In the Times today SI ran a poll amongst players "Which major-leaguer would you most like to see beaned?" AJ was the big winner.

AJ-18%
Bonds- 14%
Pedro Martinez- 6%

According to the poll they said AJ received 42% of the vote in the AL Central LOL even gathering 5 votes from his own teammates (in Jest)

Why? Because AJ knows how to play the game and is a very hard-nosed player? I'm glad we have him on our team.

This was in the Tribune today, too. I say "Big deal". Its no secret that AJ isn't going to win an popularity contests anytime soon. AJ gets under the skin of the competition, that's why we love him and they hate him. I'm sure AJ is loving this.

The reason guys want AJ to be banned is that no one wants to play against him.

The reason guys want Barriods to be banned is that he's a cheater, a liar, and a horrible teammate.

Big, big difference.

Above all else, AJ knows how to play the game. He makes others look bad when he exploits their mistakes. The list of those he's made look stupid grows: Escobar...Paul...now Barrett.

They may want the cheaters "banned" but it was a pole for who should get beaned....hbp.

Second that! And I think the fact that such a poll was even taken is stupid and shows poor taste on the part of the media. Although that last part should surprise no one....

According to a story in the newspapers today the numbers are slighty skewed. Five Sox players admitted they voted for A.J. as a joke.

I'm sure many players picked AJ as a joke (Twins, etc.).

OK, I read the post a bit clumsily... well, my post's meaning still comes through; why does the league want AJ to get hit? Because he's a hard-nosed player who you absolutely hate to play against...

Bonds, on the other hard, cheated his way to 2nd place on the all-time HR list. He is hit because his head became huge and his bat is laced with lies.

Beaned, banned, it's probably the same people either way...
