The third member of the Dbacks Franchise Four is also the third member of the 2001 World Series club. Gonzo’s number was the first to be retired in Dbacks history (Johnson will soon join him later this season). Gonzo is a franchise leader in hits, homers, RBI, runs, doubles and walks. And he’s got a stranglehold on those records, that is until the next guy on this list can catch him.

The 5-time All Star broke out in 2001. That season he hit .325 with 57 homers and 142 RBI (all career highs by far). If it wasn’t for two guys named Bonds and Sosa, Gonzo would’ve been the National League MVP. Gonzo is the owner of the most popular play in Arizona Diamondbacks history. His walk off single against Mariano Rivera in Game 7 of the World Series to clinch the club’s 1st and only championship will live on for generations.
