45. Michael Cuddyer (Rockies career WAR 4.3)

Cuddy was so much more valuable than what the stats can convey. The way he was able to keep a clubhouse loose and having fun to play entertaining baseball is immeasurable. The fans in Denver only got to enjoy three seasons of his 15 years of play, but he was able to make some bad teams watchable, culminating in the 2013 season where he slashed .331/.389/.530 with 31 HR and 84 RBI for an OPS+ of 136 and 2.1 WAR. He also won the National League batting title and Silver Slugger as a right fielder. He never had less than 102 OPS+ while averaging six outfield assists and committing only four outfield errors total as a Rockie.
