Brad Penny And Carl Pavano Are Eskimo Brothers

Here's little fun fact you may or may not know about Carl Pavano and Brady Penny, the pitchers squaring off against each other in tonight's Tigers/Twins game: they both dated actress and noted baseball aficionado Alyssa Milano.

Milano dated Pavano for less than a year in 2004 and Penny for less than a year in 2005 before moving on to Barry Zito.

Milano is a huge baseball fan and once said that she used to date so many baseball players because she believes in the saying "do what you love." Milano is a Dodgers fanatic and wrote a baseball book, which features one of the hottest passages ever written by a woman:

"Other women dream of papaya facials and mango pedicures. Give me a hot dog, a pitchers' duel and a late-inning suicide squeeze, and I melt like hot pine tar."

↵↵I'm not sure if Penny and Pavano ever pitched against one another before they dated Milano, but they have not matched up since -- let's hope it doesn't get weird.
