It doesn't bother you that Escobar likes to put derogatory remarks on his eyeblack or that Atlanta dumped him after those .800 OPS seasons because of attitude and effort issues?
It doesn't bother you that Colby Rasmus' dad is a micromanager who is openly critical of coaching in the media? Or that he has a career AVG of .243?
Personally, I want nothing to do with either of them
