Baseball Nation: Cult Favorite Player: American League Central

Rooting for superstars is a no-brainer. As often as not, though, your favorite player emerges not from a pile of year-end awards, but from somewhere a little more special. We asked our bloggers to talk about their cult favorite players.
...
Ask a Tigers fan who their favorite “cult” player is and you’ll get a variety of answers — depending on their age and preferred type of player, of course. Some love Jim Walewander, so much so that he becomes their namesake on the Internet.

Jeez, what kind of loser would do that??
