Albert Pujols signing with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim rocked the baseball world. Many called him a lucky man while others rightfully called him a sellout. But is he the biggest in baseball history?
Merriam-Webster defines the verb "sell out" as "to betray one's cause or associates especially for personal gain."
For personal gain—in baseball that usually has meant two things: a pursuit for more money or a quest to improve one's physique through illegal PEDs, chiefly steroids and HGH.
There's been a lot of money-grubbing and PED-usage in recent baseball history, so this list is full of color pictures and guys still alive and kicking. But make no mistake about it—these next 15 players are truly the biggest sellout in MLB history.
And don't worry, there's a few old-timers, too.
