If you were able to make the perfect baseball player, almost like in a frankenstein fashion, which players would you choose?
I have been thinking about this for days. The only thing that was certain for me was that I need Dustin Pedroia to somehow fit into the fold of creating this monster of a baseball player. Pedroia certainly does not shout power and speed. But he does have one of the smartest minds in baseball, and the grit that out does anybody. First to arrive at the ballpark and last to leave.
Although these descriptions of the reasons I chose these 4 guys seems obvious and bland, there was no better way for me to describe their skill sets. At the end of the day you could honestly just mash all of these together and you have Mike Trout, but that wouldn't have been any fun. Dustins ability to be a leader, smash the ball and field like a wizard makes him one of my favorite players in the game. I also knew I had to fit Mike Trout in here, so why not throw him dead center and throw his NFL ready torso right in the middle of things. Giancarlo Stantons biceps say it all, as his arm sleeve can barely contain his forearms. Billy Hamilton may be the fastest man on earth, so choosing his legs to stand my creation on was no question. Please, mind my photoshop skills. Creating the perfect ball player is no easy task. Especially when they all are completely different in the way they play and how they look.
Who would you pick to make the perfect baseball player?
