Q+A: Who's the Best Athlete in Pirates History?

I did a little Q+A at But The Game Is On, for which I was asked a very interesting question: is Andrew McCutchen the best athlete in the history of the Pirates organization? I said no and rattled off some names, including those of several players who also played other sports at a high level: Nyjer Morgan, Vic Janowicz, Akili Smith, Chris Young. I'm hardly the best person to answer that question, though--some of you know far more about Pirates history than I. So I put the question to you--what do you think?
