    Who is your favorite baseball player?

    This has probably been asked before but i was just curious to know who everyone's favorites were.

    By the way, mine is Pedro Martinez. Huge follower of the Redsox and went to Fenway every summer just to watch him pitch. To bad he doesn't still pitch for them.

    Right now, it's getting to be a fight between John Danks and Carlos Quentin. All-time, Frank Thomas or Mark Buehrle.

    Ken Griffey jr.

    One of the sweetest swing ever. And a GREAT center fielder. If only he hadnt been injury prone. Between running into the wall in Seattle a couple times and damn Cincinatti, he's missed about 4 years at least from injuries. Imagine what kind've numbers he'd have put up already. He would have more dingers than Bonds, and doing it steroid free.

    Carlos Zambrano. Love his attitude and don't mind that he can sometimes be a headcase out on the mound. Also like that he's a switch-hitter that has some pop for being a pitcher.

    Either Derek Lee or Alfonso Soriano.

    All-Time it's Ryno. Hands down.


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Right now I'm loving watching Soto turn into a superstar.

    Yes... it is quite exciting to watch a rookie who may very well turn into a phenom... especially when he plays on your team!

    Re: Who is your favorite baseball player?

    Even though he's barely hitting his weight, I'd have to say Robinson Cano right now. By far my favorite all time is Tino Martinez though. Two Yankees that don't get any of the spotlight but they go out there and perform.

    Re: Who is your favorite baseball player?

    Don't have one but among the players I like are Cal Ripken Jr., KirbyPuckett, Ozzie Smith, Dave Winfield and Greg Maddux.

    One of my all time favorite names for a baseball player is Bombo Rivera.

    Does Chico Escuela count?
