Jerry Remy in "Playgirl."

Surprising.

The Eck, in "Playgirl."

Surprising.

Not so much.

Baseball Prospectus posted a piece about several ballplayers who posed for "Playgirl" in the 1980s.

Among the notables, our own lovable Rem Dawg from July 1984.

Boston Barstool Sports posted the photo of Remy and raised it with a "Playgirl" photo from the same issue of Remy's NESN pre and post-game host, current Hall of Famer and former teammate, Dennis Eckersley

According to Eck's brief bio in the magazine, he was considered "tightfisted," at least when it came to giving up hits.

The folks at "Playgirl" Baseball Prospectus added their own faux scouting reports for each player it featured, listing Remy's position as an "INF/Sex God" and his abilities as "varied."

Among the other players photographed by "Playgirl" back in the day were George Brett, Danny Ford, Phil Garner and Rickey Henderson.

Nothing was available on Don Orsillo.
