  • 2008 All-Slob Team

    This afternoon, my friend and were watching the Met game and they showed both Prince Fielder and Eric Gagne. We noticed how they looked like slobs and thought, who else does? So we composed a roster from 2008 players of guys who look like slobs. Now, this is not intended to be offensive, it's just a joke.

    C: AJ Pierzynski
    1B: Prince Fielder
    2B: Ronnie Belliard
    3B: Miguel Cabrera
    SS: Edgar Rentera
    LF: Manny Ramirez
    CF: Andruw Jones
    RF: Carlos Lee
    DH: David Ortiz

    C: Johnny Estrada
    1B: Dmitri Young

    SP: C.C. Sabathia
    SP: Joba Chamberlain
    SP: Livan Hernandez
    SP: Bartolo Colon
    SP: Jon Lieber
    SP: Carlos Silva

    RP: Will Ohman
    RP: Justin Miller
    RP: Scott Eyre
    RP: Derrick Turnbow
    RP: Heath Bell
    SU: Jonathan Broxton
    CL: Eric Gagne

    Some of these are stretches. Like Edgar Renteria (very few SS look like slobs). Others are less so.

    Post your suggestions.

      He's pretty fat, pudgey looking, and wears a loose uniform. It's not a knock on his talent.

          Doesn't look fat to me. This picture was taking in spring training.



          Granted, he use to be fat, in High School...

            He still makes the cut.

            As for Santana, he looks great. This is about looks, not talent.

              Curt Schilling makes the list over Joba, not doubt.

                  If only David Wells was still around. How can you call Prince Fielder a slob, he's a vegetarian now.

                  Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.

                    He's on the DL and probably won't throw a pitch this season.

                    You take a look at him recently? He's still heavy and wearing parachute pants.

                      This topic is about players who look, well, less than slim, not players with bad teeth. Anyway, how about Carlos Silva, Johnny Estrada and Dmitri Young?

                      Honorable mentions from the past go to John Kruk, Babe Ruth, Terry Forster and, my all time favorite slob, Rich Garces.

                        As far as I'm aware, Rich Garces is the only player to have a bobble belly doll made of him. That's right. Bobble BELLY, not bobble HEAD. You can google it or, if you want one, there are a few for sale on eBay. I thought they were a scream.

                          They're worthy. The team needs some guys for the bench.

                            Sorry, I should have read your original post in its entireity. Bench players? Ryan Howard, Miguel Olivio, Carlos Ruiz, Ivan Rodriguez.
