They would compete for worst outfield in the league with that lineup. JMJ is not an everyday centerfielder and Schierholtz has played a grand total of 36 professional innings in centerfield (all this year). If they go with Ruf as a full time outfielder, they have to get a CF that can absolutely go and get it (Upton). If you are building a team around the pitching staff, you can't have an OF of Ruf, JMJ, and Brown. That's a recipe for disaster. JMJ was only the everyday CF after Vic got traded because one, they had no one else, and two, they wanted to see if he could be an everyday hitter at this level.
