After the top 20 outfielders for 2010 fantasy baseball, guess what we have here?  The top 40 outfielders for 2010 fantasy baseball.  That’s right, Wonderful just gave birth to Awesome.  Wanna hear something even awesomier?  I’m going to turn this to 60 then 80.  Hopefully I don’t blow my amp.  The hardest part about writing these 2010 fantasy baseball rankings posts is writing this opening.  Trying to make the clerical stuff sound less clerical, ya know?  Actually, when I point it out, it gets more clerical.  As with other rankings, where I see tiers beginning and ending are mentioned along with my projections.  Anyway, here’s the top 40 outfielders for 2010 fantasy baseball:

20. Shin-Soo Choo – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until Span.  I call this tier, “Speed threats with weak power.”  As mentioned aforely, this entire tier could be above the “Power threats with weak speed” tier that ended the top 20 outfielders post.  Depends on how you’re building a team.  Okay, now on Choo.  I love that when I search a baseball site for Choo I find Choo Freeman listed first.  Choo Freeman’s getting some Jennie-O turkey for that one.  The non-Freeman, Choo had a bit of a ridunkiculous BABIP.  Don’t know what that’s all about.  The fellas over at Fangraphs hinted that Choo’s choo-choosing where the ball is going with telekinesis.  Nice, when they do a Broadway adaptation of Zapped, Choo can play the Baio role.  Assuming Choo keeps placing line drives between fielders with nothing more than a constipated-looking stare, he should maintain his average.  2010 Projections:  90/18/100/.285/20

21. Bobby Abreu – There’s a few guarantees in life, death, taxes and Bobby Abreu hitting 15 homers.  Yet, he’s a tapestry of different numbers as far as how many steals he’s going to get.  If you had a three-sided coin that had the number twenty, twenty-five and thirty each on a different side then flipped it in the air… Well, I don’t know how a three-sided coin would even land so I got lost in my own example.  2010 Projections:  95/15/100/.300/20

22. Shane Victorino – The Crapolanco trade to the Phillies doesn’t help Victorino’s value as far as Runs, but he’s solid in other categories.  Plus, we can always hope for an injury to the usually durable Crapolanco.  2010 Projections:  75/12/85/.290/30

23. Ben Zobrist – Zobrist’s projections are in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2010 fantasy baseball post.

24. Denard Span – His caught stealings last year are a little disconcerting (10 times in 33 attempts), but I think he can potentially sneak in 12 homers.  2010 Projections:  100/10/70/.300/22

25. Alfonso Soriano – This is a new tier.  This is a two person tier.  This doode and Rios.  I call this tier, “Reclamation projects.” Obviously last year Soriano sucked on the suckhole for the better part of the year.  Maybe his Latin 34 is finally catching up to him.  Wouldn’t surprise me to see him nose dive in 2010.  He only hit 13 homers last year against clubs not named the Astros.  His speed is not what it once was.  I don’t think arthroscopic knee surgery’s going to be the answer to that.  Wow, I’m really selling this bounce back, huh?  The reality of The Situation™ is that there’s question marks with all of these guys.  Soriano can still hit 25+ homers and steal 10+ bags.  2010 Projections:  70/25/85/.270/12

26. Alex Rios – Prepare for another lukewarm sales pitch.  Rios’s BABIP last year was almost fifty points off his career average.  So, say he hit .280 last year with the Runs and RBIs that comes with those extra hits.  Now imagine he still hit the 17 homers and stole the 24 bases.  Still  disappointing, but less so.  Almost convincing, huh?  2010 Projections:  85/19/70/.275/22

27. Carlos Lee – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here to McLouth.  I call this tier, “This is your father’s fantasy baseball outfield.”  This tier is compromised of the oldies but goodies or, perhaps more aptly, oldies and were goodies that may or may not be that goodie anymore.  In 2007, Lee hit 32 homers; in 2008, he hit 28, then last year he put up 26 homers.  Um, bad trend.  If he can reverse that, oh goodie!  2010 Projections:  65/27/100/.300/5

28. Manny Ramirez – Outside of an insane 2nd half in 2008, Manny really hasn’t been that good in a while.  Name value is making him seem like more than Cuddyer.  2010 Projections:  85/28/100/.300

29. Torii Hunter – Double I is like an Elizabeth Vargas stalker… Always near 20/20.  Thank you, Jay Leno!  2010 Projections:  75/23/85/.275/17

30. Carlos Beltran – Was a real battle trying to rank Beltran.  I really need to hear more news on his knee and see how he’s progressing.  This is tentatively where I’d start to look at him.  2010 Projections:  70/20/80/.280/12

