Contract Crowdsourcing 2011-12: Corner Outfield

We continue our contract crowdsourcing today with corner outfielders. Eno Sarris provided a summary of the numerous options available as part of this offseason’s corner-outfield free-agent class. (While Sarris outlines a number of the free agents at the position, we’ll look at only the top five here — to “set the market,” as it were.)

Like last time, I’ve added some alternate questions for each of the players below — inviting speculation, for example, on whether Josh Willingham will post between 2.0 and 3.0 WAR for the seventh consecutive season, or whether Carlos Beltran’s new fanbase will misunderstand him to the same degree that the Met fanbase did.

While we’ll reserve all contract information until the end of the present series (to avoid bias), data from yesterday’s polling suggests that Rafael Furcal’s run with the NL Champion Cardinals will earn him a little over $2 million per annum on his next contract.

Forms after the jump.
