I recently read lists ranking the best players in the game today by the Sporting News and Sports Illustrated.
I had some major problems with both lists, so I decided to take on the challenge of making a list myself.
This list is assuming all players are healthy. This is why you'll still see Jake Peavy and Brandon Webb on here.
I considered both what the players are doing this season, as well as their stats from seasons past, with a slight favoring to what is happening this year. This is why Zach Greinke is only a little higher ranked than CC Sabathia.
If there is someone not on the list you feel I've forgotten, please say so but do keep in mind how many good players there are in the game today. I ask all criticism be constructive.
Before I get to the list itself, 20 who just missed the cut...
Mike Napoli, James Loney, Orlando Hudson, Dan Uggla, Alexei Ramirez, Brandon Inge, Scott Rolen, Ian Stewart, Johnny Damon, Michael Bourn, Jermaine Dye, Ben Zobrist, Ubaldo Jimenez, Carlos Zambrano, Wandy Rodriguez, Jair Jurrjens, Matt Garza, Jarrod Washburn, Joakim Soria, Andrew Bailey
