All time Padres hunk-off results

August 28th, 2012 by Melvin

Padres Social Media Night

Padres social media day meant meeting tons of passionate and fun Padres fans. I also took the opportunity to talk to folks about hunks. That meant collecting votes and opinions regarding the best looking Padres of all time, as a follow up to a recent discussion about current Padre hunks. After getting past the awkwardness of explaining what I was doing, people submitted their choice for the biggest Padres hunk, which also led to some hot (pun not intended) and passionate (pun also not intended) debate. Some special celebrity voters were included as well.

Does this thing get Pinterest?

The rules were simple: any player on the Padres roster at any time in history was eligible. Opinions varied greatly, with a large number of names mentioned and justifications from preferring the brains of pitcher Chring Young to the squatting ability of Fred McGriff. We received a total of 25 votes, and after disqualifying the top vote recipient “Why Are You Doing This?” an ultimate all time Padres hunk was crowned: Ken Caminiti.

Here’s a listing of all the nominees, and their vote total:

  • Ken Caminiti (4)
  • Brad Ausmus (3)
  • Steve Garvey (3)
  • Cory Luebke (2)
  • Trevor Hoffman (2)
  • Ed Whitson with shirt off (2 – votes independent of each other)
  • Kevin Kouzmanoff (1)
  • Ben Davis (1)
  • Fred McGriff (1)
  • Benito Santiago (1)
  • Chris Young (1)
  • Kurt Bevacqua (1)
  • Greg Vaughn (1)
  • Huston Street (1)
  • Carmelo Martinez (1)

    Only 1 man has improved his score in the online poll. That’s right….Eddie Whitson w/shirt off against the Braves in ’84.
