Every year, baseball hands out awards for the top pitcher, rookie and MVP. But what baseball player deserves an award for the wildest name? And what player needs a haircut and a little zit cream? These guys didn't hit the most homers or steal the most bases but they still deserve an award.

Worst Groomed Player Award
Randy Johnson has won four Cy Young Awards and a World Series MVP award but he's most proud of winning the 2001 Worst Groomed Player Award. Randy has a string bean frame, a trailer park mullet and acne scars that make the moon's surface look smoother than a baby's butt. Keep throwing that 100 mile per hour fastball, Randy, but cut the hair and try one of those avocado facials.

Players Most Likely to Be Found on a Wilderness Hike Award
You won't find any of these guys at the top of the homerun or strikeouts list - but you may run into them if you go for a walk through the woods.
Doug Creek, Andy Fox, Jason Bere, Randy Wolf, Kerry Wood, Tim Salmon and Torii Hunter.

Fattest Slob Award
This award goes to Calvin Pickering who is baseball's heaviest player. He weighs 285 pounds which means he's almost twice as heavy as Oakland shortstop, Oscar Salazar, who weighs just 150 pounds. Calvin says his hobbies are working out and swimming which means he enjoys pushing donuts towards his face while bathing in a tub of bacon fat. Homer Simpson would be proud.

Biggest Swing With No Ding Award.
Jose Fernandez of the Milwaukee Brewers struck out 185 times in 2001 - four off the major league record. He had just 135 hits and 25 homeruns. He's all swing, no ding.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
