Michael Barrett 8 C

Top Five Michael Barrett Highlights of 2006:

5. Never once catching any single object that Greg Maddux threw all year. We heard it was a terrible prank that Mad Dog pulled where he would pretend like he was throwing Barrett the ball but he would pull it back on some string before it got there. Our inside source tells us Greg would pull the string trick on Barrett at dinner with condiments and when waiting at airports with snacks. Michael always laughed along with everyone else but deep down he felt like Maddux never truly appreciated Michael Barrett.

4. Hitting .307

3. Intrascrotal Hematoma. I had absolutely no idea where they came up with this "medical term", was completely terrified to even look it up and now I am incredibly sorry I did. Currently I am unable to leave my home without wearing a cup. I liked it much better when I thought it was an infectious disease he picked up while punching AJ Pierzynski. The grunts here at TFB discovered that "Intrascrotal Hematoma" is the perfect excuse to get a month or more off work. After a short intro and optional slide show it is guaranteed that your supervisor will never ask you another health question ever again.

2. Non-Apology to AJ Pierzynski When pressed by reporters, Barrett said "It is never justified to hit another player -- well unless that player just doesn't know when to shut the hell up."

1. Punching AJ Pierzynski (we were just going to have this as his "Top One" Moment, then decided to do a "Top Ten".... but "Top Five" was just more realistic).
