But generally looking over the outfielders at this point in baseball - its a pretty weak group. There is not a single outfielder in this group that you can say is going to put up 110/40/120/10/.300, and its been a long time since one could say that. The power has definitely shifted to the infield positions. In fact, I don't know that I would take any outfielder in the first round.
Braun and Quentin could both put those numbers up, or at least get close.
Hamilton could too if he's close to fully healthy or at full health the whole season.
I don't think Holliday is a massive risk as some make him out to be, but his upside more or less is tempered either way. I can see Holliday topping out at a 30 HR, 15 SB, .310 BA but I don't envision anything beyond that.
