NL West, the Bitchiest Division

From the latest issue of Sports Illustrated:


Who is the friendliest player in baseball?
Sean Casey, Tigers 1B 46%
Jim Thome, White Sox DH 7%
Mike Sweeney, Royals DH 7%
Dave Roberts, Giants CF 4%
David Ortiz, Red Sox DH 4%

Who is the least friendly?
Barry Bonds, Giants LF 26%
Jeff Kent, Dodgers 2B 20%
A.J. Pierzynski, White Sox C 13%
Alex Rodriguez, Yankees 3B 12%
Randy Johnson, D-Backs P 4%

FAST FACTS: Players were not allowed to vote for a teammate....No pitcher finished among the top 10 in the "friendliest" vote....Among NL West players, Kent (31.3%) outpolled Bonds (13.6%) as "least friendly."

That may be so, but the mug of Barry Bonds staring at me from the cover of this week's SI is keeping me from picking up and reading this issue. I may just use it to line my birdcage instead.

Line your birdcage with that. Your bird won't poop for a week.

Nah, he just might have diarrhea.

I'm surprised Clemens didn't make least friendly list

I heard Kent being interviewed on TJ's radio show a while back and he seemed like a good guy to me. He's just misunderstood because of the mustache.

Steve Sax said...

Hey, there's no misunderstanding. That mustache is (was) awful.

Friendliness is next to godliness, right? Wait, maybe I have that wrong...
