Pretty much everyone who doesn't start "MORE!!!! BETTER!!!" threads.
Since you broke out the "reality" card, how many 5 tool players are there currently in MLB? Hit for average and power, steal or at least have very good speed, great arm and can cover ground like no one else then actually catch the ball?
I'll help. First thing you do is eliminate anyone not in the middle of the field. So you're left with CF, 2B and SS. There are rougly 360 position players on BL rosters at any given time. So, when you get to 36. you can stop listing players and I'll concede that you're right, that we need more super studs in HBD.
Which, by the way, he named zero. Off the top of my head, I could think of two. Hamilton, who seems to be transitioning out of CF and Trout, who's had one season in the bigs so it might be a fluke. Cano doesn't steal, Reyes doesn't hit homers, Kinsler has a low BA(and, it appears, suspect fielding).
There just aren't that many guys in the bigs or even in the history of the bigs that do it all.
