Interesting that two of the worst players in the bigs have the best arms :-S

That is not true. They haven't lived up to their hype but they aren't close the being the worst players in the majors. Not even close.

I saw the title and first person I thought of was Jose Guillen. I know the throw he made with Pittsburgh is on the web. But I also remember a play when he was with the Reds where he threw a ball from the track in left field and one hopped it to the plate on a line. Talk about a million dollar arm and a 10 cent brain.

Raul used to be able to pump fake runners back to 2nd base from the right field foul pole.

no love for Victorino or Werth? I'm quite a homer, but anyone has gotta admit that they've both got cannons. Where might they rank amongst the OF arms of the day? I was never around for Roberto Clemente (a few of you guys might have been) but I have heard that he had a cannon as well. Anyone care to comment?
