Best:

A-Rod- Will end up with over 800 homers
Bonds- Great before the roids-inhuman after
Ruth- Great hitter AND great pitcher-while eating hot dogs, swilling beer, and catching V.D.
Williams- Went to war twice and still hit 406
Aaron- 714 with no juice.

Favorites:

Pete Rose- He made himself the hit king by willing it.
Rickey Henderson- He was crazier than a s***house rat, always good for a third person quote.
Mark Lemke- Hit 240 during the regular season, 400 in post season. The REAL Mr. October
Ken Griffey Jr. - Purest swing ever- excellent athlete
Rust Staub- He looked like an insurance salesman out there. Just some guy that could hit.

Rusty Staub

Now there's a blast from the past. Always ran like he was tiptoeing on eggshells and it took him roughly 20 seconds to get to first base. A great rbi guy though! cool.gif

Heard a story about Williams on TV. Said in the war he landed a burning plane instead of ejecting because he thought a metal bar above him would hit his knees when ejecting, therefore hampering or ruining his return to the bigs. Now THATS a man that loves the game

Gummy? Cesar Geronimo in your top five favorites? Really? Were you a fast, glove man in high school? Not Rose, Morgan, Griffey or Foster?

Speaking of forgotten, how about Bobby Tolan? He was right before the BRM got reved up. Always wore his batting helmet high because of this thick afro. And Lee Maye?
