Napkin Doon's favorite player. I don't know why I tease Nap about loving Hank Blalock. I just do. I don't think he liked him at all, in fact. But he was actually a very promising player early in his career. Hank, along with ARod and Mark Teixeira, were going to form one of the most potent line-ups for years to come. He was a two-time All-star at ages 22 and 23. In 2003, he hit one of the most memorable All-Star HRs in a long time, taking Eric Gange deep in the 8th inning and propelling the AL to a victory. He had one of the more awesome fan clubs in pro sports called "Hank's Homies." Come on, that's great. Sadly, when Hank should have been having his most productive years, his numbers quickly trailed off, mostly because of a series of injuries. He retired in 2010 at the age of 29 with a lifetime average of .269 and 153 HRs.
