Pie on Rob Neyers top 10 CF list.

Neyer has been ranking his candidates of the best players by position for the next 5 years. (the player needs to be under 30) Our friend Felix has made his list of center fielders.

This requires "insider" access; I have posted a link for those who have access and the list from his blog below.

Rob Neyer CF's for the next 5 years

Is he worthy?


  1. B.J. Upton
  2. Curtis Granderson
  3. Grady Sizemore
  4. Hunter Pence
  5. Chris Young
  6. Carlos Beltran
  7. Melky Cabrera
  8. Felix Pie
  9. Josh Hamilton
  10. Jay Bruce
Perhaps I've been too aggressive here with the youngest players. I do feel good about Upton, but the others -- Young, Cabrera, Pie -- really haven't been good yet in the majors. Hamilton's obviously a wild card, and perhaps there should be a place on this list for Wells. Meanwhile, there are a bunch of hot center fielders coming up, and so I've strayed from convention and filled in that last slot myself. It just seems to me that when you've got a player who's the consensus No. 1 prospect, he's your guy. Better, though, over the next five years than Wells and Rowand?
