Default Zoom Lenses

Help me oh wise photography people, please, help.

I'd like to have a new lens for shooting agility/dogs in action shots, and I went ahead and in a spur of the moment bought a 75-300mm lens that mom bought me and as much as I appreciate the lens, it's not exactly the quality I want. She paid $130 for it brand new, I believe. Anywho, I'm kind of looking at selling that one and getting a different one, and I'd like to not have to pay as much as my car for it, so I've been scoping out some "cheaper" lenses that still, to me, look like they might be decent.

So far I've found these ones:

Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM Telephoto Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras - $300
http://www.amazon.com/Canon-55-200mm.../dp/B0000CCW64

Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM Standard Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras - $270
http://www.amazon.com/Canon-28-105mm.../dp/B00004YZQ8

Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Standard Zoom Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras - $550
http://www.amazon.com/Canon-18-200mm.../dp/B001ET6QFY

Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras - $160
http://www.amazon.com/Tamron-70-300m.../dp/B000EXOXVA
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Tamron-70-300...item20c0d6eaca - $220 package

Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD for Canon Digital SLR Cameras - $400
http://www.amazon.com/Tamron-70-300m.../dp/B003YH9DZ4


And of course, some of them are a bit higher than I'd like to pay, but I was just wondering if anyone could give some input on all, or any, of these lenses.

I'm shooting with a Canon Rebel xSi right now, and that's not likely to change for a year or two, so... thoughts, opinions, ideas? Thanks!
