11) Carlos Zambrano - decent hitter
12) Mark Loretta
13) Roger Clemens - with the Astros

Preliminary

1. Barry Bonds
2. Adrian Beltre - easy MVP in any other season where Bonds doesn't have a .609 OBP

3. Albert Pujols - post-season heroics lift him up
4. Scott Rolen - disappeared in post-season

5. J.D. Drew
6. Todd Helton
7. Jim Edmonds
8. Ichiro - best player in AL
9. Randy Johnson - best pitcher in MLB
10. Johan Santana - best pitcher in AL; pitched well in division series

11. A-Rod - put up a not widely discussed .320/.414/.600 post-season line despite Yanks' epic choke (by comparison, Mr. Clutch Derek Jeter hit .200/.333./.233 in the ALCS)
12. Carlos Beltran - huge in post-season, gets solid bump; good all-around season regardless
13. Miguel Tejada
14. Lance Berkman
15. Melvin Mora


Bobby Abreu, Vlad Guerrero, Ben Sheets, Curt Schilling, David Ortiz, Carlos Zambrano just miss the cut
