I wonder what they meant by the word “smart”. Does it refer to their overall level of intelligence, or specifically how smart they are within the game of baseball? Ohlendorf (1) and Breslow (3) definitely fit within the first category, but I’m not so sure the rest do. Jeter more intelligent than Breslow??? doubtful. Just wiki Breslow and prepare to be blown away.
Still no Braves on this list. But you know who’s always struck me as intelligent? Nate McLouth. Thoughts?
