I'm guessing that it's very close.

The best player, and it's a shame that he sucks so badly in the field, is a healthy Barry Bonds. Being the best hitter in the game makes up quite a bit for his problems with the glove and that ass he wears on his shoulders.

Pujols is next, followed by Vlad.

Well, you didn't say "Best player not suspected of using steroids."

Of course, that would strike Sheffield off of your list, too.

I will have to go with Vlad and Pujols as well, and if someone could get Manny a prescription for Ritalin, he'd be there as well...

Although I do think that ARod is gonna have a bounceback year and could easily move to the top of the list again.

Vlad Guerrero is definitely the best all around.

My top 5 (not in order) is Vlad, David Ortiz, Pujols, Beltran, and Sammy.

Sammy Sosa

In the Sporting News Annual Top 50, he's not even in the top 50 anymore.

Ortiz is nowhere near the top due to zero fielding.

I agree with ARod as well. I'd put him right there after Vlad and Pujols.

I like Vlad a lot as well as Pujols, but I would say A-Rod despite a "down" 2004. Bonds of course would be if he played, but he seems some fragile now and of course isn't playing

Yep, If anyone else is curious, They polled MLB General Managers and Bonds was voted #1 by a wide margin. Thats who would get my vote for best player as well.

Vlad, and it's not really even close IMO. He can hit for average and power, has good speed and we all know how great his arm is.
