Ranked too high:

Luis Gonzalez...(way to high for me)
Trot Nixon
Mike Cameron
Reggie Sanders


Ranked too low:

Mench
Kearns

I would also take Damon and Berkman before Giles...

Finley also deserves much more love .... he's a definite top 35 outfielder. Good luck! ;-D

I agree with Soop, Finley is way too low.

What is Berkman doing so high? He will not be ready for the begining of the season and should not be nearly that high.

Pierre, Hunter, Winn and Finley should be up a little and Anderson, Rowand and Cameron should be lower.

Why shouldn't he be? I wouldn't particularly worried about him missing a lot of time. Remember Beltran missing a month in '03? Didn't hurt his numbers much ... he just ended up with 102 runs, 26 HR, 100 RBI, and 41 steals. ;-)

Berk has torn ACL and ligaments. His few SB will be gone and his average will be down as well. He is being replaced by Jason Lane who only need PT to thrive so there will be no need to rush Berk back. He will be fine by the end of the year but you better have a pretty good replacement for the first half of the season IMO.

He should not be ranked ahead of Gonzo, Pierre, Damon, Andruw, Winn or Hunter.

What are you talking about?? :-? The Houston outfield depth chart right now is:
LF- Biggio, Orlando Palmeiro
CF- Lane, Orlando Palmeiro
RF- Orlando Palmeiro, Lance Berkman

Lane has absolutely nothing to do with when Berkman will come back .... they don't even play the same outfield position. And don't even start with Palmeiro either ;-) . All he was brought in to do this season was to be a 4th outfielder, and to back up all 3 outfield spots. Berkman will miss one month tops, and the baseball season spans 6-7 months. That's only around 15% of the season right there, which means your "you better have a pretty good replacement for the first half of the season" is wrong too, because 15% is nowhere near 50% last time I checked. Even if his BA does drop, it'll be to around .305 only, nothing more .... and noone drafts him for his 9 SB either, but they draft him for 100+ runs, 25+ HR, and 100+ RBI.
