He's a freak. Had over a thousand hits and was 27 before he even got here ... and still has numbers like that. Arguably the best gun of them all too. Had a conversation about that a few days ago. Who you got for the best arm ever? The ones that popped into my head were Ichiro, Vlad, Sheff, Jesse Barfield ... and I can't remember the last one. Vlad and Sheff had cannons but the accuracy was lacking. Barfield is one only Yankee fans know but that arm was nasty. Ichiro throws (threw) it as hard as any of them but what always set him apart was his crazy accuracy. From the wall to the mitt on a rope. Crazy. Dude tried to tell me Jay Buhner's arm was underrated. I always thought his arm - along with the rest of him - was safely in the overrated range.
