If The Twins Don't Want You, You Must Really Suck...
While it is obvious that there are certain former Twins who seem to have blossomed since they left the friendly confines of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome (Okay, we admit it, Big Papi is really good...sheez), there remains a plethora of one time Twins who seem to be having rough go of it lately.
As so eloquently shown above, one such Twin, former catcher A.J. Pierzynski, was not only on the receiving end of a Michael Barrett love-knuckle recently, he managed to look like a complete douche while doing it. (He looks so much like Bill Engvall, I keep expecting him to do one of those stupid "Here's Your Sign" routines the next time he hits a home run) And, to make matters worse for A.J., the next day Tim Kurkjian referred to him as "the most irritating man in baseball". Now, its one thing to get owned by a Cubs catcher, it's a whole other thing to get dissed by Timmy K.
And he's just one of many:
Jacque Jones- How's that signing working out for you Chicago? Which makes you more uncomfortable, his spastic fielding or that stupid look he always has on his face?
Matt LeCroy- As documented right here, he made Frank Robinson get weepy, and he appears to be taking throw-out lessons from Mackey Sasser.
Doug Mientkiewicz- He plays for the fucking Royals. We don't need to pick on this guy anymore.
Rick Aguilera- 3 Hall of Fame votes Ricky? That was one less than John Wetteland...
Bert Blyleven- Although he did get slightly more HOF votes than Ricky (277 to 3...) his recent broadcasting antics have relegated him to the same scrap heap as Rick Sutcliffe and Joe Namath. Although, in his defense, doesn't every dude on "American Idol" get lucky with Paula Abdul?
