2009 Free Fantasy Baseball Player Rankings (OF)

Tagged:  •    •    •    •  

Howdy All, The OF spot in fantasy is where you fill up your teams needs. Most leagues require that you field 5 outfielders. That would be funny if they did that in real baseball. The re is a lot of talent roaming the outfield, but you got to remeber Who knows what you will find lurking in the OF.Who knows what you will find lurking in the OF.that it will go fast because everyone needs five. I feel that you probably want to lock up 3 good OF's on your team, and then take some chances with the last two spots. Every year we see people break out like Quentin, or prospects come up to provide a spark. So you will be able to fill your needs with those types of players. If someone isn't working out, don't sit on them to long, because you will need to act fast to grab the next stud off the waiver wire.Now lets get to the list and see what gems we can find lurking out there. 

 Rank  OF  Comment
 1  Grady Sizemore  Grady is what you call an all around player. He is Mr. 30-30 man. It would be great if he could get that average up, but you really can't complain.
 2  Ryan Braun Braun is very very good. 40 homers and 15 steals in the book. He also will throw in a .300 average too. Me likes.
 3  Josh Hamilton  The comeback kid last year was unreal. Some people think he slowed down in the 2nd half, but he really didn't. Texas' offense is just too good and the RBI's will be yummy.
 4  Carlos Beltran Beltran is A+ in every category. Steals, Homers, Rbis, Runs, Avg. He has them all.
 5  B.J. Upton  B.J. is very hard to read. One season the power is there the next its not. I think he is truly healthy this year and the power will come back. The guy is a stud.
 6  Alfonso Soriano  He was limited by minor injuries last year but still put up 29 homers and 19 steals. He loves Wrigley and they love him too.
 7  Manny Ramirez  Manny finally signed his big deal, and is back on the field. I think he will be motivated to provide his usually amazing stats. Its just Manny being Manny.
 8  Carlos Lee  This horse likes to prance with the best of them. Minute Maid park is perfect for this one.
 9  Matt Kemp  Kemp fought for playing time last year, and finally proved to the bonehead Torre that he is an everyday player. He has wheels and power to match. I expect big things.
 10  Nick Markakis  Nick the stick is a young hitter in the making. Such a smooth stroke, and mixes in a little bit of speed. He has talked of running more. Lets hope its true.
 11  Carl Crawford  Ok, we should probably realize the power isn't there. He is dissaopointed with his play last year and vows to really improve. 50 steals will go straight to your bottom line.
 12  Jason Bay  Bay got traded to Bean Town and never stopped hitting. They might miss Manny's crazy attitude, but they won't miss his bat with Bay in town. This boy can run too.
 13  Matt Holliday  Ohhh No! No more thin air for Mr. Holliday. He is a good enough hitter though to overcome that. His homers will drop, but not by that much.
 14  Ichiro  Avg, Speed, Avg Speed. That’s what you get here.
 15  Alex Rios  What a confusing player. For half the season he couldn't buy a homer, but steals were plenty. Then in the 2nd half he completely reversed that. Hopefully he can put it all together this year.
 16  Vlad  Vlad is old, and gets kicked up a lot. He still is going to hit anything close to the plate. A good player to have that will probably slip farther than he should.
 17  Nate McLouth  McLouth is a very streaky hitter. He has visions of 30-30 though. If he can do that, you won't be sorry.
 18  Curtis Granderson  It looks like Grandeson is now going to have the wheels we thought. Sure he'll get 15 bags, but not much more. He does balance it out with 25 homers though.
 19  Jacoby Ellsbury  I feel he is slightly overrated this year. He is going high in drafts, but really shouldn't be. Sure he will run a lot, but very few homers will come your way. I would rather have a more balanced player.
 20 Bobby Abreau Everyone thinks he is washed up. No way Jose. This guy is a consistent 20-20 threat every year. He will fit in well on the Angels.
 21  Corey Hart  He proved he doesn't need sunglasses to be cool. 20-20 is how cool he is.
 22  Magglio Ordonez  Chicks dig the curls, and I dig the homers and the average.
 23  Alexei Ramirez  From nothing, to greatness in one year. The Cuba defect exploded on the scene last year with 21 homers and 13 steals. He strikes out a lot, and is a free swinger but  his power is for real. In a position where it is hard to find 20 homer pop, you can't go wrong here.
 24  Hunter Pence Hunter was lost in April last year but picked it up the rest of the season. He isn't going to run as much but should provide plenty of everything else.
 25  Adam Dunn  40,40,40,40. That's the homer total for the last 4 years. Do you think he does it on purpose?
 26  Torii Hunter  Hunter is on the way down in his career, but he is still a 20-20 threat.
 27  Ryan Ludwick  Where in the hell did that come from last year? He is a good hitter, but don't expect the same homer total as last year. Probably around 28 homers I would say.
 28  Andre Ethier  When Manny got to town he really turned it on. He now has the insurance of the crazy guy every day. Expect big things.
 29 Lastings Milledge  This young prospect has the hopes of D.C. on his shoulder. I think he has it in him.
 30  Jay Bruce He is young, he is awesome. In 1 more year, he will probably be in the top 10 on the list. Just not this year. 
 31  Nelson Cruz  Cruz was unreal in AAA last year. Some call him a 4 A player. He proved them wrong and hit really well in the last month. He is penciled in at the 4th spot. Watch out!
