MLB Knuckleheads of the Week

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterSeptember 3, 2013

There is something so refreshing about MLB knuckleheadery.

This week in “Things that were amazingly dumb,” we take a look at Brandon Phillips’ tirade and a certain Dodgers trade for an over-the-hill Michael Young.  

Join MLB Lead Writer Zachary Rymer and MLB Contributor Gabe Zaldivar as they point out the moments that were unfortunate and only slightly hilarious.

Phillips went above and beyond to belittle a reporter for tweeting out his on-base percentage, and we have thoughts. Fortunately, you don’t have to bleep out our own rant.

We also opine on Ned Colletti and his apparent need to have every last name on the open market in a Dodgers uniform, even when that player seems not to fit the team’s plan.

Of course, we need your help. Go ahead and vote for the bigger dunderhead in the comments section below or offer your own. We love to live vicariously through other people’s gaffes.
