Here is my list of the top 100 franchise players in Major League Baseball. The word franchise is important; this isn’t a list of the 100 best players in baseball, or even of the 100 best players five years from now. These are the players listed in order of “if all 30 teams held a league wide draft, in what order would all the players be picked”? As a result, there will be a mix of extremely young and talented players with the seasoned veterans. Along with being really good at baseball, it is perhaps most important that the top picks in this draft show exemplary leadership skills.
