A little piece of friendly advice. Quit reading bleacher report. Just move your mouse over to the bookmark, right click, and then hit delete.


You can thank me later. :-)

Most of those guys are just older players with clear adherent risk of recession. Why does that make them a clubhouse cancer? I wouldn't call Carl Pavano a cancer just because he could be prone to injury or decline in performance, that seems ridiculous to me. Ramirez and Guillen seem right for other reasons, but I find it hard to justify putting those other guys on the list.

This. It would actually be an interesting topic if somebody who knew what they were doing was writing it. I applaud the effort to get a unique topic started but Bleacher Report is not the place to link us to. ;-D

Andy Pettitte is a clubhouse cancer? :-?

I enjoyed the end of this article. Because it linked me to another article which was actually a worthwhile read.

MLB Trades: Power Ranking the 50 Biggest Rip-Offs in League History

It looks like a good deal of research and thought went into this one.
