Who are those players that you hate to see in the game or might even hate they are even a part of the team? Who are those players from the past the you love seeing on other teams because they can no longer hurt your own?
This is a list of my Least Favorite of this season
My Top 5 Least Favorite:
1.) Frenchy: It's great to see him free swinging on another team. It was great seeing him last week against the braves with 1 out, bases loaded, and swings at the first 3 pitches for a K. It's great to no longer have to watch that every season.
2.) Greg Norton: I don't know if this is his fault or bobby cox fault. Every time he comes in for a pinch hit at bat with runners on in a tight game you can count it up as a K. He has been awful this year and I'm not sure why he wasn't released.
3.) Mike Gonzalez: He has a nice looking ERA, but to many times this year he has come in with a one run lead in the 8th and given up a solo shot to tie the game. I remember earlier in the year we were playing the phillies, he came in and gave up back to back solo shots for the phillies to take a one run lead. Lucky for us we came back and won that game, but he is a disaster waiting to happen every time he comes in. I get annoyed with his rocking back and forth too. I think it is a reason why he can't locate his pitches.
4.) Jojo Reyes/ Many Acosta: This one was a tie. Jojo Reyes was terrible at the beginning of the year. If we had instead of him for those starts we might have a few more wins. Jojo Reyes was a definite lose every time you saw his name coming up in the rotation. Manny Acosta is a classic case of a pitcher who thinks he can throw his fastball by everyone. This is the majors and these guys can hit the heat so you have to try something else.
5.) Kelly Johnson: This is another case where it is more Bobby Cox fault than KJ's. He was in the lineup for too long. He was struggling and bobby kept putting him out there and he continued to struggle. He was terrible with runners on and hitting in key situations. He tries to pull the ball way to much and it often looks like he's trying to hit homeruns therefore he pops up a lot. He is just a consistently inconsistent player.
