Don't Hate The Game, Hate The Player

You know who I don't like? Nick Swisher, that's who. Some of the more observant regulars around here may have even noticed that I have been known to make some disparaging comments about him from time to time, some of which can be found (warning: if you are offended by coarse language you will not want to be clicking any of these links) here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here. There are more, but I think you get the idea.

Now I know that I'm not the only one who dislikes Swisher, but what I'm interested in finding out here are which other players some of you don't like. If you have a reason for your malice feel free to share. Perhaps you saw a player blow off a kid's autograph request. Perhaps you have an irrational hatred of a player who was signed as a utility player by your favorite team and when he was placed in center field it became painfully obvious that he did not belong there. Perhaps you just don't like the cut of a players' jib. Perhaps a player said something vile about your daughter.

Here are just a few of the players I don't care for to get things started.

 Brett Myers --- Wife beater, jackass.

Joba Chamberlain --- Hat, face, too screamy, on the Yankees.

Carlos Gomez --- Too prancy, always drawing for the vapors, plays inordinately well against the Sox.

Mike Sweeney --- Too jesus-y, always killed the White Sox. The only thing he did that I enjoyed was when he attacked.......

Jeff Weaver --- Does not have the "good face", seems like a real tool. (See him get body slammed by Sweeney here.)

Geovany Soto --- I suppose I could abide the frosted hair but the waxed eyebrows send me right over the edge. I find his minor league home run totals (in addition to his rookie season) extra suspicious.  Also, being on the Cubs certainly doesn't help.

Matt Holliday --- The shape of his jaw/skull and body give me the creeps.

Well, there you have it. Oh, there are plenty more players, past and present, that I could list, from Steve Garvey* to Manny Ramirez to Kenny Rogers to Dave Kingman.** I better not try to list them all though. I wouldn't want to leave anyone out.

 

So, who gets on your very last nerve? Who do you find yourself rooting against? Who do you think should pound sand? Bring it on. And FNS.
