  • AngelsWin.com's Charity of the Month

Players you can't stand, for no good reason.


Recommended Posts

For some reason, and I have absolutely no idea why, but I can't stand the MFY's Brett Gardner. Every time I see his face I feel compelled to poke him in the eye. And I'm not a violent man. 

He's not an Angel killer and I'm sure he's a nice guy that does charity work and loves his mum etc, but unless I have a primal fear of people with their eyes too close together then for no good reason whatsoever I just can't stand the guy.

(Sorry Brett, nothing personal, it's not you it's me.)

Needless to say this was VERY satisfying when it happened....

I've always disliked Seager, but because of this incident, I decided that there actually IS a good reason for it.  Same with Eric Hosmer. I would probably dislike him no matter what, but after hi

rougned odor. he has a stupid name. he wears shorts instead of pants. he's a smarmy little weasel. he had a stupid beard, one of those without a mustache, so it made him look even

Same with Eric Hosmer. I would probably dislike him no matter what, but after his antics during the 2014 ALDS, when he whooped and hollered like a high school cheerleader after every little thing the Royals did, there is definitely good reason for my disliking him. 

So I will go with Will Smith. His face reminds me of all the Mormon kids with whom I grew up playing basketball who never hesitated to throw a cheap elbow or knee you in the balls when the ref wasn't looking.

I never liked the guy and it's funny because he's been a good citizen and seems like a decent guy.  But he's got one of those faces where he always looks like he just got done smelling a fart...    So, when this happened..  LOL!

I think the players I don’t like it’s usually because of who they play for. The last guy I really despised was Dustin Pedroia. What a rat faced douche 

Same here, until he punked Fenway’s crappy infield surface and praised Angel Stadium’s.

All-time disliked player: 

Arse Jerk Pierzynski

I'm with @Inside Pitch. I can't stand Seager. He literally owns us in every single game I've attended up here, many that I've watched on TV as well. 

Screw that guy! 

I was at the game that Weaver threw at Seager and right behind the Angels dugout. It was one of the best things I've witnessed at a game aside of the Angels postseason games and Vlad's 9-RBI game.

I don't know how anyone can "hate" a player for "no good reason."  That being said...

Any player in pinstripes (Bernie Williams was the one exception).  Any player in a Red Sox uniform.  Any player in an Oakland A's uniform.  Any player in a Dodgers uniform (Mike Piazza and Clayton Kershaw are exceptions).

Brett Boone, Rougned Odor, Wade Boggs, A-Rod (because he killed the Angels), Lenny Dykstra, John Rocker, AJ Pierzynski (of course), Ian Kinsler, and I'm sure there are  others...

rougned odor.

he has a stupid name.

he wears shorts instead of pants.

he's a smarmy little weasel.

he had a stupid beard, one of those without a mustache, so it made him look even dooshier.

he spiked one of our players at second base a few years ago, and it appeared to be on purpose.

he's a punk.

p.s. apologies to the OG. it appears i have reasons.

In a small sample size of games (60). 

He was really good in 2018 and for 6 starts for 2021 so far. 

I don't see how anyone can call him mediocre. 

He's easily a top 5 -8 SP. 

 Degrom, Cole, and Glassnow I'd have  higher. Maybe Burness, Kershaw, Darvish, and Bieber. 

Can you name another 60 SP better to label him as mediocre please?

I have been following the Angels since 1961, so there have been quite a few players that I have formed a dislike for. But the all time worst for me was Jonathan Papelbon of the Red Sox. A Relief Pitcher that always dominated the Angels. But I'll always remember that 2009 play-off series when we had that infamous 9th inning rally against him and won the Division Series.

This asshat.  Hands down.  I hate Verlander.

Especially after the crying over Aybar’s bunt breaking up the no-hitter in 2011, never mind it was a close game.

Speaking of which, can’t forget this guy’s total douchebaggery upon homering off Weave in that same game.

Shame to have so much crying/douchebaggery in a game featuring the two best pitchers by far in the AL that season.
