Throw your hands in the air and follow the jump like you just don't care.

Jeff Karstens (2-3, 4.71) is a very ugly man. I mean, look at him. Now look at his pitch face. The eyebrows, the oddly proportioned face, the look of complete hideousness as he throws a baseball--it's a good thing he makes a good chunk of money, because with that ugly of a face, even being a (bad) major league pitcher isn't going to get him a girlfriend. He wasn't hit with an ugly stick, the whole tree fell on him.

Dave Bush (3-6, 4.23) is the same as ever. His middle name is Thomas. He lives in Devon-Berwyn, Pennsylvania (a city of 5,067, at the time of the 2000 census), where he grew up. Bush was often seen raising barns during his high school days. He was born on November 9, 1979. On that day, there was a nuclear scare as NORAD computers detected a soviet missile strike, which turned out to be wrong. Dave Bush isn't exactly what you would call "handsome", either.
