#1. Buster Posey
When all is said in done, Posey might be on the Mount Rushmore of Catchers. Johnny Bench and Yogi Berra are the top-tier of catchers in baseball history. Both are hall of famers as much because of their numbers on the field as the World Series trophies they helped win. Posey now has 3 World Series trophies he has helped win in his four healthy seasons.
Posey has a 23.3 WAR since his debut in 2010, by far the most for any hitter since that first championship season.
His ability to catch the incredible staff the Giants have had throughout the run is another reason he has shown to be the most valuable player in the last five years.
Posey has a Rookie of the Year trophy, Comeback Player of the Year, Most Valuable Player, as well as a batting title, two Silver Slugger awards, The Hank Aaron award, the Willie Mac award and a two-time All-Star.
The scary part is that he is only 27 and so he is just entering his prime.
