I know a lot of people get bent out of shape about NBA players leaving early from college and not graduating. Well, wait until you check out these numbers from MLB.

The Wall Street Journal did their best to find out how many MLB players and managers had a college degree. The number they came up with? 26.

Are you kidding me? Man, that's one team (again, including managers).

Bill Simmons once said he thought the stupidest athletes out there were baseball players, I think I'll have to agree with him.

By the way, if you're wondering who the smartest team in baseball is, it's the Oakland A's.
