Who is your favorite hitter and why?
Barry Bonds--Most Home Runs in a single season. Watching Barry Bonds during his last several seasons, makes it obvious that no one in baseball was every more feared by pitchers. And no one in baseball was ever pitched too as tough and carefully as Bonds. Bonds was capable of hitting ANY pitch out of the park, off any pitcher at any time.
Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
Historically, Sandy Koufax. He was very fast and had beautiful form. And he was, and is, an outstanding person.
No real current favorite.
If I had to pick, it would be Tim Lincecum of the Giants.
