Brandon and I were trading emails yesterday, discussing our respective regional weather calamities (me = underwater, him = on fire), when he asked if I could help him out with a feature or a couple posts today. I responded, "I'll try to do a feature if I see something worthwhile. I promise. If not I'll probably end up doing something stupid like a series of five posts about my favorite Phillies players and what I think they smell like. (CHASE UTLEY SMELLS LIKE GRITS BEHCUZ HE'S GRITTY!)" I then went to bed laughing to myself about what a funny joke I just told, and tried to think about something that I could turn into a feature.
However, because Brandon is a delightful maniac, not only did he thank me for offering to help, he strongly encouraged me to follow through with my joke idea. So here we are. Instead of just doing Phillies, however, I've branched out to cover the whole major leagues. This is easily the stupidest and/or best thing I've ever done.
[Ed. note -- Be sure to tell us what you think players who didn't make Danger's list probably smell like in the comments section. The best one wins a prize, which will probably be scratch-n-sniff stickers]
Player: Alex Rodriguez
What I Think He Smells Like: ALEX Cologne and Bronzer by Alex Rodriguez, based on a scent inspired by Alex Rodriguez

What I Think He Smells Like: A Ben-Gay factory that was buried in an Icy Hot avalanche
