MLB the Show revealed their cover athlete for the 2023 edition of the game, and it is former Arizona Diamondback Jazz Chisholm. We go over all the reasons why we disagree with the decision – both legitimate and petty – and give our long list of better options.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
