Best Center Fielder in Diamondbacks History

By Scott Allen

Pitchers and catchers report in a couple of weeks in Scottsdale.  As we all wait for that to happen, I thought it would be interesting to think about who you thought was the best second baseman in Arizona Diamondbacks history?  John Gambadoro and Dave Burns from Sports 620 KTAR put up their own fantasy rosters on Thursday, but I want to throw it out to you to decide position by position.  I will take the outfield position by position. Right field has been posted. Center field is up next.

Obviously Chris Young is the current guy.  He has been up and down.  Started out hot in 2007, along with many other young Dbacks, however in 2009 he found himself back in the minors to work on his game.  He came back and performed very well in 2010.  His outfield skills are second to none and have never been questioned.  Steve Finley was also a fan favorite.  He could run them down with the best.  Of course it all started with Devon White, who was quite the speedster himself.  It's a tough call.  I think I will go with Finley for now but over time I still believe Young will be the better. Your turn to decide.
