2. David Ortiz, Red Sox
This was the toughest position to rank. A lot went into Ortiz's placement at No. 2: He still puts up huge numbers, the Red Sox have struggled in games without him, and he's the public face of the franchise. His contributions to the 2004 World Series team will forever cement him in Red Sox lore. Combine that with the fact that he's still hitting home runs and still smiling, and he gets the edge over the young Gronkowski.
