The great DJ Gallo is back with his annual list of the best and worst promotions of 2013.

My favorite "worst" promotion:

Giancarlo Stanton Arm Sleeve -- June 2

The 17 fans at Marlins Park will find it pretty awkward when they’re handed a Giancarlo Stanton arm sleeve six weeks after he’s been traded for cash.


I mean, what do you do with an arm sleeve anyway? Wear it to school? Wear it on the bus ride to work?

And my favorite "best" promotion:

Justin Verlander Bobblehead -- April 24

You can’t go wrong with a bobblehead giveaway of a big star. Although people would probably much prefer if this came with a Kate Upton figurine.
