Jeff Karstens (our favorite MLB pitcher who looks exactly like 70s TV hunk Randolph Mantooth mid-sneeze) is back! After a disappointing return from the disabled list last week against the Phillies, The River Wizard bounced back yesterday afternoon in St. Louis with a quality start (7 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 7 K) in the Pirates’ 7-3 win. ‘Twas a gorious Karstivus indeed.
More important than Karstens’ line from yesterday’s game, is that his DERP—which we’d feared had begun to regress—appears to be as strong as it ever was (as evidenced in picture #3, in which he looks like a youthful Gene Simmons shitting a watermelon covered in sandpaper).
Jeff Karstens’ face is back, you guys.
This is the fourteenth installment in our ongoing tribute to him. And his face.
(GOT SLIDSESHOW? CLIK IN TEH PITCHER OF JEF F KARSTIN FOR ON!)
