Could Derek Jeter be on the list?
This list will obviously only have first round picks on it, a Compensation pick might be on the list.
Comment back if you have a better list, and at the end there will be a Honarable Mention list.
In making this list I took everything into count, World Championships, All Star appearences and statistical achievements. And if you tested positive after 2003 for HGH you willn't be on the list.
BA . 309
One of the greatest third basemen and one of the most prolific switch hitters of all time. Chipper has been the toast of Atlanta for a decade and a half now, he was one of the key peices of the Braves impressive reign in the 90's and early 2000's.
Chipper captured the 1999 NL MVP and since then has been probably the best thridbasemen of our era.
The Milwaukee King Robin Yount is at number 9, he is no doubt the greatest Brewer of all time. He holdsthe Brewers record for most Games, Hits, HR, Doubles, RBI amoung other categories, he is one of those players that had to learn on the job as he broke in the bigs at age 18.
He in his Hall Of Fame career collected 2 NL MVP awards, 3,000 Hits and over 1,500 runs scored. His numbers looking at them straight up might not be as good as Chippers but if you consider the fact that he had to learn on the job from age 18, the fact that he was never a middle of the line up hitter like Chipper then you will see that he belongs in this spot.
The Big Hurt checks in at No. 8, this slugger was one of the most prolific bats of the 90's. After his first season in the bigs he had a chain were he had 8 straight seasons of 25+ HR and 100 RBI.
More impressive he wasn't your prototypical meat head power hitter 9 times in the 90's he had a .BA over .300 and 9 times a OBP over .400%. The Big Hurt din't stop in the 21st Century 5 times in the 2000's he hit over 20 HR and 2 times he connected for over 40 HR. One of the most impressive seasons of all time for the big hurt is when he belted 38 HR IN ONLY 113 GAMES.
The greatest athlete in the history of MLB, Dave Winfield did MLB a huge favor by deciding to play baseball and not football or basketball because without a doubt Winfield would have excelled in any sport. Winfield went to the mid summer classic 12 times and captured the Gold Glove 7 times. Dave drove in over 100 runs 8 times and clobbered 20+ HR 15 times.
All of that and still put up a solid .283 .BA he was able to maintain his body and played until he was 43.
Mr. October checks in as the 6th greatest 1st round pick, Reggie had as big as a bat as you can have he in his first 13 full seasons hit 20+ HR 13 times and knocked in 100 runs 5 times.
Seven times he put up a OPS over .900 and 10 times he put up a Slug% over .500%. Reggie was a All Star 14 times and was Champion 5 times, just throw in over 500 HR, over 2,500 hits, a AL MVP and over 1,700 RBI you got yourself a Hall Of Famer.
One of the most professional hitters of all time, when I look at Moliter's stats the thing that I find so amazing is that he played 150+ Games 8 times in his 21 year career and he still managed to collect over 3,000 hits.
He had over 200 hits 4 times so that tells you when he was playing he was consistent and not having a trend of bad year and then a good year.
He drove in 100+ runs 2 times and still got over 1,300 RBI, consistency that was what Paul was all about.
He certaintly has to be in consideration as one of the greatest pitchers of all time, he has the all time record for most Cy Youngs (7), over 300 wins, 3,000 K's, and over 100 CG.
Now pretty much everyone that follows baseball thinks he used the roids but it hasn't been proven yet.
Personally, I was never a Clemens fan but untill the guy is convicted he is what the numbers say he is one of the top 10 greatest pitchers of all time and the 4th greatest 1st rounder of all time.
Well Barry Bonds is your 3rd greatest first rounder of all time, the all time HR king has hit 20 HR or more 19 times.
He is another one that people think juiced but he hasn't tested positive, he is another one that isn't one of my favorites but he has to be respected until they find any kind of proof against him.
He will be eligible for the Hall Of Fame in another couple of years it will be interesting to see if they don't find anything to use against Bonds if the voters will vote Barry into the hall.
Well the total package A-Rod checks in at number 2, he is the most talented player in the bigs today.
Now I understand Pujols is the best player but Alex is the most talented there's a difference because he has all the tools. He is on pace to break the all time HR record, the all time RBI record and still have a.BA over .300.
Unfortunately the steroids do hurt his achievements a bit.
The Kid leads the list as the greatest first rounder of all time, Ken Griffey, Jr. rule the 90's with a iron fist. What Ken wanted to do o the field he did and n one stopped him, during the 90's Griffey blasted 382 HR and 1091 RBI.
All of that earned him a spot on he All Century Team, Griffey symbolizes what a hard worker and what a baseball player is and in a era where players used HGH it only makes his career shine more.
