There are still a few more hours left to cast your vote on the four greatest living players in MLB history over at MLB.com. It's actually been a lot of fun seeing peoples' responses, so I figured I'd go ahead and share my vote with all of you.
My first three picks were fairly easy, since they're three of the greatest of all-time... regardless of being dead or alive.

Okay... so I know that some people will disagree with my Barry vote. But the guy has 7 MVP Awards (most all-time), 12 Silver Slugger Awards (most all-time), 8 Gold Glove Awards, and has the most home runs in MLB history... so I just can't keep him off of my list.
Which brings me to my fourth and final spot. This was tough, because I wanted to include at least one pitcher on this list. The problem? There were just too many to choose from and I honestly couldn't pick between Maddux, Clemens, Seaver, and Koufax.
I also considered including Pete Rose on this list, since he's the All-Time Hit King... and even Alex Rodriguez.
However when it came down to it, I decided to be a homer and pick one of my all-time favorite players...

The Man of Steal is the greatest leadoff hitter of all-time, because he knew how to get on base and create runs. And I never realized that he almost had 300 career home runs. The guy was a threat to score whenever he stepped up to the plate.
Okay. It's your turn.
Step up to the plate and tell us who you think the four greatest living baseball players are.
Happy Friday and sayonara!
