Baseball players come in all shapes and sizes, fast and slow.  Today, let's look at the fast.

(All-slow team to come later!)

Of course, there will be a log jam in the outfield, so I'll do my best to pick the best to start.

C:  Rob Johnson:  The hardest postition to find fast people, the Mariner's prospect can fly.

1B:  Albert Pujols:  Not only is he the fastest, but now I have a cleanup hitter!

2B:  Ian Kinsler:  Good speed.  Not great, but good.  Probably one of the faster second basemen ever.

3B:  Chone Figgens:  Great leadoff third baseman

SS:  Jimmy Rollins:  No surprise

LF:  Carl Crawford:  Big, strong, fast.

CF:  Jacoby Ellsbury:  Leader in SB last few years.

RF:  Ichiro:  I still think that he's the fastest in the league

DH: (honorable mention)  Micheal Bourn

Line-up:

1:  Ichiro

2:  Ellsbury

3:  Crawford

4:  Pujols

5:  Kinsler

6:  Figgens

7:  Johnson

8:  Rollins

9:  Bourn
