I knew I would get the typical answers of Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter on the Sunday question. However, what struck me as funny as that another player popped up almost as frequently.
I'm with you guys because I listed him as one of the players I love to hate as well.
But what has David Eckstein ever done that has created such a disdain toward baseball fans?
According to his bio on Wikipedia, he's the X-Factor. In addition, he was voted "Most Helpful" by his high school class in 1993.
So what if the guy is listed at 5-foot-7, but is really 4-10. Is that reason enough to hate him?
So what if the was the 2006 World Series MVP in what was probably the most unwatchable World Series in history? It doesn't matter.
He's the X-Factor. He makes teams better. He wins World Series and gets to shop in the kid section!
