Oddibe McDowell Owes $105.40

For the last few months I've had a guilty pleasure...keeping up-to-date on former Major Leaguer Oddibe McDowell's water bill.

You see, for some reason, the guys over at Deadspin have gotten their proverbial hands on the 1984 Golden Spikes Award winner's utility bills...and I love it!

Was he an all-time great? Lone Star Ball once ranked him as the 47th Greatest Ranger of All-Time...but, of course not.

Is he of relevance today? Nope. The lifetime .253 hitter is the head coach of the Everglades (Florida) High School Varsity Baseball team.

It's just the complete randomness that I am a fan of.

And, yeah, the first person who breaks out one of Chris Berman's hackneyed nicknames in the comments gets a make believe kick to the face. Haha.

Here's the latest bill. Thanks Deadspin!

I love Oddibe, and this is a tragic time for everybody involved. I wish him the best of luck in getting through these tragic water woes. Your site is great man, I love it!

How about someone checking Oddibee's family status. Check to find out what he's (not) doing for his 3 children. This hall of fame idiot has kicked his children to the curb without any support. pfft
