Extra Innings Poll Results: You Hate Gonzalez More!

. Monday, July 21, 2008


The winner, in a manner of speaking

After a tense weekend poll that looked like it was heading into another tie, bumbling shortstop Alex Gonzalez snagged the title of most hated Cub of the last decade. In doing so, he beat out Todd Hundley, who loved the Cubs so much he flipped off the home fans. He also survived a late surge in the original poll from Hee-Seop Choi, who spent that infamous 2003 hitting .219. Choi finished his career with the Kia Tigers of the Korean League, where he went 0-5 in his first game. To me, however, what's most telling about Gonzalez's victory is that Mark "Pay Me More To Not Pitch" Prior came in the distant fourth. He's the most loved player of those offered, and that scares us.

Congratulations, Alex Buckner-Gonzalez. I hope this award warms the very heart that some Cubs fans have expressed the desire to stab.
