#1 Barry Bonds. CHEATER. Speaks of himself in the third person, can change a light bulb by himself as long as the world revolves around him, not above using his children as rhetorical devices when needed, is alleged to have refused an autograph on racial reasons. Oh and I almost forgot he has more foreign male hormones in blood stream than Monica Lewinsky's dress.
#2 Manny Ramirez. SLACKER. While he's not as big a jerk as Bonds, (who is?) he is maddening when in his own words he is "Manny being Manny" which is to say be a gifted slugger who trots down to first, daydreams in the outfield, sits out important games in a funk and generally gives the impression that he has something more important to do. Here's a tip numbnuts you get paid a billion dollars a day for playing a child's game how about some bleeding effort? Take a look at David Ekstein, you have 30 times the talent but he plays the game better than you do.
#3 Pete Rose. GAMBLER/WHINER. The anti Manny, Charlie Hustle. Pete Rose is probably in the top five ball players of all time, but he gambled on baseball. He knows it, we know it. But instead of a genuine mea culpa, he parses it thinner than a Bill Clinton definition of "is". Come clean you low life, it's your only chance. And Pete, buy hats lots and lots of hats, never take one off.
#4 Terrell Owens. DISRUPTOR. I hate football so I don't much care how he affects the Eagles, but this guy is the working definition of asshat. Yeah he's good. So was Lou Gehrig but he didn't find it necessary to criticize his, team, team mates, organization, town, state, country , planet.... Talk about a prima donna, I hope he's flipping burgers in two years so he can appreciate how good he once had it.
#5 Roger Clemens. WEASEL. The Sports Guy says why: http://yanks-suck.com/story12.php
