Who's on your bucket list? Let's discuss

Jul 12, 2010, 2:31 AM EDT

ANAHEIM, Calif. – The All-Star game is a great opportunity to see baseball royalty in action, as most of the game’s best players will all be together in one spot.

But who are the true greats, the so called bucket-list players who every fan should see play at least once? For help in these matters, we went to the players themselves  and asked for their opinions. This is what they said.

Here is an excerpt from Indians reliever Chris Perez, speaking of Albert Pujols …

“I was fortunate enough to play with him my first year in the big leagues, and I got to see his work ethic and what kind of person he is. I don’t think there’s anybody better in the game than him, honestly. Thirty years from now, I think it’d be pretty special to say I played with Albert Pujols and watch him strap it up for a season.”

Check out the story to see who else the players love.

    Who’s on my bucket list? Too many to list. I’d say every team has at least a few I love to watch, and most have more than a few. I mean I have something like 5 guys I really enjoy watching on the Nats, yeah the Nats. I guess I’m easy to please….

    Positional player: Derek Jeter. Pitcher: Mariano Rivera.

    If you had said anybody in the past could count, I would have started with Jackie Robinson.
    But today? Mariano Rivera is absolutely top of the list. I’d also have to list Albert Pujols, Tim Linceum and Vladimir Guerrero. Each have left a very distinct impression with their style.
