Best players of an era

When I sit back and take an overall glance over baseball throughout history certain names pop out to you as the best players of certain eras. You have your Babe Ruth, Mantle, Musial, etc. etc. etc…. I am 27 years old so I do not have a great depth of seeing the best that ever played, but I ponder who I have had the opportunity to see in their prime who will be talked about 20, 30, 70 years from now. I believe it has to be a short list as you cannot just list players that were good, but legend (wait for it) dairy… If I had to go with the 5 best players of my time (so far, god willing) I would say : Ichiro, Pujols, Jeter, Thomas, Randy Johnson. Am I wrong? Who would you say?
