Who are baseball's cornerstones?

If you were starting a franchise and 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 fourth annual Franchise Player Draft.

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

Fans can use the Twitter hashtag #franchisedraft to discuss who they think should or shouldn't have gotten picked.
