A rising star with the Royals, then a bonafide star with the Houston Astros, Carlos Beltrán elevated his game in the playoffs and elevated his star power with a trade to the New York Mets in 2005. Now one of the key pieces to one of the elite teams in Major League Baseball, Beltrán is among the more well-known players in the game today. His legacy is still being hammered out, but a world series ring would go a long way toward solidifying his superstar status. His $119 million dollar contract, among the most lucrative in MLB history, is certainly deserving of a spot on some important list.
