Berkman and Oswalt on list of players released by The Sporting News

No. Not that list. This list.

Lance Berkman was 21st, Oswalt 46th, on The Sporting News' 50 Best Players in Baseball Today, chosen by a panel of 100 Hall of Famers, major award winners and other baseball personalities - which includes 13 Hall of Famers, 13 Cy Young Award winners and 12 league MVPs. Among the MLB legends who filled out ballots for SN: Willie McCovey, Stan Musial, Brooks Robinson, Tony Gwynn, Tom Seaver, Rollie Fingers and Greg Maddux. .

Your top ten:
1. Albert Pujols
2. Alex Rodriguez
3. Johan Santana
4. Manny Ramirez
5. Hanley Ramirez
6. Chase Utley
7. Roy Halladay
8. Derek Jeter
9. Mariano Rivera
10. Chipper Jones

And two of those first four names are why PEDs have prevailed in baseball over the last fifteen years. Way to hold the line, guys.
