55. Curt Schilling...
I don't hate him, but it sure was annoying for him to break up the symbolic beauty of a Massachusetts team winning the WS right before the '04 election by saying, "I hope people vote Bush on Tuesday." What a killjoy.

But I assume most baseball players (who actually care about politics) are conservative. As a die-hard Blue Jays fan, I am torn over Greg Zaun, one of my favorite players but also a wingnut.

One exception is Carlos Delgado. He used to be my favorite player (and still is one of them) yet he politely refused to stand on the field during the ad nauseum propagandizing of "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch.
