No baseball for over 3 months? Don't worry, the Internet has you covered!
From time to time, we all fall into the trap of watching video after video of players doing things that we wish we could do. With the advent of YouTube and MLB's video service (moreso the former, but due to video rights, we're kind of limited to the latter), we'll have fun from time to time looking at an hour's worth of videos instead of doing the laundry/dishes/shoveling the driveway.
This list will be limited to the non-Tigers of the world (don't worry, we'll have plenty of opportunities to examine the contributions of Brad's Boys later). Players are evaluated less on their stats/sabermetrics and more on their DAAAAAAAAMN potential.
5. Wily Mo Pena
I think it was once mentioned on Deadspin that Wily Mo Pena was a one tool player. While the list is not a long one, the bombs he hits are worth a look. Major points off for the fact that he kind of sucks besides the ability to absolutely demolish balls.
4. Ken Griffey, Jr.
Is it possible we've already forgotten how awesome this kid was? I used to mimic his stance/bat whirl in the back yard (I'm right-handed and I made it look terrible) and wore my hat backwards cause of this guy. Since he played before the internet really took off, his videos aren't nearly as numerous as they should be, but there are some amazing ones in there regardless (bonus points for the blue and yellow Mariners uniforms).
3. Andruw Jones
Jones made some of the more ridiculous catches I can ever remember seeing, including a dive in Montreal to end a game and one in Shea where a liner to the gap turned into a double play. He also could wield the bat a bit, but he's definitely on this list more for the glove.
For a pitcher, you don't get much more impressive. Between the exploding bird and the ridiculous mix of pitches, you can catch yourself watching him for a while.
It's really not close. He hits the ball a mile, hits bad pitches, hits balls that bounce, and even fields his position pretty well too, if you call throwing from the warning track to third base on a line pretty well. I would pay money to watch Vlad hit terrible pitches all day. He's amazing.
Any other good rabbit hole suggestions?
