#108: Brooks “Was Here” Kieschnick 1

Brooks Kieschnick’s career can be summed up thusly: He’s an outfielder! No, he’s a pinch-hitter! No, he’s a minor leaguer! No, he’s a pitcher! No, he sucks at everything! “That fastball was so hittable, I’m surprised I didn’t throw it.” Kieschnick was taken by the Cubs in the FIRST ROUND […]

You think you’re soooooo clever with this little site, huh? Well, you wouldn’t […]

#111: Rick “Rub Me the Right Way” Aguilera 1

Unless you count Chad Fox (and really, why would you?) you might be wondering how the Bottom 126 hasn’t included a closer to this point. You would be right to wonder, because the Cubs have had more than their share of closers who handed out runs like Pez dispensers–through their […]

#112: “Hanging” Chad Meyers 5

God damn you, Chad Meyers. You were so abysmal at baseball, there are no good pictures of you on the internet. I doubt you’re this Chad Meyers: And you don’t spell your name the same way as this terrifying Chad Myers: So, I’ll just put up a picture of Michael […]
