The Best Center Fielders of the Past 5 Years

This post refers to beyondtheboxscore.com

Beyond the Boxscore continues their series of the best centerfielders of the last five years. Ichiro was #1, despite the fact that he has spent a lot of time in RF the last few years. I didn’t double check the math1 to find out whether the this total included Ichiro’s time in RF.

The real reason I posted this was that Chicago White Sox CF Alex Rios was 5th. Rios was quietly the 5th best AL CF last season according to fWAR. If you subtract Rios’ shaky 20092 he has been very good the last few years.

  1. And it doesn’t say anywhere []
  2. When perhaps you can say the transition to the White Sox hurt his 2nd half []
