Football, right now at this minute is Brees, Chris Johnson, or Patrick Willis. Hard to say because in football people's jobs differ so much.

MMA is Fedor. Gimme a fcuking break. The man has been dominant his entire career. Anderson Silva is probably better than GSP at this point too.

Agreed. It can vary so much from season to season too. Currently/for this past year I'd say Brees though. Chokers can't be considered the best in their sport (Manning).

Peyton Manning is not the best athlete in football. That is asinine. There's no way on earth that the best athlete in football is a QB (unless you picked Vick in his prime).

It'd have to be a linebacker in my book, like Patrick Willis. The size of a lineman with the speed of a DB.

I KNEW the GSP inclusion was going to get a lot of folks riled up. The de facto #1? maybe not....but he's certainly right there in the discussion.

I think the one thing that really hurst Fedor is his lack of elite competition in the past 3 years.

Anderson Silva is probably #1....but he should have moved to 205 long ago.

Apparently you just started "following" boxing when the media started slobbering over Manny because he's easy to like in their opinion.

Let's see, who has Manny fought? Well his recent fights were two of Floyd's leftovers (Hatton and DLH), Cotto (a good opponent but has never been the same since the Marg fight, not to mention Manny made him fight at a catch weight), and Clottey (Cotto's leftovers).

Mosley wanted to fight Manny but Roach told Shane that he was too dangerous for Manny... but guess who Floyd is fighting? Yep, the guy who is too dangerous for Manny. Instead, Manny went out and fought a guy he knew he could beat without a problem because he doesn't throw any punches.

And we all saw Floyd absolutely embarrass JMM, who should have won one of the two fights against Pac.

Quit regurgitating the clips you hear on ESPN. Anyone who has followed boxing for some time will tell you that Floyd is the best in the sport right now and it's not going to change anytime soon unless Manny beats him.

Pujols OPS was .70 points higher than Mauers last year. Since you dont watch baseball, ill let you know that .70 pts is a ****load when it comes to OPS. He **** all over mauer's season. ****load more homeruns. 40 more rbis. 4x's the amount of sb's.

at bats with RISP: Mauer 120

both had 99% of the atbats in the 3 spot.

Not going to address defense? Pujols has good defense but Mauer is gonna win gold gloves for years to come.

Pujols had an extra 22 games played (and another 100 plate appearances) on Mauer also, so those numbers (while obviously still in Pujols' favor) are a bit misleading.

Albert is the best in the sport, but Mauer is not too far behind. Better defense and his offense sure as hell isn't "shiitted on" by Pujols.

Also not Mauer's fault if he doesn't have runners in scoring position as much as Pujols. The Twins were having a few problems at the beginning of their lineup for a little while if I recall.

you must of misread, mauer had more ab's with risp than pujols did last year.

additionally, 70 pts higher OPS is getting ****ted on. For example, 70 points OPS is all that seperates Chase Utley from Martin Prado. 70 points OPS is all that seperates Ryan Howard from Billy Butler. 70 points OPS is all that seperates Texiera from Russel branyan.

im sure billy butler is a hell of alot better than Howard on D. you think anyone is going to say he is still right there with howard?
