It is virtually impossible for 1 player to be the league’s best hitter for average, power hitter, and base runner while also being a master defender with a gun for an arm. But that is what the ’5-Tool Player’ is all about.
I thought it would be fun to build the ’5-Tool Player’ using these 5 characteristics from today’s group of baseball superstars.
There is only 1 rule – you cannot use the same player for 2 of these attributes. If your power hitter is also your best defender it’s time to dig a little deeper and re-tool your player.
Send me your picks!!!
Here is my ‘robot’:
Power Hitter – Ryan Howard
Hitter for Average – Albert Pujols
Base Runner – Ichiro
Defensive Presence – Nate McLouth
Arm Power and Accuracy – Jeff Francoeur
