Your hitter with the World Series on the line

If you guys keep this up, I think I can retire early and let someone else get behind the bar. In two days, we've had two suggestions (one from my son, one from patron Joe) and we've had great response.

All I've had to do is make a few silly jokes and keep the conversation going. I could get used to this.

I am going to piggyback yesterday's discussion about the one pitcher you'd want to start Game 7 of the World Series. Looks like Bob Gibson gets the majority of votes for an all-time answer, and Josh Beckett, who struggled against the Orioles yesterday, is the current guy who received the most support.

Today, let's go back to that moment in your backyard or back alley. It's a tied score, bases loaded, two outs, bottom of the ninth inning. You step to the plate and who are you?

Or if you don't want to play that game, then think this way: If you could choose any player at any time to send up in that situation, whom would you summon?

Reggie Jackson, Babe Ruth and Kirk Gibson are obvious ones. And I know Frank Robinson will get some love around here. It has to be someone clutch, someone cool, someone you know will do whatever he can to get that run home.

Daily Think Special: Which hitter would you send up to the plate with the World Series Game 7 on the line? Give me one current and one former player.
