    I mostly agree, except I think Torii Hunter is a much better defensive talent than Nelson Cruz. Switch the two and it looks good.

    Hey Tony – You may be right.The only thing that kept me from putting Torii in the outfield over Cruz is he has yet to play a full year in right field. Cruz’s UZR numbers in right were a little bit better than Torii’s were in his limited time last year.

    With a full off season and spring to learn the postion and get used to the angles in right Torii could become an elite right fielder.
