Ranking NL East Left Fielders

And from outta left field comes the ranking of the NL East LF's.

1. Atlanta Braves
Martin Prado
.307/.809, 100 R, 40 2B, 15 HR, 66 RBI, 2.7 WAR. Plays multiple positions and can flat-out hit. One of the most underrated players in the game.

2. New York Mets
Jason Bay
.259/.749, 48 R, 20 2B, 6 3B, 47 RBI, 10 SB, 1.1 WAR. Something went terribly wrong for Bay in 2010, but he's a better player than that stat line. Expect a bounce back year from this Canadian born former Pirate and Rookie of the Year.

3. Philadelphia Phillies/Raul Ibanez (38)
.275/.793, 75 R, 37 2B, 5 3B, 16 HR, 83 RBI, 1 WAR. Dude is getting up their in age, but after strong resurgence in the 2nd half of last season he's still worth regular playing time.

4. Florida Marlins/Logan Morrison (23)
.283/.837, 43 R, 20 2B, 7 3B, 18 RBI, .8 WAR. Gets mad props for the Sharktits t-shirt post on Twitter. He'll hit for average and get on base at a high rate, but has average speed and only gap power.

5. Washington Nationals/Roger Bernadina (26)
.246/.691, 52 R, 18 2B, 11 HR, 47 RBI, 16 SB, -.2 WAR. Needs to get on base more via hit and/or walk, or Rick Ankiel will be stealing at bats away from him.

Think you're selling Logan short.

He's good, but how good...eh, don't know.
