Do you really have to use the word "sexy"? We're not selling lingerie!

Just a pet peeve of mine...I don't have an issue with the content of the article, but Jerry Crasnick is using that tired cliche in sports journalism ,"sexy" ,to describe top free agents like Crawford and Lee. To make it worse, Ben Nicholson-Smith uses sexy in his summation of the article at MLBTradeRumors. I might be nit-picking a bit here, but sportswriters and broadcasters need to stop it, its way overused, and its a little strange when you think about it using the word when describing ballplayers.
