Everett was a major league outfielder for the Florida Marlins, New York Mets, Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, Chicago White Sox, Montreal Expos, and Seattle Mariners from 1993-2006. He was a two-time All-Star (2000 and 2003) and amassed a solid career, one that many could envy.
But I am not here to espouse the slightly above average career of Carl Everett, nay. I am here to tell you that Carl Everett was/is certifiably insane.
Everett has questioned the authenticity of the moon landings (odd but not uncommon). Everett was once suspended for grabbing his crotch while circling the bases after hitting a homerun off Jamie Moyer. He was suspended numerous times for fighting with umpires and even his own teammates. He and his wife, Linda, were charged with excessive corporal punishment when it came to their children. But perhaps the most bizarre/best factoid about Carl is that he doesn't believe in the existence of the dinosaurs. When presented with the fairly overwhelming evidence that dinosaurs did in fact once roam the earth, Everett dismiss the fossils elaborate man-made pieces designed to perpetuate a conspiracy.
Carl is crazy.
