Fred McGriffAnswerJulio Franco - lol. He went 0-for-1 in one game for the team in 1999. I'd have to say Aubrey Huff is the best player for the Rays, because he's good, and still getting better. AnswerThe best player in Rays history -- as in home grown talent -- is most likely Aubrey Huff. The best player (who had the best MLB career) to play for the Rays is possibly Jose Canseco. The best player to play fo rthe rays with a solid Baseball career and solid performance as a Ray is indeed Fred McGriff as was first suggested.
The best player to be a Ray and enver play for the Rays is Bobby Abreu of the Philadelphia Phillies - who was selected in the expansion draft and then traded for Kevin Stocker.AnswerMy picks:
Best Overall Player-Carl Crawford
Best Overall Pitcher-Rolando Arrojo
Worst Overall Player-Damian Rolls
Worst Overall Pitcher-Doug Waechter
Most Overrated Player-Rocco Baldelli
Most Underrated Player-Julio Lugo