31. Raul Ibanez – If it wasn’t for his home park playing like a wiffle ball stadium, I would’ve dropped him further because of his 2nd half.  Since I think my buck-fifty frame could hit 25 homers in Citizen’s Bank, I’m willing to give Ibanez the benefit of the doubt.  2010 Projections:  85/27/100/.270/3

32. Johnny Damon – He’s like the Brian Roberts of the outfield.  Homers go up, steals go down.  Steals go up, homers go down.  Put it together, Damon, your time is running out.  2010 Projections:  100/20/75/.290/15

33. Nate McLouth – Torii minus fifteen points on average or CarGo with no upside.  It’s okay, but if you have an erection for longer than ten minutes after drafting McLouth, you should seek immediate medical attention.  2010 Projections:  95/20/75/.260/20

34. Hunter Pence -This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here to Reimold.  I call this tier, “I wanted to rank all of these guys higher.”  I.e., I like the guys in this tier.  They’re not slam dunks, but to varying degrees I’m very excited about them.  Do I want an outfield of, say, Pence, Bruce and Reimold?  No, not at all.  That’s too much of a good thing.  That good thing being upside. re: Pence; he’s going to be the magical 27 years old in 2010 when baseball players don a green hat similar to one seen in Leprechaun: In The Hood and their power reaches its peak.  A big season is in store.  2010 Projections:  85/30/100/.295/15

35. Andrew McCutchen – Yes, in the tier of guys I’m gunning for is an Astro, a Pirate, a Red and an Oriole.  Ugh, this means I’m gonna have to watch these teams during the season.  Alas, we’ll save that setback for the season.  Check it, some of the things you just can’t figure.  Why is Victorino ranked above The Dread Pirate when their projections are near-identical?  Because, for three years in a row, Victorino has already done what The Dread Pirate could do.  McCutchen is the brand new model, the 2010 Victorino.  2010 Projections:  90/15/60/.280/30

36. Jay Bruce –  As Master Gee would say, “Well, it’s on on on on on on on on.”   Went over my Jay Bruce fantasy already.  I like, friend.  I’m practically daffy for him.  Do I like him as much as Bill James who projected him for 38 homers and 10 steals?  Only Bruce’s Mom loves him that much.  2010 Projections:  80/30/95/.270/7

37. Carlos Gonzalez – He’ll probably only give you McLouth numbers, so please keep expectations in check.  Okay, enough of that.  He’s going to be awesome!!!!! (Extra exclamation marks were texted in by my twelve year old niece.)  2010 Projections:  85/18/70/.275/20

38. Nolan Reimold – Has 10 steal speed, 25 homer power, should hit around .290… Holy crap, Markakis is a Russian nesting doll and inside him is Reimold!  (For further reading on my Reimold fantasy.)  2010 Projections:  85/25/95/.290/10

39. Garrett Jones –  Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2010 fantasy baseball post.  2010 Projections:  65/25/80/.255/12

40. Michael Bourn – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until Pierre.  I call this tier, “SAGNOF!”  As for Bourn, see tier name.  2010 Projections:  100/4/40/.270/55

There will be a top 60 outfielder post, but here’s four names on the top 40 outfielders for 2010 fantasy baseball that I need to point out because you can’t just end a SAGNOF tier without these guys:

40 1/5. Nyjer Morgan – See Bourn, Michael or 1/3 of an inch above.  2010 Projections:  105/4/45/.300/45

40 2/5. Rajai Davis – Too many speed schmohawks and not enough space.  2010 Projections:  80/4/40/.290/50

40 3/5. Julio Borbon – Portmanteau’ing Bourn, Morgan, Rajai, Borbon and Pierre and you get Mijerio Pierogies.  The one Hispanic man in all of Poland.  (Further reading on the Borbon fantasy.)  2010 Projections:  90/8/40/.300/40

40 4/5. Juan Pierre – He’s not French, but he can make love to your face with his steals.  2010 Projections:  95/1/40/.300/45

    you project manny to steal 3 tenths of a base ?
    i’m not sure how you arrived at that figure ,
    unless you used this mathematical equation ==>
    speed minus desire .

    i can however almost visual the play , in my mind :
    manny’s on 1st .
    wasps are buzzing about his dreds .
    manny takes 4 steps and pirouettes ,
    while swatting at them with his batting helmet .
    the 2nd baseman walks over and applies the tag .
    manny flips his batting helmet towards the dugout
    and waits for someone to bring him his glove .

    manny being manny .

