Watch Big Papi watch Big Papi from the stands

David Ortiz made one pinch-hit appearance during the Red Sox's 5-4 win over the Yankees on Sunday night -- striking out on three pitches. The rest of the time he spent sitting in the dugout and, um, wait a second.

Nice try, buddy, but Big Papi doesn't have a soul patch (or whatever that thing is that connects the beard to the lips).

Still, we respect the effort and you definitely had some fans questioning what was happening ...
