Power Rankings: Top 15 First Basemen in the Majors

1. Miguel Cabrera (Detroit Tigers)

Do I really have to write anything here? Miguel Cabrera has dominated this league over the last 10 years.

Since 2004, Miggy has hit no fewer than 25 HR and never less than 100 RBI either. He has been included in MVP voting every year of his career, and has only not been an All-Star twice since 2004. Excluding his rookie year, his hit for less than a .300 BA only twice (.292, .294). He has been the AL MVP twice and has finished in the top five of voting seven times. In 2012, Cabrera was the first player to hit for a triple crown since 1967. I can keep rattling off more and more stats, but the scariest of them all may be the fact that Cabrera had a “bad year” in 2014, and still hit 25 HR, 109 RBI, and boasted a .313 BA.

    Ridiculous Pujols is not considered to be in the top 15 first baseman in baseball today. Have his numbers slipped, certainly but to not rank him in the top 15 is freaking insulting and just flat out stupid.

      He is in the top 15. That’s what the “On the Bubble” is on the first page.

      Thanks for the feedback though. Seems like we might be on the same page

    I don’t know why you did not rank Morneau higher on the list. Not only did he win the 2014 NL BA crown, but he is an excellent defender at 1B.

      It’s funny that you say that because I actual just had an entire discussion where I had to defend having Morneau on the list at all. If it’s any consolation, Morneau is #11.
