Alive? Dead? Sleeping? You be the judge! (Picture via Getty Images)
I know he's not actually the manager of the team anymore, but he's an institution down there, and I still can't stand him. When he wasn't arguing some pointless call he didn't like and getting ejected (or beating up on his beloved wife), I was mostly convinced he was dead in the dugout. Did anyone ever see him move? I'd say it would have been fun to see Cox and McKeon manage opposite each other in a battle of the old guys, but spry, energetic McKeon is the obvious winner -- and he's 10 years older than Bobby Cox.
This picture is in contention for douchiest picture of all time, if there were such a contest.

This appears to be Chipper's most recent school picture. I think he should have chosen the laser background instead. (Picture via www.outdoorchannel.com)
I could go on and on for days. He is my most hated baseball player of all time, eclipsing everyone who has come before and anyone who will follow him. He is a 39-year-old baseball player who calls himself Chipper. That alone is more than enough reason to hate him. He has a fauxhawk, which just screams "I'm a rapidly aging baseball player on a team of more talented younger guys who I can't relate to!!" He can't keep his mouth shut to the press, whether he's insulting all umpires (and then taking it back), or calling out one of his teammates for not playing while he's hurt. Good old Chipper always plays when he's hurt, and he thinks he's a hero for it. That's why at age 39 his body is breaking down like that of a 70 year old. So why not encourage a talented young baseball player to do the same, instead of taking care of himself? He had an 18 month extra-marital affair with a Hooters waitress that resulted in a love child. He named one of his children Shea, because of all the success he had at Shea Stadium. That's just...good God, what a douche.
