With Lil' Sean gone, now full wrath can be heaped upon Destrada. Most players with Little League experience can better give insights into the game than the bespectaled Japanese baseball hero.

You wouldn't have any problem about forced ESPN Deportes cross-promotions if Adriana Monsalve is involved. Mercy! She's hot.
