2. Jose Altuve

This one shocks a lot of you, so hear me out. Like Biggio, Jose Altuve has made seven All-Star games, but over only 11 seasons. Most people do not realize that he is only 31-years-old, and already has an MVP award, a World Series Championship and three Pennants to his name. Over his career he has an OPS of .821 and a WAR of 41.4. His OPS is higher than Biggio’s but his WAR is lower, for now.

This could change over the course of his career, as he is still in his prime. I think he just barely edges out Biggio right now, but by the end of his career, it will not even be a debate.
