And Austin Jackson’s projections are … ?

DD said...

Bumgarner is horrible….he will not come anywhere close to those numbers.

Also, an average Pedro Alvarez season = .270 BA??? Riiight…try .250

Mike Podhorzer said...

Where are these projections from? Are they just your own opinion or some projection system?

Jacob Rothberg said...

Agreed on Stanton. What’s the defence of that?

Chris said...

To defend the Stanton prediction just look at Garrett Jones and his 33.4 HR pace (over 500 AB’s) last season and his 20.3 HR pace this year. Yeah the power should develop more as he gets older, but at the same time he’s never played in AAA and historically speaking, it will limit him. Rays’ predicted pace is also based on a 600 AB season. 600 AB’s isn’t easy to do. Sampling a random group of players (Callaspo, Butler, Choo, Holiday, Pujols, Carlos Pena and Tulo) only one, Butler, reached the 600 AB mark and the average was some where around 560’s, I usually work out my predictions based on 500 AB seasons since it’s conservative and allows for short DL stints.

Also, it’s only a prediction and these seem to be relatively ‘safe’ predictions so no one should be getting too bent out of shape.

Ray said...

..pretty shocked to see Mike Stanton’s numbers at Avg – 29 HR Prime – 35 HR. This year his HR numbers project out to 35 HR if he played in all 162 games, and I doubt anyone’s Age 20 season is their prime year.

What about Domonic Brown?

Desmond Jennings prime and average years look a lot alike.

eric kesselman said...

Actually a few guys prime and avg years look a lot alike. That alone seems fishy.
