Opposing O's player/players you hated most

Recommended Posts

Bert Campaneris...for some reason I had extremely unkind thoughts about that little peckerhead...used to drive us nuts back in the day. 

Thurman Munsen...used to kill us hitting line drives all over the yard...never clean shaven and his uniform didn't quite fit right...reminded me of Pigpen

Derek Jeter...ol' Jackknife Jeter...damn Yankee.

I totally hated Alomar as a Blue Jay but then was happy when we got him, and was ambivalent after that. 
 

I also hated Duane Ward even though he was barely worth hating, so you can guess what era I grew up in.

Nick Swisher.

I once heard Fred Manfra call him “Nick Switcher, the swish-hitter.”    Pretty sure it was an accident.

Nothing about baseball has made me smile as much as when I watch the video of Joey Bats getting punched by Rougned Odor. His antics, and his outstanding hitting against us, made him my most-hated player for several years.

I know so many folks who say it's hard to dislike Jeter, but I got so tired of him getting borderline calls and him faking like a ball was close inside. Let's just say I hated that about him. 

Top of the list:

Bautista

Big Papi was sort of in the same category as Jeter. Probably likable if he was your guy, but his complaining about inside pitching grew tiresome fast. Especially when O's pitchers would be ejected for something Sox pitchers started. Was really happy to see Kevin Gregg stand up for himself vs. Papi several years ago.

Papelbon anyone?

I’m conflicted on A Rod, as I actually enjoy him post-playing days. He isn’t very good as a color analyst, but his pre/post game work is good and I really enjoy his podcast plus feel he is much more honest than most when he is a guest.

For me, the only saving grace of losing to the Jays in 2016 WC, it wasn't Bautista that did us in.  I would have vomited if that happened.
