Brad Penny, the portly pitcher who is known more for his prowess with the ladies – he’s dated Eliza Dushku and Alyssa Milano – than success on the mound, has hooked himself another famous female: Karina Smirnoff, who isn’t the heir to the vodka fortune, but is a dancer. Another Karina Smirnoff fun fact: She got engaged to a guy she dated for six months, and then broke it off in September. Here’s video of Penny and Smirnoff at some club in Los Angeles hooking up.Penny even started last year’s All-Star Game and struck out the side.

Penny was 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA against the Phils last year, and last night, they were just another hot mess.
