B/R Writers Draft Players to Build an MLB Franchise Around

If you could choose one baseball player to build a franchise around, who would it be?

This is the question that I posed to 27 other Bleacher Report Featured Columnists, and one that we will attempt to answer.

The 28 of us conducted a mock draft of sorts, each selecting a player who we would choose to build our team around. The choices came from far and wide—a 19-year-old who has yet to play in the majors, a 34-year-old seasoned veteran, an embattled superstar.

Yet, each choice was made with a reason, and the columnist who chose that player also will provide an explanation for the choice. You may agree with all of these choices, or you may agree with none of them. Either way, we'd love to hear your feedback.

Enjoy the Bleacher Report Featured Columnist Mock Draft.
