Daily SAll-Star: Mediocrity in a Bag

In order to combat the greatness of last SAll-Star, I must choose a man of great mediocrity.

That man? John Emil Jaha.

Perhaps the greatest and only baseball player of Lebanese descent, John Jaha was a first baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers and Oakland Athletics during the 90s. Never great, Jaha was named to one All-Star team and won absolutely no other awards. Still, Jaha was a consummate player that everyone loved. Plus he was chunky, so he's a personal favorite of mine.
