Anyone have any favorite players that...

Todd Hundley. When I started getting into baseball he had that season when he broke the all time record for HRs for catchers in a single season. If it wasn't for Javy Lopez he might still be the man.

I've never seen a more clutch player than Jeff Conine. Every time he comes up in a big clutch situation he has a good at bat. I was pleasantly surprised when he won All-Star Game MVP that one year. If I were a GM for a team with October aspirations my first move would be to secure the services of Mr. Conine ASAP.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Oh, Jason Kendall. He's been a favorite for a long time.

Ever since he dove over the catcher to score.

He did all the little things that never showed up in a box score, got the big hit when needed, and just all-around played the game the right way. Honestly things really started going downhill when they dealt him away and went with Cirillo and then Beltre. I think he was more valuable than anyone ever gave him credit for.



hahahahahahahahaaha

i cant believe someone just said that david bell was their favorite player considering that hes probably my VERY LEAST favorite player.


He was never my absolute favorite player, but I enjoyed watching him play and seeing what he brought to the game. Look, you Philly fans got in over your heads. You signed him to a big contract, expecting him to come in and be a run producer. That's not his game, never was, never will be. What he did in Seattle was provide great D, clutch hits (if there is such a thing), and play the game the way it was meant to be played. He was a hard-nosed guy who got his uniform dirty, and I enjoyed him immensely.

I'll top 'em all:

Ripken!

Hold on, i don't mean Cal, i mean Billy. Sounds funny, yes, but I used to play Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball for my N64 constantly, and MAN, this guy was, mysteriously, really, really good in that game. As a result, i liked watching him as a ballplayer.

To each his own, indeed.

Billy will forever be the guy who had a swear word on the knob of his bat to me :-b

As far as the Braves go Mark Lemke, David Justice and Fred McGriff top the list, sadly I never got to see any of them play in person. I am from Miami and when the Marlins started out their centerfielder, Chuck Carr, was fun to watch.
