both Ortiz and Hafner can be just as feared today...lets not forget just how clutch Papi was last year to go along with his 54 taters

Joe Morgan is obviously still enamored with "The Big Red Machine".

Technically, Chuck norris is not feared because quicker than a synapse can fire to trigger a pitcher's fear, He will have roundhouse kicked the pitcher to death.


Unless that pitcher is Cole Hamels.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Is the question who do fans fear the most?

or is it

Who do pitchers fear the most?

The first is Sheffield and the second is Bonds.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

I polled most MLB pitchers and it was clearly Pat Burrell.

Sheffield to me, is the scariest hitter in the game. That has nothing to do with being the best hitter, just the most violent.

Third base coaches are terrified of him :-b

Joe Morgan's reasoning is simply astounding at times.

"Joe, who do you think was the greatest boxer of all time?"

Obviously you could make a connection between how many times a hitter walks and how feared they are by pitchers. This has to do with other factors, including protection in the lineup, which Bonds doesn't have much of these days.

But Morgan's rationale was that Sheffield was "most feared" because he's always looking to crush the ball. OK, that's clever... a lot of players are always looking to crush the ball. Ortiz and Hafner were mentioned. Ryan Howard tries, if he can make contact that is. Pujols is always sitting on that fastball.

Don't get me wrong, Sheffield is a fine player and he would scare the crap out of me if he were angry, or if I decided to throw beer on him from the outfield stands. But I think Morgan read Sheffield's new book like it was a Hustler magazine.
