Jim Edmonds, I absolutely hate him enough never to draft him. I wish injury on the guy every year. He jogs to ball so he can dive and fool most people. He stares down pitchers when they throw in. He is a huge whiner. I just hate the guy. It doesnt hurt that Im a huge cubs fan and dont like the cardinals in general.

Really surprised to see all the AROD answers! Seems like the media paints a flattering picture of him BUT HE IS A TYPICAL PRIMA DONA.

MLB had cancelled about a weeks worth of games, right after the attacks of 9/11 when our country was mourning and then coming together. I had a relative that drove him and some other Rangers to Vegas from Bakersfield in his limo. AROD and crew stiffed him...actually they did leave a few souvenirs........like some tall cups of urine stashed in the passenger section in back.

Classy Guy!

Yes. He had a problem with fans booing in KC, so he took it out on the fans for being a bunch of morons.

He said something like there is no place in baseball for that. KC baseball fans don't get on our own players unless they really deserve it (unlike in NY, Boston etc)

As a Giants fan, we hate Jeff Kent and all Dodgers. Jeff Kent is simply a sourpuss. He couldn't handle that he wasn't the best player or even liked by Giants fans.

A few years ago I really began disliking Sammy Sosa. It was ever since the Home Run Derby at Miller Park I think. All the players were joking with each other, but SAmmy totally seperated himself. He wouldn't shake hands with any of the other participants and was just acting like an arrogant ass.
Sexson was coming out of the batter's box and put his hand out as Sammy was on his way up, and Sammy walked right past him. His antics this past year did nothing to change my opinion.

good all cannon - I know I cant stand Sosa either. I think it was his softball video game that really did it for me though. :-P
