Looking Ahead to 2012 Outfield Spot


     Much has been debated about Chipper's future with the Braves.  In this Fan Post, I was hoping to take a look ahead to next year's outfield free agent class in order to speculate on possible additions in case Chipper does indeed retire.  As it has been stated, we are clearing a decent chuck of salary next year and hopefully we are able to get rid of Lowe.  One aspect I won't cover is a possible trade for an outfielder that includes Lowe or anyone else.  So without further ado.....your free agent class of 2012.

Stars indicate a 2012 option for the players.  I will also post current 2011 BA, OBP, SLG, and OPS and whether they hit right handed or left.
