Hunt and Peck: Special Matt Carpenter Edition

Eye black is good for two things: Intimidation and lookin' sexy - Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Marp.

He runs the back of a calloused hand across his forehead

A hand that has endured the beatings of splintering bats against its naked flesh

A hand rough and abused from years of neglect

Yet gentle enough to meticulously apply the perfect amount of under eye black

And guide misplaced pitches into outfield gaps

MATTHEW MARTIN CARPENTER:

Reaction around the Web...

Non Carpenter News...

  • The Cardinals have also signed Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz, the person Joe has been fan-girling over for the past several weeks (Exhibit A and Exhibit B). Contract details were not available at publish time and by that I mean it is 1:25am and I have no details and will not be able to update this before it goes live at 10:30am. - Viva el Birdos
