Via The Hall of Very Good:
I admit it, gang, I'm still a fan of the show "Survivor.”
So when I read the news recently that former big leaguer (and future Hall of Famer?) Jeff Kent is rumored to be a cast member, I was excited. Naturally, I reached out to my normal coterie of "Survivor" experts to get their opinion on the 44-year-old Kent and his chances in the Philippines.

"It's very exciting," two-time castaway Rob Cesternino told me, "but at one point Kimbo Slice and Carrie Prejean were rumored to be on Survivor 24, so I'll wait until it's a bit more concrete."
"I think it's hilarious. He should be a much more fun character than Jimmy Johnson or Gary Hogeboom ever were," "Survivor" podcaster Mario Lanza said. "Wasn't he considered one of the biggest a**holes in recent baseball history? Now we have a celebrity villain, with an evil villain mustache. I am looking forward to it."
