Matt Holiday is up there simply for being so nice and posing for a picture with my son. (oh and the Cardinals are my favorite NL team so that doesn't hurt)

Agree

I have at least 2
Ryan Braun
Justin Verlander
Both very good on and off the field PS Braun still hasn't been found guilty

I'll third the Mark Buehrle mention, though it feels too weird to think of him as a non-Sox player.

Makes me want to sit here and boo Adam Dunn and Alex Rios from my couch.

I forgot about Ricky Romero. Not only a good ballplayer, but a great guy too. Definitely one of my favorites.

I'll have to find a way to afford MLB.tv again, as I've had it since I was a sophomore in college, and that was 8 years ago. I think I'll watch the NL East quite a bit this year.

I've always loved watching him, as well. It's a shame he seems to be over the hill now, but he should be a 1st ballot HOF.

Classy guy. He's also from the south suburbs and went to UIC.

I just really enjoy watching Yadier Molina catch a game. . .he brings another aspect to the game like no other catcher- picking guys off 1st, etc.

Yeah, I'll second Curtis Granderson.

A native Chicagoan who'd I'd love to see play for the Sox someday. Also, apparently a stand-up guy. There's the whole story about the friendship he initiated with the family of a deceased fan of his.

Too bad he's a Yankee.

Yeah, Brian Bluhm. He was killed in the VT tragedy in 2007. He was a fan of Granderson's from the day he was drafted.

I used to joke with my wife that I had an inter-racial man-crush on him. He is a special guy.

Buehrle and Konerko are two of my favorite non Tigers.

I've actually grown to appreciate Jeter over the years. Someone once relayed a story about running into him at a gym somewere in Northern Michigan. The guy had a sweatshirt on from his college, a mid level school like Saginaw Valley, Michigan Tech, Western Michigan, etc. He starts talking to the guy about their coach, their recruiting class, he knew all about it. Genuine sports fan.
