All 30 MLB Team's Most Indispensable Player in 2014
Gene Puskar/Associated Press

What does the term "indispensable" really mean when used in sports vernacular?

In my mind, a team's most indispensable player is not necessarily their best overall player, but rather he is the one guy they can't succeed without.

The following article is my take on each MLB team's most indispensable player, and in order to determine who received that honor I asked my self one simple question: which player would be the most devastating loss for his team if he were to hit the disabled list for an extended period of time?

A case can certainly be made for a handful of guys on each team, so I have done my best to fully justify each selection, and I look forward to hearing about how each team's respective fan base feels regarding my selections in the comments section.
