What the REAL Franchise Four for each team should be

Did MLB get it right? We don't think so.

Recently, the MLB and it's 30 teams released its Franchise Four for each team, but they incorrectly selected the players. I've corrected their errors. Now, I know there will be some divisiveness over who've (which might actually be a word) I've selected, but I want you to know that I've painstakingly agonized over each selection and I stand by my decisions. They are based on stats and other undefinable characteristics such as charisma, looks, and will. All players will be eligible as long as they played at least one game in the team's uniform, but extra credit will be given if they've played for the team in two different stints.
