Terry Bross Award Winners

Oh...Christmas!  In a matter of hours, you'll have come and gone and left a bevy of holiday-related posts in your wake.

And, yeah, The Hall has been guilty of that in the past as well.  Thankfully, this year, that's not how The Hall's baseball card expert Bo Rosny rolls.

Below are the 2012 winners of the Terry Bross Award, named for the ten most porn-star-sounding names of guys on a baseball card.

Why Terry Bross?

The undistinguished former New York Mets pitcher is now an agent, and used porn star Bibi Jones (best known for her pictures with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski) to recruit potential clients like Dan Uggla, often sleeping with them to help “seal the deal”.

And not a Steve Christmas in the bunch.
