A Lovable Loser

As much as it pains me to say it, Juan Pierre may be my favorite player in all of baseball (I'm so going to get in trouble for this!) But seriously, this guy is a throwback. Let's move to the visual evidence:

Not just socks, but actual stirrups people!

The close-up

And he's the only player in the majors to wear his cap under his batting helmet.

Plus, did I mention he's from Birmingham? You didn't see that coming did you.
I mean, a guy named Juan Pierre is a man of the world, no?
But see, the name fun doesn't stop there. His full name is Juan D'Vaughn Pierre.
It rhymes!

And, you know, he's got 37 stolen bases...
