Rickey!

I generally stay out of discussions about Hall of Fame candidates because I just don't find those discussions that interesting, but don't interpret that as a lack of love for Rickey Henderson. Is there any player in the history of the game more fun to watch and more fun to listen to than Rickey Henderson?

No. No there is not.

Rickey at the age of 50 is still the Man of Steal, and if given the opportunity, he incredibly said he would lead the majors in stolen bases.

"I believe today, and people say I'm crazy, but if you gave me as many at-bats that you would give the runners out there today, I would out-steal every last one of them," Henderson said with typical bravado...

Henderson said he would love to play in the World Baseball Classic for Team USA. If Bernie Williams can come back, why not Rickey?

"What is [the WBC], wrestling?" Rickey said when asked if he would like to play in the WBC. Told it was the World Baseball Classic and games will be played in March, Rickey said, "Can I get in?"

Thanks to Primer.
