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


Swisher has played a total of two games at CF in his major league career. He'll qualify as LF this year.

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.
I don't play in any leagues that have just OF and never will. It seems pretty lame to me. The draft is much more interesting with the seperate outfield spots. I also like that trading is limited somewhat also. To each their own. It's just not for me.
As far as the thinnest OF spot, I feel it's about a tie between LF and CF. But center field is deeper when you consider speed guys.
Left field drops off really fast after the first 8 or 9.

I'd have to say LF is leaner in my opinion

I think I had left field as the thinnest as well.

At a glance, one may think assume that CF is the thinnest for say, a 12-team league. You guys of the opinion that it's CF this year, have you taken a look at the players by position, or do you just assume that it's CF?

I have to agree with you Dan, its much more interesting and realistic than just lumping OFs together. Ive posted about it before but it rewards the dedicated player much more than the other way.
Couple it with 12t league with divisions that use right schedule (play in div opp 3t other div 1) and two week playoffs and it takes much of the luck out of h2h (weekly changes)
