Default Who is your favorite active non-White Sox player?

Just because I'm curious about everyone here - who is your favorite active non-White Sox player?

You can answer AJ if you want!


Mine is Joey Votto.

I really like Buster Posey.

Even when you see him in street clothes, he looks like a baseball player. He also makes a huge difference on the field, both offensively and defensively and apparently off the field as well. Since calling up Posey, the only season the Giants haven't won the World Series was the one where he was injured. He also handles everything with immense class. When a reporter asked him last season if he was frustrated that AT&T was hurting his power numbers, he answered that he wasn't. It just meant he had to start hitting the ball farther.

Roy Halladay, I'm hoping he bounces back this year. He's beggining to make a strong hof case.

I'll stick with my answer from last spring. For those players with no past connection to the Sox, it's Curtis Granderson. I also admit that I really enjoy watching Derek Jeter play. Does that make me a bad person?

Seconded. I have a number of Phillies players whom I like, and he's on that list. Their entire core could use a "bounce-back" season.

Mike Trout. I have been following him since he broke out in the minors. I just love everything about his game.

Evan Longoria.
I was not sure if your question included all ex Sox players, but since you said AJ is OK, I will add Mark Buerhle.
