Power Rankings: Top 15 First Basemen in the Majors

3. Anthony Rizzo (Chicago Cubs)

Get ready everybody, this will be Anthony Rizzo’s first (of many) MVP campaigns. Rizzo finished 10th in MVP voting this year but never truly had a chance because the Cubs were so bad. This is no longer the case. Chicago’s prospects that we have been waiting for are seemingly ready to pop soon. Javier Baez and Jorge Soler have already arrived, so now we have to wait for Addison Russell and Kris Bryant.

Short story shorter, the Cubs are ready to be good, and will soon be great, and Anthony Rizzo could be the face of it all.

    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.
