Favorite Major Leaguers

Are you ready for some baseball? Not WBC, but the Major leagues? I am. I'm anticipating another phenomenal managerial job by Tony LaRussa and a better-than-expected season by the St. Louis Cardinals. But, at the end of the season, it will be the L. A. Dodgers and Boston Red Sox in the Word Series.

Here's a list of my favorite current big-leaguers. Who makes your list?
  1. Ken Griffey, Jr. (a class act, just sad he'll never make a World Series)
  2. Albert Pujols (simply, the best!)
  3. Rick Ankiel (I've rooted for him since he was a pitcher)
  4. Ryan Howard (great attitude and personality)
  5. Josh Hamilton (great story . . . wishing he'll inspire the Rangers to great things)
  6. Lance Berkman (fun to watch)
  7. John Smoltz (it took me almost 20 years to appreciate him)
  8. Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez (makes every team he plays with better)
  9. Trevor Hoffman (one cool dude)
  10. Randy Johnson (one tall dude!)
