Men's Journal poll of MLB players: Guillen not respected; A.J. Pierzynski is hated, and Joba is the most overrated

Men's Journal's July issue, on stands today, includes a SI like poll of MLB players.

Most hated player in baseball: A.J. Pierzynski followed by Arod and Nick Swisher. "(Pierzynski) likes to talk a lot of shit, and I’ve heard he’s a bad teammate,” one National League pitcher tells Men’s Journal. “He’s been a prick to guys on his own pitching staff. Basically, if you haven’t got five years in the big leagues, he treats you like you’re a peasant. He’s that kind of guy.”

“Everything about (Swisher) is annoying, from his mannerisms to his always wanting to ‘bro’ it down,” an unnamed American League veteran told the magazine. “Being around him is just exhausting.”

Non teammate you'd like to play with: Albert Pujols, Derek Jeter, Dustin Pedroia.

Underrated player: Rangers Michal Young. "He gets screwed over by his own organization," said one of the players in the survey. He's followed by Shin-Soo Choo, Ian Kennedy, and Howie Kendrick.

Best physical shape: Marlin Giancarlo Stanton. "He's a real-life Under Armour mannequin," says one player. "He's not normal, not human." Mike Francesa: "He's sculpted!"

Worst physical shape: LA Dodger Todd Coffey. "Have you seen him running in from the bullpen?" says a division rival. "He has bigger boobs than half the girls I've dated."
