I hate Carlos Silva and I hope he gets ass cancer

Not that you didn't already know that.

Larry LaRue has the "big" story on Silva, as the man seemingly gained close to 30 pounds over the course of the season.

Let that sink in for a moment. A baseball player, spending upwards of six months playing almost daily in a grueling schedule, somehow managed to gain 30 pounds.

How bad was El Gordo this year? Let me count the ways:

--5.92 tRA, good for 16th-worst in the league.

--blamed his shitty pitching on injuries and bad defense (the latter part is actually somewhat true, what with Yuni air-mailing throws into the stands, but still.)

--threatened to throw teammates into the wall, which is exactly the quality you want in a clubhouse leader, because real leaders scream and cuss and threaten teammates with physical violence.

--gained nearly 30 pounds.

And the best part of all this? He's still owed $36 million over the next three years. Bill Bavasi, this is your legacy.

Bring me Solo and the Wookie! They will all pay for this outrage!
