Brendan Rogers Press Conference Smiling - 16/02/2014

As unfortunate names go, you couldn't probably do worse than this poor bloke.

Unless your name was Brendan Rodgers, you probably had a pretty quiet Sunday and definitely didn't get sacked after a derby draw.

So you'd think only one Brendan Rodgers faced the wrath of Liverpool fans after dropping some points against their Merseyside rivals and getting the boot, but no.

It turns out that another party as been affected by his namesake and had a pretty miserable Sunday and Monday because of it.

Yep, there is a baseball player in America called... Brendan Rodgers. He really isn't too impressed by being sent LOADS of abuse for being unfortunate enough to be named after the very characterful man.

The American Brendan Rodgers who plays for the Colorado Rockies in Major League Baseball's National League and is NOT Brendan Rodgers the out of work football manager.

We reckon he probably shouldn't look at Twitter for a while as he only seems to be getting more and more tweets confusing him for the ex-Liverpool man. 

Poor Brendan.
