For the record, I was making my picks as you were doing yours. I submitted them without seeing your choices, so don't think that I just piggy-backed off your picks ;-)
I guess great minds do think alike. ;-D

So it looks like so far:

a. We need to have a race with Ortiz, Molina, Pickering, Thome and Phillips. That would be very entertaining.
b. We need a race between Gathright and Crawford.
c. Tough to determine. My money is still on Soriano.
d. Maddux looks like the clear winner.
e. Need a run-off between Vlad and Suzuki
f. Lots of choices. Need to have a competion with Bernie, Damon, Pierre and Stewart. Stewart is going to win imo. Man can barely throw the ball in from left field.
g. Cox wins easily
h. Baker is getting a lot of votes, but no clear option.
I. Jeter looks like the easy winner
J. Bonds wins easily.

Wait a minute... You don't like Soriano? Whaaaaaa?

Also, both Damon and Floyd have 2 votes for worst OF arm. Both throw like little girls. I think Shannon can out-throw either. Perhaps some sabermetric guy can give us some obscure fielding stat?

Soriano is as dumb as a brick imo. It takes quite a mind to hit a ball you think was a homer, watch it hit the wall and get a single, get chewed out by your manager and then repeat the same mistake a 2nd time.

I do not think Floyd's arm is anywhere near as bad as Stewart's. I have seen runners go 1st to 3rd on singles hit right at him. I have never seen that with Floyd.

A. Slowest man in MLB - Jorge Posada - Kind of combined slow with terrible baserunning on this one.

B. Fastest Man in MLB - Joey Gathright - No real explanation needed. Flat out speed demon.

C. Dumbest ball player - Kevin Brown - Anyone that punches a wall and injures themselves seems pretty dumb to me.

D. Smartest ball player - Greg Maddux - No explanation needed.

E. Best OF arm - Ichiro - Vlad in a close second.

F. Worst OF arm - Bernie Williams - Keeps on getting weaker also.

G. Best manager - Joe Torre - Cox close... don't really think he's the greatest manager personally but he seems to make it work for the Braves with less year after year. Much respect to him.

H. Worst manager - Frank Robinson - You can't fall asleep in the middle of a game!

I. Most respected and liked ball player - Hideki Matsui - Seems like a true winner and ball-player. Goes out and knows how to get the job done.

J. Most disrespected and hated ball player - Pedro Martinez - Alot respect Bonds for what he's done (not me) but it's not the same for Pedro.

Posada would probably indeed win the poorest base running instincts award. He or Alex Sanchez.

On pure speed though I think he is Crawford compared to Molina.
