Champs & Chumps - The Minnesota Twins and Rey Ordonez

In sports, there are always teams and players who rise to greatness and perform their best under pressure... these are the champs. There are also teams and players who fold under pressure or who don't show enough energy or desire to win big games... these are the chumps.

For example, The LA Lakers and the Williams sisters are usually always champs, while the LA Clippers and Phil Mickelson are almost always chumps.

Tell Kidzworld what you think about this week's sports chumps and champs then vote in our online poll above.

The Champs
The Chump
The Minnesota Twins won the American League's Central Division in 2002.
Rey Ordonez of the New York Mets doesn't like fans who boo.

The Champs - Minnesota Twins
It was just a few months ago that Major League Baseball wanted to get rid of the Minnesota Twins because MLB didn't think the team had enough cash or fan support to make it worth keeping them around. The Twins responded by winning the American League's Central Divison in 2002 and winning the opening game of the Division Series against the Oakland A's on October 1st. It was their first playoff victory since 1991. The Twins are an exicting team that doesn't have a bunch of overpaid chumps - like most other teams in baseball. If they win the World Series, it'll show the rest of the league that money doesn't always buy a championship.

The Chump - Rey Ordonez
After making a career high 19 errors while playing for the last place New York Mets in 2002, shortstop Rey Ordonez showed absolute chumtivity with his comments about fans who boo the team. "The fans here are too stupid," said Ray. "You have to play perfect every game. You can't make an error. You can't go 0-for-4. Are we like machines?" No Rey, you're not like machines - you're like millionaire athletes who get paid a lot of money. So when fans pay money to watch chumps like you drop balls, overthrow bases and finish in last place, they get a little upset. Fans aren't stupid for booing overpaid athletes who play like crap. However, Rey Ordonez is a definite chump for calling New York fans stupid.
