He would definitely qualify. Again...this list is bogus.

If he can run, he sure didn't show it in St. Louis.

Wow! I was about to chose Crawford over Michael Bourn for a moment, until I remembered a few of his highlights.

I see everyone else agrees with me

Re: Who do you think is the fastest player in baseball?

Well, we're never gonna get true times like you can in the NFL, so let's call the guys above "top tier" speed guys of the MLB. Then which of these guys do you think should be included in that top tier as well?
  • Elvis Andrus
  • Peter Bourjos
  • Emmanuel Burriss
  • Ichiro
  • Desmond Jennings
  • Michael Martinez
  • Cameron Maybin
  • Nyjer Morgan
  • Corey Patterson
  • Juan Pierre
  • Hanley Ramirez
  • Grady Sizemore
  • Andres Torres
  • Jemile Weeks
  • Rickie Weeks

I'm questioning Ichiro because of his age. I don't get to see Sizemore, Burriss or Jennings enough to know. Hanley is hard to gauge since he seems like he doesn't give a rat's *** a lot of the time. I would think Juan Pierre and Michael Martinez would be no brainers.

Sizemore doesn't have speed anymore. Knee injuries have definitely ended that part of his game.
