Who's your cornerstone?

If you were starting a franchise and you could pick any player in professional baseball, who would be your franchise player? That's the question we asked 30 of our resident baseball "experts," who participated in ESPN's third annual Franchise Player Draft.

With the annual first-year player draft only three days away, several of our experts will discussed and debated baseball's "franchise players" during a live, three-hour chat. The draft order was randomly selected, and the picks were unveiled every five minutes.

Fans can use the Twitter hashtag #franchisedraft to continue the discussion about who got picked and who got snubbed.
