What no voting option for Rocco?


I would vote Sizemore as my top center fielder in the American League right now.

I'll go VWells. Though, some consideration could be made for Matthews this year.

Wells right now, but Sizemore could be in a couple years.

I'd say Sizemore. He does everything.
Kudos to GiantsFan14 for the sig.

VDub is sooo underrated. After the past season I think its going to start changing. Though I think a move out of TOR would probably help the most.

This is meant for real life, not fantasy.

Hunter wouldn't make the cut in fantasy anymore (compared to the other 3 at least) but his defense is still good enough to warrant a mention.

Maybe next year on Rocco RUMP.... B-)

Maybe it's just me but Sizemore is clearly the best in the AL in terms of real life. I used to doubt him but he is progressively getting better every year.

I think in terms of leadership and lineup presence its def. Vernon over Grady. In terms of fielding its a toss up, but VDub is overall a better player.

Actually, if anything I think he's overrated. He's only had 2 good offensive seasons out of his 5 (and he gets a lot of credit for being a great hitter at times). Sometimes I think people forget that he hasn't exactly been Mr. Consistency over his time in the bigs. Once he proves that he consistently get an .850 OPS from season to season without regressing back to a .800 or a .780 like he had in '04, then I think he won't be as overrated (both in real-life and fantasy).

As for his D, well it's still great, and among the best of his position, it did take a step back this year.
