Unathlete of the Week Candidates

This week's slate of unathletes:

(1) Alfonso Soriano - In the two weeks since the ex-Ranger signed the biggest deal of the season, Soriano has been busy justifying that as the WORST deal of the off season; and that's difficult to do considering the Brinks truck the Giants delivered to their mediocre lefty Barry Zito. For the season, Soriano is slugging a Brad Ausmus-like .365, with no homers, 1 RBI and 1 stolen base. For added affect, Soriano strained a hamstring yesterday trying to make a play in centerfield.

(2) Ryan Gomes: After a recent loss that clinched the worst record in the East for the Celts, Mr. Gomes had this to say about why he wasn't out there for the fourth quarter: "I probably (would have played), but since we were in the hunt for a high draft pick, of course things are different. I understand that. Hopefully things get better. Now that we clinched at least having the second-most balls in the lottery, the last three games we'll see what happens. We'll see if we can go out and finish some games." Nice job Ryan, tanking was a lot more fun when players aren't outright admitting to it... Now you've blown Doc's cover!

My vote? Ryan Gomes
