Raburn was second on my list. I never really cared for Valverde though. Like I said, if I saw him with any other team doing the crap he does before, during, and after he pitches I would want to punch him in the face...and I'm not a violent person.

For the Tribe I'm going with Jimenez. Dan O'Dowd should have gotten executive of the year for being able to dump him for 2 good prospects.

Favorite baseball team: Twins
Least favorite player: MATT CAPPS

GOSH! In 2011, he blew 4 saves in 4 straight games at home. We traded a top catching prospect for him. Good thing I think ether he is a free agent or we are trading him. And he dosen't care about his team just his money.

Favorite Football Team: Vikings
Least favorite player: Toby Gerhart

Why? He fumbeled 3 times in one quarter and he called himself better than Adrian Peterson on radio after a game!

Michael Young. Everyone always says he is a team first guy but all he ever does is demand to be traded everytime he doesn't get his way.

Such a tough call for the Mets:

1) Daniel Murphy, who's .280 singles bat led them to think they could move Tejada's .280 singles bat to short and replace Reyes.

2) Lucas Duda ... There is actual speculation that the Mets would trade Ike Davis for a second tier outfielder so this sad sack can play his "natural" position.

question for tiger fans... why do you hate Valverde so much? He's been a pretty good closer for a very long time.. he had one bad night?

Kevin Gregg once blew 6 games in a couple of weeks that knocked my marlins out of the playoffs and allowed the 2008 Phillies to win the division and then the WS...

Heath Bell might be the worst FA reliever in the history of baseball

Ask any Mets fan about Armando Benitez

Ask Phillies fans about Mitch Williams (now that's 1 save you can be PO'd about lol)

The guy is a good reliever.. had a bad night. It happens.. could be so much worse for you guys

LOL quote from my wife at the beginning of the year "Who is the F'in doucebag". Referring to Valverdes dyed beard/hair.

He has had more than 1 bad night. Even last year when he didn't blow a save he would always put guys on base and give you a scare. Plus would give up runs in non save situations. This year he has blown a few games.

But thank you for your input.

You must be pretty happy with Arod right now to not have picked him over Texeria LOL

As a Sox fan I've got to say Aceves, even though I know he's gone by far one of the biggest d-bags I've ever seen.

For me it is a combination of his antics, which I mentioned before, and the fact that almost every game was a heart attack waiting to happen. If you follow the Tigers you know that last year's "perfect" season was soooooooooo luck. He got bailed out many times or if he did do it himself it was with the based loaded and me sitting there with my hands over my eyes. He just drives me crazy. I have heard him after games and he seems like a nice guy, but just not my favorite....actually my least favorite.

Valverde has had a rough season beginning to end with an ERA pushing 4.00. I find his antics annoying when he is losing. He is a flavor of the moment because he got ripped last night. Detroit Sport Fans like their goats so there is a chance his image never recovers.

Great topic!

Chris Resop, Buccos. I have to turn the game off if they bring him in with a close lead.

What's funny about Aceves is before this year he had a career record of 24-3 with a sub 3.15 ERA.

EDIT: least favorite player?

Definitely not Lawrie!

Probably Yunel Escobar. Said and did some pretty crappy things, not too big a fan of his.

I'd say Ricky Romero based on the fact he's very streaky, but I love what he does for the community in Toronto. Tough to hate a guy for that.
