Default Who is your favorite active non-Sox player?

I like quite a few players...Longoria is definitely up there for me, but as the Giants have been my NL favorite since I was a kid, I also like Lincecum and Posey. I also really like(d) Braun, but we'll see what happens there.

I'm sure more will come to me later. You guys have anyone? Would you buy a t shirt/jersey of them, or do you restrict that to Sox players?

Since the Rays have a soft spot in my heart I have to go with Evan Longoria.

For players with no connection to the White Sox, mine is Curtis Granderson. Aside from being a really good player, he seems like a solid citizen and great ambassador for the game.

I've always been a huge fan of Michael Young. Classy guy and a tremendous clutch hitter. Always felt that he has been underrated in his career because of the market he played in.

EDIT: To answer your question SephClone, I limit myself to only White Sox shirts/jerseys. As much as I like Young, I could never bring myself to wear a Rangers shirt or any other MLB team. It just feels wrong somehow but that is a personal preference.
