If Rangers center fielder Josh Hamilton were standing in the ESPN offices right now, he'd surely plead for all of his teammates to top the Cross-Sport Power Rankings with him. Sorry, Captain Humble, this is a ranking of athletic individuals and you're getting all the credit. Over the past week, Hamilton went 4-for-10 with two homers to help take Texas to its first World Series in franchise history. Because of this, our all-star panel agreed that the slugger deserved to be No. 1.

Rounding out the top five is Giants home run hero Juan Uribe at No. 2, Heisman favorite Cam Newton at No. 3, NLCS MVP Cody Ross at No. 4 and interception machine DeAngelo Hall at No. 5.

Did the panel make the right decisions this week? See anyone who was placed way too high, unjustly low or whom we flat-out missed? Now is your chance to let us know in the comments below!
