members of Spinal Tap to literally kick his ass.  Someone get this guy a Casio keyboard.

Giambi's deflated arm used to have veins that looked like small snakes were trapped under his skin.  He doesn't seem too happy about the new look.  That or he failed to pee on the newspapers and knows he's in deep shit.  Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to the post-steroids era!

    Giambi looks like he stayed out all night at a strip club and is afraid his wife could walk in the door to the photoshoot at any minute!

    im thinking the pirates should go along with the royals and make a beefcake calendar of their own. what have they got to lose except their nonexistant dignity?

    Nonexistent dignity and the money they put up to shoot the calendar.

    can you imagine what a pirates beefcake calendar might look like? besides, everyone knows that the pirates are the worst team in the NL central, if not baseball in general. its not like anyone will notice or care
