I'll keep this short and sweet. I have no respect for your feelings, so when you see Mike Trout is not my No. 1 Outfielder (oh my god!), go ahead and talk trash; see if I care. It's like the time I became the Internet's Most Hated Man when I said Eric Hosmer is a pussy. The truth can crush a heart. And I'm no player, but I crush a lot. Make the jump and see Mike Trout get Big Pun'd:

 

The rankings are grouped into chunks of fifteen. I did not include any prospects; just starting OF listed at MLBDepthCharts.com.

There are players with OF eligibility who were not included. If you're playing Ben Zobrist at OF, rather than SS, you are stupid and I don't want you visiting Sons of Roto anymore. Get out of here! There are also a group of 1B that could have been included, but I don't rank players at multiple positions. It's easier on the eyes when drafting (plus I get to include more players here).

You can downgrade Darin Mastroianni if you wish. There is a chance he could lose his job to Aaron Hicks.
