Blez over at Athletics Nation got this whole thing off with his Most Despicable Team column.
Position by position, can you name your MDT... Most Despicable Team? Here is mine:
A.J. Pierszynski - Still an easy call.
Lyle Overbay - This is more because of a lousy Fantasy Baseball decision of mine a few seasons ago, but resentments are resentments.
Jeff Kent - C'mon, seriously, do you know anyone who likes this guy? Ever seen anyone wearing a Kent jersey?
Eric Chavez - A Stone Cold Loser
Derek Jeter - Hillary Clinton could take notes from this self-obsessed spin doctor who specializes in charismatically attracting apologists and shifting any blame that should get too near.
Milton Bradley - Shaddup.
Jim Edmonds - The Angels missed out on the playoffs in 1998 because of Jimmie Showboat. Kiss My Ass, Diamond Bar.
Jose Guillen - A pig, or as my cleaning lady would say "¡COCINO!"
David Ortiz - Take the armor off, take the juice out and you have a gap-toothed Double-A strikeout king.
Vicente Padilla - His utter gutlessness separates him from the pack.
Ozzie Guillen - Would it not be awesome to deny him liquor for a week and then watch him pathetically hunched-over in the dugout tortured by the shakes, sweats and delerium tremens that a far-gone alcoholic like him suffers through during a dry spell? Imagine the post-game press conference comments!
