Every team has a star player; a face of the franchise. Some teams are lucky enough to have a handful of star players.
Endless arguments can be made regarding where players rank compared to one another, and often it is hard to look past the bias that comes with rooting for your favorite team's players.
With that in mind, here is my take on the top 100 players in the game right now, taking into account their past track record, early season performance in 2012 and whether their career is on the way up or the way down.
*Note: Since this is titled Top 100 players "right now," you will not find on this list guys like Jacoby Ellsbury, Victor Martinez, Ryan Howard, Chris Carpenter and others who are either going to miss the entire season or will at least have their season significantly shortened by injury.
