List Rules Please only rank the players based on their time with the Diamondbacks

This is a list of the greatest Arizona Diamondbacks ever. Along with the Tampa Bay Rays, the Arizona Diamondbacks are baseball's youngest franchise. However, this doesn't mean that the franchise is devoid of talent or Hall of Fame players. In 2001, the club made history when it defeated the New York Yankees in seven games to win its first World Series after only three years of existence. Many of the best players in Diamondbacks history were on that championship team including two of the best Diamondbacks ever in pitchers Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling. The Diamondbacks dynamic duo almost singlehandedly mowed down hitters en route to the franchise's only championship. They are considered two of the greatest pitchers of their generation and the city was fortunate to have them as members of the Arizona Diamondbacks roster for years.

Luis Gonzalez is considered the greatest hitter to don Diamondbacks colors. Like the rest of the franchise, Gonzalez's best season came in 2001 when he had an eye-opening 57 home runs, 142 RBIs along with 100 walks. Looking to follow in Gonzalez's footsteps is Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt. Already one of baseball's feared hitters, Goldschmidt's breakout 2013 campaign landed him a berth in the All Star game in only his third season. He is already considered one of the greatest Diamondbacks to play the game.
