Hey, kids, did you see the latest Sports Illustrated Player's Poll?
SI polled 318 MLB players: Who, not including a teammate, is the phoniest player in baseball?
1) Alex Rodriguez -Yankees (26.2%)
2) Nick Swisher - Yankees (13.9%)
3) Nyjer Morgan - Brewers (11.1%)
4) Brian Wilson - Giants (8.5%)
5) Brandon Phillips - Reds (4.6%)
6) A.J. Pierzynski - White Sox (2.9%)
A very good list. I would have substituted Ryan Braun for Nick Swisher.
If the question was, "Who is the douchiest player" - I would have gone with Pierzynski at #1.
The Angels beat the Athletics, today, 7-1 to complete a 3-game sweep of Oakland.
There was a very scary moment in the 4th inning when A's pitcher Brandon McCarthy was hit in the head by a comeback liner off the bat of Erick Aybar. McCarthy got up under his own power but was sent to the hospital. The A's said Wednesday night he was conscious and doing well, but doctors wanted him to stay overnight for further observation and he would not travel with the team to Seattle on Thursday.
