I'm sick of these newfangled statheads trying to rate managers by their FSI (Facial Symmetry Index) or SORD (Swoons Over Replacement Dude). All I'm looking for is TWTM -- the Will to Manscape.

Never seen Craig on TV before. For a guy locked in his momma's basement, he comes off very well.

I'm partial to WAR...Wins Above Receding hairline.

Is that hWAR?

The fist-bump with Harold Reynolds at the end was one of my all time career highlights.

Nice job Craig, and the yes you earned that fist bump.

Craig's Scalp Above Hairline is almost up there with Gustavo Chacin.

Really cool, Craig. Good job on the moving picture machine!

A star is born.

CC fist-bumped HR? This is like finding out Hogan was the third member of the NWO.

Rating managers' handsomeness is a start, but what are the odds that MLBN will ask Craig to come on the show to offer legal thoughts regarding A-Rod and Biogenesis?

i don't know if i have ever talked before about the incredible HOTTTTTTTie mc HOTTTTTTTTstuff that is brad ausmus, but just in case i forgot to mention it, the list of the top 30 looks like this -

1 - bradley awesomeness

2-30 - some dudes

craig DOES come off great. lots of self confidence. wouldn't no other straight guy have mentioned on AIR that his gf saw brad ausmus, and took off after him. which i like totally get. because trust me on this i have seen him from like 10 feet away and it is really tough to not stare, moan, drool. let alone not following him, especially with your man right there.

i can tell yall true if brad ever looked right at me i would fer sher blush. and prolly swoon. just like BITGOD with grrrls and FRAN KIE!!!!! (or the beatles. or whoever)

I wasn't going to watch, but I did, and it was actually pretty funny. Craig does a great job.

The key is to increase the flame very slowly, so that Craig doesn't jump out of the pot.
   16. eric Posted: December 13, 2013 at 10:41 PM (#4617769)
That was definitely well worth watching. Great job, Craig.

Harold Reynolds was ####### hilarious here.

Harold Reynolds was ####### hilarious here.

It's pretty much why I cut him so much slack. And he clearly has a man-crush on Craig. Great clip.
