Who is the greatest outfielder in Orioles history?

Ok, this question is a bit misleading. I am working on compiling the best 25 man roster for each team without repeating players. To me, Frank Robinson is the greatest outfielder to wear an Oriole uniform but sadly he played with the Reds longer (10 seasons vs 6) and he accumulated more WAR in Cincinnati (though his WAR/yr was slightly higher in Baltimore) making him a Red in my version. So, who's next?

There's Baby Doll Jacoboson who was a very good outfielder when the franchise was in St. Louis. Same thing for Ken Williams (not the same guy who's the president of the White Sox). Other choices include Ken Singleton, Don Buford, Brady Anderson, and Paul Blair. I'm really stumped on this one so please help me out!

  • Brady Anderson 1988-2002: .256/.362/.425 109 OPS+, 34.8 career WAR, 6.9 in best season
  • Paul Blair 1964-1980: .250/.302/.382 96 OPS+, 37.9 career WAR, 7.1 in best season - 8 Gold Gloves
  • Don Buford 1963-1972: .264/.362/.379 115 OPS+, 36.3 career WAR, 7.0 in best season
  • Baby Doll Jacobson 1915-1927: .311/.357/.450 112 OPS+, 28.2 career WAR, 5.1 WAR in best season
  • Ken Singleton 1970-1984: .282/.388/.436 132 OPS+, 41.8 career WAR, 5.7 (twice) in best season
  • Ken Williams 1915-1929: .319/.393/.530 138 OPS+, 42.4 career WAR, 7.9 in best season
