    He made headlines by insisting on carrying his baseball bat in a gun case, while on a flight.
    He was outspoken in regards to the Baseball Hall of Fame, going as far as saying he would have made arrangements not to be posthumously inducted.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He is the Cleveland franchise's all-time leader in total bases, RBI's, runs scored and triples.
    He was the first player in major league history to record four home runs in a doubleheader.
    He hit a home run in his first major league at-bat (1929).
    He was injured by a malfunctioning firecracker, which burned his face and chest, along with lacerations on the fingers.
