This has become my biggest pet peeve in sports. Look at K-Rod in this picture. You’d think he just found out there was going to be world peace. Why can’t everyone just do it like Mariano Rivera man? Seriously.

So on today’s docket we have closers who think they won the World Series after every single freekin’ game they save. What irritates me even more is closers have nothing to do with winning the game. The team hits to get a lead. The starting pitcher keeps the opposing team from scoring more runs. Then the closer just has to get three outs. WTF?!

Well, here are 5 guys I just LOVE to watch close games….

5. Francisco Rodriguez

Let me get this guy out of the way first because you knew he was coming. I hate this dude. Karma’s a bitch though. See what happens when you act like a jackass closing games. You get arrested for beating up your dad.

4. Rod Beck

Unfortunately, Rod Beck passed away far too early. He was a wild one though.

3. Jonathan Papelbon

As a whole, I don’t think there is a more annoying guy. Congrats Jon.

2. John Rocker

You can’t have a negative list about closers and not include Rocker. I really believe that he hammed it up because he knew everyone freekin’ hated him.

1. Jose Valverde

Lord have mercy. I hate this guy. Seriously. I’m not going to lie this entire post was spawned from my hatred of this guy. That is all.

There is no way you can have a list like this without including Brian Wilson … the Dennis Rodman of baseball … the bearded douche of the rosin bag … words simply can’t do justice for how tired his act has become.

Eh, he’s annoying but at least he’s funny.

How could anyone think Brian Wilson is annoying? That guy is funny as shit. I would maybe add Mitch Williams based on facial hair and equilibrium problems.

Rivera should be number one for being the best. It has to be annoying knowing when he comes in the game…It’s over!!!
