The guys at—filling your athletes partying with co-eds photo needs since 2006—recently leaked a music demo San Francisco Giants pitcher Barry Zito had been shopping around to labels in an effort to get a record deal.

Here, take a listen for yourself.

Hoo boy. You can just feel...feel...feel...feel his heat.

As Simon Cowell himself might say, "Dreadful, Barry. You're like someone doing a bad impersonation of bad John Mayer karaoke. You should sue your voice coach (but be sure to keep that agent)."

The "hit" single has been spreading like wildfire in baseball clubhouses throughout America, for all the wrong reasons.

That got me to thinking: what is the worst music ever produced by an athlete so self-deluded that he or she thought it was actually a good career move?

Well, this is already well-trod ground by one fellow Bleacher creature and ESPN Page 2 and Sports Pickle columnist DJ Gallo, as well as former ESPN contributor Peter Schrager.

No one has tackled the awful results when athletes decide to produce a full-length album, though.

I humbly accept the duty of parsing through the worst music collections athletes have ever committed to audio and am not so proud to present my results.

As Mayer himself once sang, girls become lovers who turn into mothers.
