Jinaz: Is the 2009 Reds opening day outfield worse than last year's?

27
For the 2008 opening day squad, I have them as -6.1 runs on offense, -6.9 runs in baserunning, and a mind-blowing -41.8 runs in the field for a total production of 55 runs below average. For the 2009 opening day squad (assuming Dickerson is in LF), I have them as a miserable -33 runs/150g on offense, +8.6 runs/150 g baserunning, and +8 runs per season in the field for a total projected production of 16 runs below average. I think his methods are a little off, but for what he is trying to show, I think his point still stands. When you look at it across all of the variables, the Reds outfield might actually be improved over the 2008 Opening Day outfield.
