I took 16 of baseball’s brawniest, ruggedest, and steroidiest meatheads and put them in a fantasy fistfighting tournament to have you vote on the winner.
I also included Frank Thomas. Not because I think he ever took steroids, but because I thought he has a chance to win this cleanly, so it would only be fair to include him.
The rules are straight forward- no weapons and no having your crazy friends jump in and help. The fighters should be judged upon their fighting prowess while in their athletic/ fighting prime, and not, for instance, how they’d fare in a fistfight today. Also, I didn’t bother to assign seeds to this tournament. Voting ends in one week and the next round will begin immediately after.
Here are the 8 first round match ups:
Barry Bonds vs. Mark McGwire
Jason Giambi vs. Jose Canseco
Juan Gonzalez vs. Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez
Lenny Dykstra vs. Roger Clemens
Andy Pettitte vs. Mike Piazza
Rafael Palmiero vs. Frank Thomas
A-Rod vs. Sammy Sosa
Gary Sheffield vs. Mo Vaughn
