Chris Leroux pitched in the big leagues for six seasons, pitching 65 games with the Pirates, Marlins and Yankees. It wasn’t the most distinguished big league career, but just making the big leagues is a rare and admirable accomplishment, to Leroux could retire to his native Canada and work in cranberry bogs or something and spend the rest of his life with his head held high if he wanted to.

He’s going to get a second shot at fame, however. Reality TV fame:

I don’t watch “The Bachelor.” I think I may be one of the only web-based baseball writers who doesn’t (seriously, my Twitter feed is filled with people who love that show for some reason). I assume the Canadian version is something I can similarly safely ignore while everyone else I know pays attention to it too. But good luck all the same Chris.
