The celebs were listed in this order:

Chris Rock
Billy Crystal
Whoopi Goldberg
George Lopez
Spike Lee
Justin Tuck
Bobby Flay
Marlee Matlin
Jerry Ferrara
William Baldwin
James Denton
Kyle Massey
Maria Menounos
AJ Calloway

This speaks very poorly for baseball. There is one hot babe (Maria Menounos), the wrong Baldwin, assorted old comics and only one professional athlete from another sport. Turtle is fine. But they couldn’t get Drama or E? No rock stars? No models? No movie actors? One of the men from Desperate Housewives? Really? We didn’t expect Eva Longoria, but Terry Hatcher would have been fine.

Who’s actually cool in this group? Chris Rock and Spike Lee. Maybe Turtle. That’s it.

Very disappointing. We call on Bud Selig to appoint a new VP of Celebrity Gathering. Or get tips from A-Rod, he seems to know a lot of famous people.
