  1. D jax is a good man! yo, didn’t Ms. CB used to dance at Cheerleaders? you’re a good man too Kyle, out there supporting strippers, look at you!!!

  2. Seriously. Way to go DJax and I agree, please pay him. Giving back to Philly, playing hard, mouth shut.. There’s a lot of young pro athletes that could learn from him and take some notes..

  3. Haha, sounded to me like Big Daddy called Kyle out for being a “merchandise snob”. I love DJax and his charitable donation to that family, but he needs to do something about that “beard” he’s working on. Not a good look, bro. Also, there’s not a better fielding CFer in the NL than Victorino. He often makes grabs that I think he has no chance at, and that’s with the shallow OF walls breathing down his neck.
