Honorable Mention- A.J. Pierzynski
Many polls, including a 2012 Men’s Journal poll, have labeled Pierzynski the Most Hated Player in Baseball. This is a poll that will show a new winner soon but in the meantime there is no dispute for lack of love for Pierzynski. How does he feel about winning the awards? Heck, just ask him and he will tell you.
“I just laugh at it,’’ he said. “I think it’s cool. I’ve won it a bunch of years in a row. They just change the title around. They change a couple of words.’’
