Jeter is baseball's biggest Web star in terms of Google hits. Among longtime Yankees, his .314 career batting average is bested only by guys with names like Ruth, Gehrig and DiMaggio. Look for Jeter to retire a Yankee and for his No. 2 uniform to be permanently retired alongside the No. 3, No. 4, and No. 5 of the players above.

Bonds has been baseball's biggest name in print and broadcast media outlets over the past year, but not necessarily for the best reasons. Steroid-testing news and injuries have dominated the media's 2005 coverage of Bonds, who is only 52 home runs shy of Hank Aaron's career home run record. Bonds should return to baseball in August and possibly break Aaron's record in 2006.
Power Rank: 4
Right field, Baltimore Orioles
Sosa, in the last year of a 4-year, $72 million contract, is in the midst of the worst start of his 17-year career, with a .229 batting average and 9 home runs.

Power Rank: 5
Left field, Boston Red Sox