    In my Year 3 Dynasty Team, I’ve got:

    LF: N. Morgan, Julio Borbon
    CF: CarGonzales, Adam Jones
    RF: Werth, Pence

    At first I was thinking I better get some POP or some old-man power in my OF, but after reading this, I may say screw it and rock-n-roll! Is this a case of the blind leading the blind, or can I really feel good about myself?

    Keep up the great work here! Love reading yer stuff.

  10. Ian says:

    Great stuff

    Somehow I completely missed the season that Denard Span had last year. I was really excited for The Dread Pirate this year, but Span might be a nice alternative (though fewer steals probably).

    Have to keep 6…

    As of now I’m rolling with…

    Miguel Cabrera RD 1 (Have to let go back 2011)

    Dan Haren RD 9 (Have to let go back 2011)

    Pablo Sandoval RD 13 (Have to let go back 2013)

    Kevin Youkilis RD 18 (Have to let go back 2012)

    Evan Longoria RD 21 (Have to let go back 2012)

    Tommy Hanson RD 22 (Have to let go back 2013)

    I was just offered a RD 24 Gordan Beckham for my Youkilis, Beckham can be kept one more year than Youk can…

    I should mention that we start 2 UTL slots, so basically I can play Miggy, Longoria, Sandoval, and Youk all in the same lineup. One at 1B, one at 3B, the other two at the UTL slots.

    Our offensive categories are..

    AVG
    Runs
    HR
    RBI
    Hits
    Walks
    OPS
    SB’s

    What do you do?

  13. 101 M.P.H. says:

    Help! I’m under a deadline for a trade (looking to add speed and average), and I have to make a choice between the following two options:

    (Mixed league, $260 pay-roll)

    1) trade Jason Kubel ($10) for Ichiro ($24); or
    2) not trade, and keep Juan Pierre for $10

    I’m keeping Nelson Cruz for $13, and Ichiro seems like a good complement to his mediocre batting average and runs, but is Ichiro at $24 a big enough upgrade over Pierre to rationalize the deal?

    What to do???

  14. Eddy says:
    (link)

    @101 M.P.H.:
    Pierre is going to get substantially more steals than Ichiro. And don’t forget that it’s not like Pierre is a .275 hitter. He’ll reach .300 for you. I’d take the .300/45 over the .330/30 because you can get the former extremely cheap

    @Get Figgy With It: Awesome… Yeah, definitely pass them on when you have them.

    @big o: Hehe

    @Steve: Borbon — If you’re going SAGNOF, why not go for some upside?

    @Schlitzy: Glad you’re enjoying.

    @Fman99: Thanks!

    @Antrim Warriors: Gotta happen some year, why not this one.

    @Mikey boy324: Bruce

    @Uncle Cos: If that outfield pans out, you’ll be set, but there is something to not wanting to try for too much upside. It’s a lot of risk.

    @Ian: Yup

    @Tom: Is this Stephen Drew disguising himself?

    @Tony B.: Sounds like you’re getting greedy.

    @101 M.P.H.: Pierre for $10 isn’t exactly a bargain, but I’d hold tight.

    I am the Tom that has commented regularly on this site for the last year, and I would like everyone to know that I did NOT advocate for JD Drew. That was fake Tom. Or Stephen Drew.

    Either way, it looks like I might have to go by Thomas on this thing. Eff my parents for their lack of originality.

    Fake Tom, I’ve got nothing but love for you. But JD Drew is as valuable to a Fantasy Team as I was to my little league team. My greatest contribution to my team was swinging at a pitch that eventually hit me in the ribs. Luckily, my dad was the coach and I still got to start (call me Chris Duncan!)

    I digress. JD’s a valuable ballplayer, but in Fantasy, he’s dead to me.

    You are right on about speed/power shift. I have played fantasy baseball since before there was computers and last fifteen yrs in of specific league. Used to be real issue to find acceptable CFs –now there dime a dozen and RF sucks.
    Grey whats your opinion on why most people dont play OF pos specific leagues? It makes it much more challenging –especially during season. Did I answer my own querstion?

  26. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Pochucker: Yeah, I hear you on hearing me about the power/speed shift. Not too long ago I would draft Sammy Sosa hoping for some steals. I think 5 outfielders is difficult enough without having to do position specific leagues.

