Among current major leaguers, which player would you pick to build a team around?

Alex Rodriguez, Yankees 3B .......14%
Derek Jeter, Yankees SS .......12%
Jose Reyes, Mets SS .......8%
David Wright, Mets 3B .......6%
Ryan Howard, Phillies 1B .......5%
Hanley Ramirez, Marlins SS .......5%
Albert Pujols, Cardinals 1B .......5% 
Miguel Cabrera, Tigers 3B .......4%  
Chase Utley, Phillies 2B .......4% 
Johan Santana, Mets SP .......4%  

[Based on a survey of 495 MLB players] 

FAST FACTS: Players could not vote for a teammate.... Rodriguez won the AL MVP last season for the third time.... Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, the 2007 NL MVP, was 14th (2.0%).... Mets lefthander Johan Santana (10th, 4%) was the only pitcher -- and the Dodgers' Russell Martin (16th, 1.7 %) was the only catcher -- to receive more than 1% of the vote.

This is an expanded MLB poll from the June 16, 2008 issue of Sports Illustrated.
