While every MLB team might have a star player, not every star player can say that their team winds up in contention for a playoff spot.
Yet you can be sure that each of the teams contending for a playoff berth has more than one star player, whether it be two bats or a bat and a pitcher.
There's no way we'll agree on who the top 50 players on these contenders are. Chances are, we won't agree on who the contenders are, either.
But we'll not only look at what these players are doing in 2012, we'll take a look back at how some of these players have performed in prior postseasons as well.
While the Brewers, Diamondbacks and Phillies are technically still alive in the playoff picture, all three were not considered for this article due to how many teams they need to pass by in order to get in.
Unless noted otherwise, all statistics are prior to any games being played on Sept. 11.
