If Beckham would have kept up his rookie year offense along with his current stellar defense then he could have been that player.

The list of 2013 free agents is pretty sparse big talent/name wise, maybe Granderson or Wright if their options aren't picked up:

Thomas was the greatest hitter in franchise history but was not a media darling and was viewed as surly until now, as he has shown a softer side in broadcasting (no doubt).

Thome's best years were behind him, not that he wasn't good.

Wright or Granderson aren't big enough to do it.
