Currently playing -- Ichiro. I don't remember the last guy who was so much fun to watch whether in the box, in the field or on the bases.

All-time -- I have to say Pete Rose (maybe that answers my above question), but there are SO many it's hard to choose.

Great topic Ben.

Great topic! I'm a college teacher, and I actually use this question on the first day of class as an icebreaker (the non-baseball folks get to tell me what they consider to be an 'essential album, painting, or book' or their favorite thing to eat, but I digress.)

Current favorite: Zito. Absolutely blew me away last year when I watched him take a no-hitter into the 8th against the Mariners. It's the closest I've been to seeing a no-hitter, and it was the most riveting sporting feat I've ever seen.

All-time favorite: Dave Stewart. Nobody stared down a pitcher like he did. Except maybe Bob Gibson, but that was before my time.

Honorable mention: Satchel Paige. I mean he was, what, 49 when he played for the Indians? That's just cool.

this is a great question...but my favorite now is my favorite of all time

Jeff Bagwell...as a reds fan i hate the astros...but i love this guy his size his attitude that crouching batting style...made me proud to be a righthanded first baseman in high school..plus it was great when he looked like a mountain man when he challenged the astros pitchers to not give up a homerun in a game...i swear i have a gottee still because of that.

but in the sense of fun i have always been a huge John Kruck fan..my home state WV...thats all we got...and George Brett lived in Martainsburg for 6 years..so there ya go
i appreciate your input!
