Utley makes sense since he plays the game borderline dirty

I didn't really get the list. I understood some like Farnsworth, Zambrano, AJ, or Bradley. But guys like Arod, Utley, and Youk never struck me as overly mean. :shrug:

I guess they remember this even though it was back in 2004

If everyone who caused a brawl was on the list it seems like it would be a much longer list.

That's the only time I've seen Arod be mean on the field so thats why I posted it.

What has ARod done that demonstrates he's a meaner player than the average ball player? Guys like Farnsworth and Zambrano are brawls waiting to happen.

jd25213
09-14-2011, 09:31 PM
I guess it's the way he carrys himself. I mean someone who stays out of trouble is never seen, yet Arod sometimes has that big head and many people don't like him for it.

The way he carries himself? That doesn't make him mean. Stop complimenting him by calling him mean. He's a lowlife douche, and having a bad personality isn't the same thing as being mean.

There's a difference between fearing someone and hating someone. When you're mean, like AJ, people fear you. When you're a prissy characterless snake like A-Rod, people dislike you. So no A-Rod isn't mean, he's just a punk-***.

And the way he carries himself doesn't make him out to be mean (like a bully). The way he carries himself, it makes him out to be that high maintenance ***** that your friend is dating, and you have no idea why he's with her, because she treats him like ****, takes a lot of upkeep, and she doesn't even 'give him any', but at the same time you don't know what to say to your friend because you don't want to upset them.

I've never been the biggest ARod fan, but I do think he was humbled a lot by the steroid scandal. He's still going to be ARod, but he's been a good teammate and often reached out to younger players. While that doesn't mean he's not a douche, he is at least one with several sides, and from what I've seen, not one of those sides has been mean.

If Utley and Arod are on this list, it must be more of a 'Dirty" or "Bush league" list than a "mean" list.

If i look further am I gonna see 900 Farnsworth posts?

I wouldnt really consider Arod mean. More like this-

Exactly


My understanding of Utley's personality was always one of 'tough/mean/ready to fight'

Maybe that's not fair, but I know he has his edges.

Dude is beyond under-rated as a player though.

If the word "sneaky" is in there, then he isnt mean. Its more along the lines of bush league or dirty.

So if you think Utley is "Dirty" Give me some examples on how he is dirty? Please.

I remember him saying '**** you' to Yankee fans at the All-Star game when he was announced and they booed him and the camera man was right next to him and accidentally caught it.

Not that that incident means he is a 'dirty' player at all. Just a memory of him (which I don't blame either).

But he plays hard, I can't name instances of dirty play, I haven't watched him enough to really say.

I can say he is massively under-rated according to basically every level of statistics that measure him. It's incredible to be able to have possibly the most under rated second basemen playing right next to possibly the most over-rated first basemen.

The only thing I've really seen of Utley's personality was him on It's Always Sunny. He's always seemed pretty quiet on the field.

One guy that I'm a little surprised to not see is Chris Carpenter. I don't know if he's necessarily mean, but he's much more confrontational than some of the players on this poll.

Couldn't agree more.

Carp, and maybe Molina along with him.

I also noticed Pujols made the list I wonder if that to give Morgan ****?

The only one that surprised me is Jason Kendal. I've never heard any stores about him being mean.

None of that matters to me. Oh, he's a good teammate? Am I supposed to find that impressive? He's still the kind of guy that would never stop to sign a kid's autograph. And he's still guy who yelled 'MINE' when running from second to third base to make the Jays fielders stand back and let the ball drop. The guy is the furthest from a classy athlete as possible.

I'm sure at some point in the past 15 years he stopped for the autograph.

As for the "mine" thing, its cheap, but if a more well liked player did it people would call him clever.

I am not calling him a saint, or necessarily even a nice guy, but I've heard a lot of good stories about him in recent years that never get much play because they don't fit the Party Line A-Rod is a Douche story (much as I imagine there are bad stories about Jeter that get buried).

But that's ok. Fans seem to prefer their ballplayers to be cartoon characters and not real people.

Haha that was funny. MacDonald was dumb enough to fall for it but lets get pissed at A-Rod. A shortstop should never be called off, he gets to anything he can so by him falling for that makes him very very stupid. He fell for a little league play. Really though, nobody cares what a Blue Jays fan has to say. Anything Canada is irrelevant. :)

I never thought Utley was "mean". I respect his hard play. I also respect him as a person because I'm a huge animal/dog lover and so is he and his wife.

Look how mean Chase Utley is. He even has a Pitbull in the picture with him for the intimidation factor.
