Is one OF position more "scarce" than the others?

Postby vykeengfan » Sat Mar 24, 2007 8:39 pm

I'm in a league w/ LF, CF, and RF instead of general OF. Is one more scarce than the others?
Thanks

Center is much more scarce than the others. You should bump Beltran and Sizemore up in your ranking slightly

Ive been playing that format for years and I believe this is the first year that I consider LF the thinnist of the three positions. There just is no depth at all this year in LF. Yea theres more top guys but it drops off much faster than other two positions.

CF is by far the toughest to find offense.

Cf should be considered just like SS/2b. Its not to be expected to have 7/8 40 hr guys because of the physical requirements of position.

i always used to think CF was the thinnest OF position, but after actually playing in one of those LF CF RF leagues, i realized LF is the thinnest.

and we don't play with those settings anymore. we tried it one year thinking it'll add more strategy and trades, but all it did was restrict trades possibilities.

Each group has its disadvantes and advantages, but I agree with the above poster...treat your CF as your 2b/ss and treat your LF&RF as your 1b/3b
