I was reading a Reds forum and they had a thread on who they disliked the most in baseball. So, who are your least favorite players in Major League Baseball and why?

Mine are:
-Brandon Phillips, because he has so called 'SWAG'.
-Ryan Braun, not only because he cheated, but because he lied about it.
-Bryce Harper, because he just seems like he thinks he is above the game.
-Aroldis Chapman... I used to like him, but he throws at people for no reason.
-Carlos Gomez, because he is insane.
-Manny Machado, because he seems like a diva.
-David Ortiz, because he has started to become a big baby that thinks he is entitled to everything.

A lot of people hate Yadier Molina but I just can't seem to do it. The dude is just a flat out player.
Yasiel Puig is borderline for me. The one thing that makes me not hate him is that I know I would love him if he played for the Pirates. However, I would still dislike the others above even if they played in Pittsburgh.

1. Braun - Cheated, lied, and we seem to play him 54 times each year
2. Ortiz - Entitlement, hate the DH, hate the Sawks, would rather have stats than wins
3. Chapman - high and tight
4. Alex Gordon - I've never seen a player look so bored

Chapman, Braun, Phillips, Gomez, Delgado/Montero, and I'm probably half a step away from hating Burnett at this point.

I hate Balfour and Lackey. Balfour for his act and Lackey for douching to a nuclear degree, yelling at somebody else every time he gets rocked. He's like the Philip Rivers of MLB.

I'd hate Hughes more if he weren't a Bucco.

I don't hate anyone -- life's too short -- but I do like Machado. And I see a lot of him, what with my Oriole - loving father-in-law (that and being here in Os territory).

The question wasn't who you hate.... the question was who your least favorite players are.

There are several Reds that always seem to kill us. Our pitchers don't seem to do a bad job on Phillips, Votto, and Bruce, but Mesaroco, Heisey, and Fraser always seem to beat us. Yeah, screw Heisey. I don't have a problem with Mesaroco's and Fraser's success against us, because they hit against everyone. Heisey seems to save all of his production for the Bucs. Bucco killers- a topic for another thread. But, in keeping with the original thread,

I don't know why, other than the fact that he is a Red Sox player, but I can't stand Dustin Pedroia. Maybe it's the nose, I don't know. He just has an arrogant look about him.

All tied for most disliked in my opinion:

David Ortiz- A Cheater and Feels He's Better Than The Game Itself

Ryan Braun- Cheater (Twice That We Know Of) And Ruined A Man's Reputation Doing His Job

Carlos Gomez- Feels He's Better Than The Game

Aroldis Chapman- Headhunter. If I Had The Resources, I'd have his 'girlfriend' at every game at PNC with seats out near the bullpen and behind home plate.

That's not on Jeter though, that's 100% ESPN's fault.

ESPN is the YES network. As in YES we'll show the Yankees every night if we can.

Used to bug me. But not anymore. ESPN is a national network, and let's face it, the Yanks and BoSox are pretty much national franchises. Like Notre Dame in football. And those fans are rabid. I know far too many Yankees fans who really know nothing about baseball other than Yankees.
