We are about 12 hours from the Super Bowl as I write this, and I'm sitting here puzzling about who, in major league baseball, might have had the right stuff to play in the Super Bowl:

1. Carl Crawford. He is 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds and built like Larry Fitzgerald. He has the speed of Chris Johnson. He was recruited to play quarterback at Nebraska. Gold Glove-caliber hands.

2. Kyle Farnsworth. I'm envisioning a middle linebacker. Does anybody in baseball tackle better than the longtime reliever? (See some links here.)
