MLB: Franchise Players at Each Position

Recently I was approached by Bleacher Report about taking part in a mock franchise draft. The gist was that we simulate a 30-team draft, and each pick is for an MLB player you would want to start a franchise with. I thought the idea was great, and kudos to Eli Marger for coming up with it.

While thinking of who to pick, I started to sift through who I thought was tops at each position. And so, I came up with my own article idea to list who I think the top players are, at each position, to start a franchise with.

I selected each candidate on the following criteria:

General stats (offense and defense)

Injury history

Intangibles (age, playoff experience, personality, contract, etc.)

As you can suspect, the following slides are a list of those players selected. While reading, remember, it isn't who's the best at each position. That would be too easy. It's who makes the best franchise player at each position.
