Potential Free Agent Center Fielders

Some more Fielding stats:


I tried to keep the list to only players who played a reasonable number of games in Center this year, but let slide those who had a Rate in line with their career average.

Lance: Damn... these guys are all hopeless with the bat, or unable to really play CF, or throw like a girl (see Damon, Johnny). Sigh....


If the Padres plan to look to the free agent market for a Center Fielder, I hope they try to sign Lofton.

My understanding is that Lofton's defense has slipped a bit in recent years. I can't shake the feeling that he'd be every bit as frustrating to watch out there as Roberts has been.

I guess if he came cheaply, but I wouldn't want to see the Pads spend more than what Roberts made this year.

Richard, if you'd kept the list to players who can actually play CF (especially in Petco), it would have been a much shorter list.

Damn, Richard, I think we're gonna have to link to her blog. It's not as if she's a Dodger fan, after all.
