All right, I'm sure some of you on here are baseball fans so I figured I'd get your input on this. I just was arguing with my buddy for about 10 minutes because he was trying to tell me that Andruw Jones is a better CF than Jim Edmonds. I think that at 37 years old, Edmonds is still better than Jones who is 6 years younger and all ready starting to fall apart.

So what do you guys think? Edmonds or Jones, or someone else?

Griffey. Hands down.

To answer your question..I'd say Edmonds

Can't disagree with Griffey either. In his prime there wasn't a ball he couldn't get to.

Haha, I think I would pay just to see Manny Ramirez play center field for a game. What a mess that would be....

Torii Hunter can rob homeruns like no other and you see alot more of his defensive highlights than others. Might not be the best but he has my vote.

Griffey Jr and I'm not even sure if there's a close second. When he was healthy for Seattle he was one of the best defensive outfielders of all time.

Griffey made outfield play look easy. His range was so great and his arm was so good that he rarely had to make the highlight reel-style catches that guys like Jones, Hunter, and Edmonds got famous for because he really didn't need to. But when he had to make those plays, they were typically spectacular.

He was destined to be the greatest pure ballplayer since Willie Mays. Griffey should have gotten all the home run records and recognition, not Bonds.

I have to say Griffey is probably my favorite player of all time, and the thing that sucks is that he made so many plays in the outfield and put his body on the line so often, that I think it's one of the main reasons he was injured so often.

But I have to agree....if he doesn't miss the majority of 2 years of his career and he's not worn down, he probably owns the HR record right now easily.

Probably Jones. Edmonds is the most overrated defensive player ever. Nobody has made more routine grabs look like insane catches than Edmonds.

Jones and Griffy have better arms, but as far as making a play I am going to have to with Ichiro... why he is not on the poll is beyond me.

I dunno why I voted Andruw Jones... Ken Griffey is the man!

lol, maybe because Jones is still one of the best and Griffey's range has decreased in the past 3 years. Their arms are pretty equal but I think Griffy has a better arm, but not by much.
