  1. Bryce Harper

Bryce has been an outstanding player for most of his career. With a .279 batting average 267 home runs and 752 RBIs he’s been a good player his whole career. He has been a great clutch hitter. He’s fast so he can go from 1st to 3rd on a single which could be necessary. Also winning 6× All-Star (2012, 2013, 2015–2018), 2× NL MVP (2015, 2021), All-MLB First Team (2021), NL Rookie of the Year (2012), 2× Silver Slugger Award (2015, 2021), 2× NL Hank Aaron Award (2015, 2021), NL home run leader (2015), Golden Spikes Award (2010). And signing a 13 year $330 million contract shows how good he is.

  1. Max Scherzer 

Max has been a fantastic starter his whole career. With 3,020 strikeouts and a 3.16 ERA and only 389 earned runs his whole career. He has been nothing but outstanding. With his career coming to an end he will be a Hall of Famer and people will remember him for being great.  8× All-Star (2013–2019, 2021), World Series champion (2019), 2× All-MLB First Team (2019, 2021), 3× Cy Young Award (2013, 2016, 2017), 4× wins leader (2013, 2014, 2016, 2018), 3× NL strikeout leader (2016–2018), and pitched two no-hitters in 2015 (June 20 and October 3). He has been a great pitcher for each team he has been on.

  1. Freddie Freeman 

Freddie has been a great player for a long time. He’s been putting up great stats his whole career. With 1,704 hits, 271 home runs, 941 RBIs, and a career average of .295 the rest of his career should be fantastic. Freeman won a Gold Glove Award in 2018, the Silver Slugger Award in 2019, 2020, and 2021, and the National League’s Most Valuable Player Award in 2020. Freeman won the 2021 World Series over the Houston Astros as a member of the Braves. He’s been nothing but great.
