Best and worst giveaways of 2013

April, 1, 2013

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.
