Major League Baseball is promoting an effort to identify the best four players in each team’s history with their "Franchise Four." We selected our choices for Mt. Rushmores a few years ago. Here are updated versions for all 30 teams. Who are the four baseball players that have risen above all others for each organization? The question sounds simple, right? Not so fast. Let the arguments begin.

Best Picks from 50 Years of the MLB Draft

Who are the best draft selections at each spot?
Who is the best player drafted No. 1 overall? Griffey? A-Rod? Chipper? What about the best player selected No. 10 overall? The best at each spot are all here from No. 1 through 40.

With the MLB Draft this week, it’s fun to look back at the some of the best picks over the past 50 years of the draft. Here’s the best selection at each of the first 40 positions in the draft.

 

1 Ken Griffey Jr., Seattle, 1987

Certainly there are numerous No. 1 overall selections worthy of being named the best. But I’ll take Griffey over Chipper Jones, Alex Rodriguez and David Price.

Best of the 2000s: David Price, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 2007

MLB Mt. Rushmores

2011 MLB Preview

5 Things to Watch in 2011
<p> Athlon Sports previews the upcoming 2011 MLB season and provides the 5 most interesting storylines heading into Opening Day, including Derek Jeter's quest for 3,000 hits, the Philadelphia Phillies starting rotation and the return of Stephen Strasburg.</p>

1. Best rotation in history?

It might have been the most mind-bending free agent decision ever. Of all the teams to sign Clifton Phifer Lee, who would have guessed it would be the Philadelphia Phillies? After all, the Phillies had traded Lee last December, and loaded up on two other expensive aces, Roy Halladay and Roy Oswalt. Why would they need another No. 1 starter? And why would Lee return to the team that rejected him — for $28 million less than the Yankees offered to pay him?