  27. Jo says:
    (link)

    @grey: would you condone an outfield of someone like Grandy as the #1 then 2 of the riemold/mccutchen/borbon type? I’m doing a slow mock and considerign that strat right now

    I know the Drrread Pirate’s sample size is small, but the dude is Victorino with upside. ‘Member when we were taking Victorino in the 50s last year? With Crapolanco at the Bank, I think I’d rather have McCutchen…

    CBS lists Bourn worth $7 in a 5×5 auction league and Reimold as $1. I hope my league mates are using these rankings. I would love to grab Reimold for $1!

    By virtue of his 23 GP at DH last year, Julio Borbon qualifies at 1B for 2010 with ESPN (validated by ESPN).

  32. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Simply Fred: You lost me there. Because he played at DH, he’s a 1B?

  33. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: In ESPN standard leagues (and RCL), they don’t use a DH. So, DH are eligible at 1B (and CI).

  34. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: He will be listed as an OF for first eligibility, but qualifies as 1B also.

  35. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Ups his value a tick!?

  36. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Simply Fred: If a guy is listed at DH, then they only qualify for Utility, not 1st. Yahoo will have Borbon in the outfield and it looks like he played 20 games in the outfield too so I think he’ll get ESPN’s eligibility. Though they might use games started, then he’ll have to wait until the 2nd week of the season for the OF eligibility when he gets to 10 games started in-season.

  37. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: “Derrick” from Customer Care at ESPN validated that Borbon has eligibility at 1B. He said that Borbon is listed as an OF and when Fantasy is opened up in Feb., if ESPN doesn’t show his eligibility, to call them. They will make sure that he is listed with 1B eligibility (which he qualifies for based on 23 DH GP). I believe that CI can be filled by any player having 1B or 3B eligibility. Yes?

  38. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Derrick had checked with his boss for validation.

  39. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Simply Fred: I don’t doubt Derrick said that but unless they changed from last year, a DH does not get 1B eligibility. It’s what makes Vlad, Matsui and Ortiz such tough sells. If Derrick’s right, he would be a CI too then.

  40. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Well, he and his boss both work for ESPN. You got somebody higher up to check with?

  41. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: The key may be that Borb on is not listed primarily as a DH. He is listed as an OF with secondary eligibility at 1B. ??

  42. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Simply Fred: For ESPN, every other year it’s been 20 games the previous year and they get that position. For him to get 1st base, he would have to start at 1st base. DH makes him only Utility eligible. This is how it’s been done in the past at least.

    Here’s a post about it from ESPN:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/fantasy/baseball/flb/story?page=hp090917

    (That post was done prior to him getting a few more games at outfield.)

  43. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Sorry, please quote specific passage that applies. I don’t see anything that goes against what Derrick said. Borbon will be listed primarily at OF presumably because he had 20 GP at OF. He has secondary eligibility as a 1B because of 23 GP at DH.

    I think it is good that we pursue this until all are on the same page; it seems pretty significant to me.

    Really, if you know somebody at ESPN that can confirm/deny that would be great.

    If nothing else is done, come February I will check his eligibility at 1B and if not there will contact them to see if they add it (as Derrick and his boss said they would).

  44. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: You have listed several players that have 2 position eligibility. Not understanding why you think Borbon shouldn’t.

  45. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Simply Fred: There’s a bunch of passages there regarding Matsui and Vlad and how they’ll only be DHs, nothing about 1st base. Email Derrick and tell him to think about it, why would someone who never played a game at 1st have 1st base eligibility. If he says, that’s how we’re doing it this year then maybe he’s right, though I have my doubts.

  46. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Matsui and Vlad were DHs, with only DH eligibility because they didn’t qualify first at some other position. When Stewart qualifies first at 3B, but also gets 20 GP at 2B, he qualifies there too. Apparently, since Borbon is an OF first, his secondary games at DH qualify him at 1B.

    Maybe they don’t know what they are talking about and just have poor Customer Care services.

    I will wait until February and follow through on their recommendation.

    Still plenty of time to adjust lineups based on the outcome.

  47. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:
    (link)

    @Grey: I spent quite some time on the phone with him. Wanted to make sure it was correct. He was away 5 minutes validating with his boss. They assured it would only take a call and they would process the paperwork. So, i really don’t want to trouble them again right after they said what they did.

  48. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Simply Fred: Talked to Rudy over IM and he reminded me that they used to do it like that about ten years ago. So maybe Derrick and his boss are time travelers or they’ve just been calling in too many sick days recently. Not sure, but that would change things dramatically if they were right. But like I’ve said I really doubt it.

  49. Simply Fred

    Simply Fred says:

    @Grey: No harm, no foul at this point. I will lay low and check it out in February. If it pans out like they told me, I will post the “news.” Otherwise, all quiet on the western front.

