Between Drew Stubbs, Nyjer Morgan, Jon Jay and Andrew McCutchen, center fielders in the NL Central are incredibly talented.
Stubbs hits decently, flashes some power and fields his position. But he doesn't hit for average or produce runs and move people over well enough.
Morgan raked last season, but the jury is still out whether he'll be consistent in Milwaukee or if his first year was a flash in the pan. In addition to questions of consistency, Morgan has no power at all.
Jon Jay should only continue to get better, but he's not the best of the best yet.
Andrew McCutchen, on the other hand, consistently gets more than 120 hits a season. Likewise, he's a lock for at least 20 stolen bases or more every year.
The 5'10'', 190-pound outfielder produces tons of power for his size. In 2011, he hit 23 home runs.
Though his batting average dipped to .259, his on base percentage remained at a respectable .365.
The combination of hitting, speed and defense nails down the top spot for McCutchen.
