No respect for Patterson? I saw him hit an infield single at the rogers center last week that just blew me away. The only other player i've seen live come close to that speed would be crawford and gathright.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I'm willing to wager that at this point Roberts is faster than Patterson is, maybe Patterson was faster.

Whatever they've been paying Rickey Henderson to work with Reyes on his plate discipline this year it's not enough. ;-D

Rickey knows Rickey is a good coach. Rickey thinks Rickey should be getting paid more money. Rickey likes money

Rickey also thinks that Rickey needs to be given the chance to play again since Rickey is an insanely talented individual that still has the skills necessary to succeed as a major league player. ;)

[quote="Havok1517"]I think it goes Gathright, Logan, Pods, Pierre, Reyes, FGuzman, Roberts, Figgins, Crawford, Freel, Taveras, Ichiro, Furcal, Drew...quote]


I mentioned Roberts. Freel is faster than Lopez not sure where Lopez ranks (he gets some good jumps though). Rollins seems to have lost a step or 2. Roberts is the fastest that you listed, thougb Ramirez is kind of still a mystery to me.
