Bash Brothers - Mark McGuire and Jose Canseco in their Oakland A's days. Probably not 2 bigger dbags than these two, but in my preteen brain the nickname was cool, they hit the ball a ton, and this was before we knew about the needles.

I thought that was more by fans. The interviews I've heard during that time were mostly Staalsy.


Colby Armstrong called him The Gronk, which I think started the nickname.

I don't think I have an opinion on a favorite. But I do have plenty of contenders for least favorite.

Joey Bats

Grilled Cheese
Jay-Bay

Pretty much any Greg Brown product.
