The Biogenesis Five

Ok, ok, just so we're clear: Two former MVPs -- A-Rod and Ryan Braun -- were linked to Tony Bosch, a shady PED peddler, who ended up accepting money from MLB's Bud Selig and Rob Manfred, the supposed good guys in all this, to rat on his former rule-breaking clients? Ok, got it. Unfortunately.

It seems like a simple bargain: In exchange for celebrity and wealth, all athletes have to do is play their game and not ethically biff on the national stage. Yet every year the siren's call of jackassery proves too alluring to resist for dozens of the famous and fortunate. Is it frustrating for fans who invest time and money into supporting those players? Unquestionably. But it would be more frustrating if it didn't provide an opportunity to look back and mock those same players for their foibles. And so we present: the 2013 Turkeys of the Year.
