Who will be the top 3 outfielders next year in DD?

Judge might be a gold. He was already barely a diamond this year as it was

Better at bad defense, not getting on base, and not hitting for power?

Yes.

I reckon Juan Soto will have a higher ranked card than Judge before the year is out.

Sotot has very poor fielding and you can’t compare a RF to LF, defense isn’t graded as hard on a LF card compared to a RF card.

People are slandering Judge like he's not a top 8 player in baseball when healthy

He’s not though. Trout, Yelich, Betts, Arenado, are all clearly better. Bellinger has had 2 out of 3 good years and he’s a slightly better defender. Acuna and Judge are close but Judge is 6 years older than Acuna so I’ll take him. We will see this year if Bregman is actually good without cheating. Soto is a better overall hitter but the poor defense on Soto gives Judge the edge. Rendon is better. I’ll give you top 15 but we have really only seen 1 year of what Judge can do. He hasn’t been healthy enough to crack the top 10 players in baseball IMO

Excuse me my good sir, you’re forgetting the best third baseman in MLB since his rookie year in 2015, Kris Bryant.

Except, since his debut, he's still 6th in overall fWAR, having played fewer games than 1-5.

For reference, Bregman is 5th, and he's played 100 MORE games than Judge, and Judge has a higher defensive rating than 3 of those 5 players.

Not putting Judge in the top 5 is an egregious error.

His defensive value is higher, but CF is much bigger territory.

With a robe zone, his K rate should tank and BB rate should jump: low balls are called strikes on Judge, 100% more often than the league average.

Yeah. But Trout's best season is 10.5 WAR. Judge had 8.1 WAR his rookie year while slumping due to a shoulder injury. Without that, his WAR is closer to 11-12.

He has to stay healthy and get a fair zone: the latter is killing his OBP, yet his OBP is always near the league lead.

Again, they call low strikes on him 100% more often than the league average: that's an insane gap.
