We did that, so you won't have to.
Only 10 can make a top 10 we would be remiss if we didn't mention these fine ball players and all-star level swaggicians:
Melvin Upton, Jr., OF, Toronto Blue Jays
|The player formerly known as B.J. "Bossman Jr." Upton ain't soft now that he goes by Melvin. Adding the Jr. to your name is a trendy thing but not for Bossman. He'll still back hand a trick if he has to. |
Always has, always will.
Bryce Harper, OF, Washington Nationals
|Bryce had a tough year at the plate but he definitely didn't struggle in the hair and beard department.|
To be expected.
Jose Altuve, 2B, Houston Astros
|Baseball's Mighty Mouse.|
It doesn't matter that his teammates have to bend down to celebrate with him; the joy and grit in which he plays with is unmatched.
Jayson Werth, OF, Washington Nationals
|Classic lumberjack here.|
If Paul Bunyan and Jesus had a child, his name would be Jayson Werth.
Brett Lawrie, IF, Chicago White Sox
|Brett is already one of the most tatted players in the MLB, and has shown us a strong Oakley frame game over the years. But up the ante with a 'vampire fangs' mouthguard??|
Sure. Why not?
|Gold Cuban link chunk chain plus O'Shea Jackson scowl circa 1992.|
This man is a legend.
Javier Baez, 2B, Chicago Cubs
|It's pretty much mandatory that the swaggiest Puerto Rican player be on this team, and in 2016, Javy was that guy. The retro Jordan 1 custom cleats pictured here only made it a cinch.|
Brandon Crawford, SS, San Francisco Giants
|Classic Son's of Anarchy.|
Those black batting gloves he uses for clutch hitting are probably the same one's he uses to clutch the throttle on his Harley.
David Ortiz, DH, Boston Red Sox
|It's Papi's world and we're just living in it.|
Noah Syndergaard, P, New York Mets
|His nickname is Thor, and it's not just because of his Scandinavian features, and the fact that his fastball hammers the strike zone with the force of Mjölnir.|
Franciso Lindor, SS, Cleveland Indians
|Going with multiple rosary beads over multiple gold chains is a nice touch. Also, he is the first player in MLB history to still look cool while playing in stirrups.|
David Ross, C, Chicago Cubs
If manager Joe Maddon is the mad scientist alà Walter White, then David Ross is Mike Ehrmantrout.
Josh Donaldson, 3B, Toronto Blue Jays
|Classic country boy redneck.|
They should let Donaldson play in a mesh trucker hat and deer hunting camo.
He'd still hit 450-foot homers.
Johnny Cueto, P, San Francisco Giants
|Besides honing about 15 different deliveries, including the vaunted "shimmy", Cueto's dreadlocks and Bubble Yum game give him an heir of nonchalance on a scale that no mere mortal can even comprehend as attainable.|
Feel like someone got snubbed?
Feel free to admonish me in the comments.
Also any emerging candidates for next year leave in the comments. Might help with a preseason All-Swaggy team.
