I'm curious - who's the worst hitter in baseball?

I'm curious - who's the worst hitter in baseball? 


I was just curious what the consensus was on this board.  You get one vote -- who's the worst hitter in MLB?  You can base it off whatever you want.  Strikeouts, plate discipline, lack of fundamentals, high strikeout rate, whatever.  But you only get one.

Man, if last year is any indication he might be. 

For now, I'll go Cesar Izturis.  I would rather see Stetson Allie at bat for us in a crucial situation than Izturis. 

But Barmes is starting to catch up.wink

I'd guess Wandy Rodriguez.

I was going to say me.  I haven't been able to hit a baseball in years.  It's embarrassing, really.

Is Aki Iwamura still around? If he is, he gets my vote.
