MLB's best impact older players
Projecting which aging stars can still make an impact in 2013
What if you had been asked in 2003 -- following the greatest season since 1950 for aging hitters -- which position players in their prime would be the best bets to go into 2013 still going strong?
You probably would have predicted Derek Jeter, but Nomar Garciaparra and Miguel Tejada would have been in the same sentence. Ichiro Suzuki would have come to mind, but so would Bobby Abreu, Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez.
No matter who you picked, you would have been mostly wrong, and through no fault of your own. It's just the worst time in decades for older hitters.
To see which older players still have something left in the tank, become an ESPN Insider today.
