White Sox fans may remember he hit a walk off homer against you in 2006 that pretty much ended the wild card dreams of Chicago.

Boston didn't want him and for that matter neither did Tampa Bay

and then

The slugging Devil Rays first baseman hit 46 home runs, had 121 RBIs, walked 103 times, scored 99 runs, and had a slugging percentage of .627 while hitting .282 for the season. All of those marks, save for runs and batting average, set new Rays club records.

Texas, Oakland, and Detroit gave up on him too.

Tampa signed him to a minor league spring invite to see if he could backup Greg Norton. Yes, THE Greg Norton.

If he weren't on a last-place team he would get some MVP votes. Of course if he had those numbers with a last-place Cub team, he'd probably win the MVP.
