Power Rankings: Top 15 First Basemen in the Majors

4. Jose Abreu (Chicago White Sox)

Jose Abreu had one of the best rookie campaigns I have ever seen. A lot of problems have come from some international prospects moving to America and playing in the big leagues right away. I don’t think anyone could convince me that Abreu wasn’t ready. The ROY got his first All-Star under his break already, finished third in the AL in HR and RBI, and wound up fourth in MVP voting. Going forward, I fully expect that the White Sox addition of one of the more talented first baseman of the last 10 years (Adam LaRoche) will make Jose Abreu into a future MVP.

    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.
