Although I've been a White Sox fan my whole life my favorite player comes from the north side, Mark Grace. He had the most hits in the 90's and had a good sense of humor when he was interviewed.

Tris Speaker??? How old ARE you? His career spanned from 1907-1928 so I'm guessing you're just joking. He was an all time great though, that's for sure.

My answer: Tony Fernandez. Great glove, could really swing the bat, and was oh so clutch. A quiet, unassuming personality, but an assassin at the plate :-D

Dave Justice
Steve Avery
Greg Maddux

I was a HUGE Justice fan! I even begin watching all Indians games and buying the products when he got traded to them. But all three of those guys have the same birthday as me which is another reason i like them all so much.

Other favs!
Mike Piazza
Roger Clemens
Jim Thome
Wade Boggs
Hideki Matsui
Rob Nen
Otis Nixon
Mark Lemke

He was a great player, and I loved him when he played.

He is a god awful announcer for the D'backs now, and I just want him to shutup.

His on-the-air "swearcast" last year was hilarious though.

My favorite:

I'm a big Braves fan, and I loved these two guys along with Lemke and all the pitchers (Avery, Maddux, Glavine, Smoltz, Boever, even Assenmacher!)

But for my money you just couldn't top Dale Murphy. Every time I got to go to a game as a little kid seeing Murphy play was the highlight of the year.

Two words: Rusty Cuntz

It doesn't get any better than that.

I think I need a tetinus shot.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?
