This is a TALL order. Deciding on who is the best player of all time for each MLB team is like trying to decide who the best soldier was in each of America’s wars. There’s absolutely no way to get everyone to agree. I’m just hoping my choices will be made as objectively as possible.

Not only am I ranking the best for each team, but I am also charged with ranking each of those players against one another. It’s sort of like a ranking within a ranking. The rankings will include players from present day all the way back to the early days of each franchise.

I’m going to throw a little spoiler in here right now. Cy Young did not make the cut. You’re probably thinking that I’m some sort of nimrod, which I may very well be. My explanation is simple: Cy Young never stayed with one team long enough to be that team’s all-time greatest player. Go figure.
