    I think what’s more disturbing is the way he’s manhandling Ruiz.

      That’s the type of photo that would get a guy kicked out of the military…

        Not anymore.

        he could always be “In the Navy..”

      I was gonna say. Seriously, his FACE is the first thing you noticed about that picture?

    Ruiz: You’re excited? Feel these nipples!
    Papelbon: OK!

    I’d much rather be rescued at sea by Chooch than Pap.

    Ya, I think Craig is missing what is truly hilarious about this pic.
    He’s got Ruiz bent over, fully cupping each breast….the face is just the cherry on top

    It’s official: I’m never sleeping again.

      Clown will eat you?

    Papelbon has the moneyshot face

    • tbird05 - May 29, 2014 at 2:26 PM

      So does the guy behind him.

    Between this picture and the Rick Reilly love letter to Jeter’s hypothetical future children, I feel like there are a million bugs crawling on my skin.

    That’s the face and position for my last home run too!

  9. lukedunphysscienceproject - May 29, 2014 at 11:18 AM

    I’m pretty sure Paplebon makes that face when he toast pops up in the morning.

    I’m pretty sure Paplebon makes that face when his toast pops up in the morning.

    Well now. Isn’t that disturbing. Those crazy Phillies sure know how to celebrate on the field.

  12. eagles512 - May 29, 2014 at 11:39 AM

    Hilarious

  13. tridecagon - May 29, 2014 at 11:53 AM

    The more I look, the funnier it gets. This is gold.

  14. janessa31888 - May 29, 2014 at 12:52 PM

    He has such a creepy zombie expression. Just like on his baseball card last year. /shudders

    I want to know how Carlos found time to play ball and star on That ’70s Show for all those years:

  16. phillyguyindc - May 29, 2014 at 3:16 PM

    Aside from the paps face and grabbing another guys breast.. wtf is the guy behind papelbon doing??

    • tbird05 - May 29, 2014 at 3:52 PM

      We call this running a train. Dare I say…TOOT TOOT!
