A year after I wrote the original list, I figured it was time to update it.
While I was happy with the first list all in all, I feel I did a much better job this time around. The biggest difference you'll find is that I gave struggling veterans with impressive track records less slack and tried to concentrate more on who the best players in the game this season are.
A few notes about the list...
* Of the 100 players, 61 were on last year's list.
* The list features 52 American League players and 48 National League players.
* The team with the most players on the list are the Yankees with eight. The Phillies and Red Sox both have seven players on the list.
* The only teams without a representative on the list are the Astros and Cubs.
Before we get to the list, 20 players considered who just missed the cut:
Bobby Abreu, Elvis Andrus, Jonathan Broxton, David DeJesus, Aubrey Huff, Phil Hughes, Adam Jones, Colby Lewis, Brett Myers, Carl Pavano, Jake Peavy, Placido Polanco, Scott Rolen, Ricky Romero, Max Scherzer, Grady Sizemore, Brian Wilson, Andres Torres, Shane Victorino, Ben Zobrist
Without further ado, the top 100 players in baseball today...
