Ugly Round of 32 - Vote, Dangit

We've reached the Round of 32 in the Red Cardboard Ugstavaganza. Only the purest of the heinous remain. Get excited. Your gorgeous auto refractors and your gem mint vintage have no place here. Exute, fanciful relics and serials! We've only time for grotesqueries!

Here be the first half of the match-ups. Vote for the ugliest. Voting ends Wednesday at noon eastern.

Go Reds (and Go Bucks, while I'm at it).

  1. That Robinson-Latos match-up is impossibly hard. They're basically the same card!

    1. No way. It's the Robinson and it's not even close. In fact, I'll make a bold prediction that Robinson and Pete Rose will square off in the final four. That Rose is hideous.

    2. Based on my voting, you could say I'm....Latos intolerant?

      Thank you very much.