    Gray…One guy comes to mind as a bounceback candidate Corey Hart who I think belongs in the top 40 look for a line 80/23/75/.280/23 although not overwhelming i think it puts him ahead of Rios

  51. Clodbuster says:
    (link)

    Boy, I sure hope there’s a continuation of this drama in the Sanchez comments!

    Will Borbon gain 1B eligibility?

    Will Grey’s hair survive another back and forth?

    What did “Derek” really do during those
    five minutes he
    supposedly spent with his “boss”?

  52. Winson says:

    I’m somewhat confused on how you make your rankings. You project Jay Bruce at 80/30/95/.270/7 at #36, while you project Andre Ethier at #15 with 80/24/95/.285/7 and Carlos Quentin at #16 with 80/28/95/.275/5.

    If you ask me, those are all pretty similar lines. I don’t see how Bruce could be 20 spots below those 2 with that kind of potential/projection. Plus, Markakis with a projection of 100/24/100/.300/7 at #20. That line is better than all of them, so I don’t understand why he’s not the highest ranked of the 4 players. Even though he’s not a “sexy” pick, he offers reliability with no weak spots. Each of the other 3 players at least hurts with fewer runs and/or low avg.

    I guess my question is are you ranking these players based on the order they should be drafted? or where they finish at the end of the season? doesn’t seem different, but it is definitely different.

  53. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Jcom: Hart’s been bad for a year and a half. He’s coming shortly in the rankings, but he was much worse than Rios for the last year and a half.

    @Clodbuster: Ha!

    @Winson: Rankings are the order I would draft them. Bruce has nice projections, but he also has more risk than Ethier and some more risk than Quentin. Risk pushes him down the rankings.

  54. Keith says:

    What do you think about Kyle Blanks? This kid has huge power potential despite playing in Petco. I heard he’s going to hit 5th or 6th so he should get a decent opportunity to knock in Gonzalez. I know he’s young and unproven but his upside has to rank him top 60 OF. He could knock in 30 HR this year given a full season of AB. I have no idea what his BA would be or how he can be 6’6 and playing in the OF but it seems SD is determined to get him out there.

    How awful must it be to be SD and have only 2 good players on your team and both play 1st in the NL! I really think Adrian is going to get moved for a boatload of prospects.

    @Keith: I like Blanks for cheap power. I agree that he could hit 30 homers. Also agree that A-Gon will probably get moved at some point.

    I just want to compliment myself. In a 8 team keeper league I just traded Bourn (SAGNOF!), Juan Pierre (SAGNOF!) and Marlon Byrd (who was a FA for the least 3 weeks until I picked him up just to move him) for Denard Span and Dunn.

    On a team with Fielder, Utley, Reynolds, Victorino, Blanks, and Bartlett should I try and add more speed, power, or BA? Of those players who right now is the ideal guy to move because they are overrated?

    @Keith: Nice trade! Bartlett and Reynolds are overrated, in that order I’d try and move them.

    I have been a huge Bobby Abreu fan over the years…but, this is the year that Bobby’s body begins to break…I expect him to miss major time this year and so I have cut bait and and keeping CarGo in his stead…is this crazy?

    @MrPittsSox: He’s going on about 11 years of 150+ games. So until Abreu actually breaks down, I’m not going to predict it.

    @Grey: You’re right he’s been one of the most dependable/predictable OF’s in the game. But those 11 straight years are exactly what I’m talking about, that’s gotta catch up with him sometime and he’s going to be 36 (which is like 41 in latin years) that plus the Miami firesale they’re having in Anaheim is why I’m leaning towards CarGo in a keeper league…trying to stay ahead of the curve…thanks for the great site

    Why is Carlos Lee so far down the list? I feel like I’m at an automobile dealership..uggghhh, this car is too old, we better check the blue book value on this one. My father’s outfield…lol You put that injury prone fraud Josh Hamilton (do I need a membership for AA??), Ethier (with his big ole Manny crutch), and Foot Fungus Boy Carlos Quentin above him? Hilarious. Adam Jones? Any of these players I just mentioned don’t have the average, homers, or stamina of El Caballo. And don’t try and pass it off like he wont score enough runs…that’s an Astro problem. What’s up mang? The ratings this year do not promote reliability or consistency, stick with the numbers…and I don’t mean superficial age bias! Where’s the three year average rankings??? I know that everyone LOVES their future studs and sleeper cars, but I want a track record!

    denard span ranked above everyone until before Reimhold, and even above Borbon is a disgrace. Why are you in love with him? barely 10 jacks, not 40, not even 30 SBs… no thanks.
