Let's take a break from all of this PED mudslinging and get back to appreciating what some of MLB's most naturally gifted baseball players are doing on the field.

For every five-tool athlete like Ryan Braun or Alex Rodriguez who might have used steroids, there are at least a dozen other players like Albert Pujols and Mike Trout who are clean as a whistle and talented as heck.

I'll spend the next two slides explaining my criteria for identifying a naturally gifted player before listing them out position-by-position and offering my two cents on some of the players listedas well as some notable names who missed the cut.
