Face of the Team

I saw this on the AZ Diamondbacks page and thought it was an interesting topic. There is really no 1 absolute right pick and should create some good posts. All MLB teams have a face of the franchise, for the Mets it has been David Wright the last few seasons, and for the Yankees is has been Jeter for a long time. Is it still Wright? Is there an heir apparent? What about the rest of the league?

These are my picks


AZ Diamondbacks- Justin Upton maybe

Atlanta Braves- has been Chipper Jones, but I think it is Jason Heyward this season

Chicago Cubs- is it Matt Garza now, it use to be Carlos Zambrano but I think that is an image that want to lose

Cincy Reds- Joey Votto

Colorado Rockies- Been Todd Helton for awhile, but Troy Tulowitzki would be my choice now

Florida Marlins- Hanley Ramirez

Houston Astros- with Berkman gone is it Hunter Pence, I vote Figgy

LA Dodgers- was Manny, is it Andre Ethier

Milwaukee Brewers- Greinke takes it over from Fielder and Braun

New York Mets- David Wright, but will Ike Davis take it over

Phillies- Ryan Howard

Pirates- Andrew McCutchen

SD Padres- had been Adrian Gonzalez, not sure who grabs it- Orlando Hudson

SF Giants- Tim Lincecum

St. Louis Cards- Albert Pujols

Washington Nationals- Ryan Zimmerman, until Strasburg returns



Baltimore Orioles-Matt Wieters

Boston Red Sox- it has been David Ortiz and Pedroia but my guess is it is Adrian Gonzalez andnot Crawford

Chicago White Sox- Paul Konerko

Cleveland Indians- I think they are hoping Carlos Santana becomes the guy

Detroit Tigers- Miguel Cabrera

KC Royals- Jeff Francouer???? now that Grienke is gone

LA Angels- Kendry Morales

Minnesota Twins- Joe Mauer

NY Yankees- still Jeter

Oakland A's- not sure here either- maybe Hideki Matsui, or a SP

Seattle Mariners- Ichiro

Tampa Bay Rays- Evan Longoria

Toronto Blue Jays- Jose Bautista


I am sure there will be a lot of disagreement, and people I didn't think of, so letthe arguements begin.  I am really unsure about AZ, SD, KC, CLE and OAK.
