Projections

I'm not sure how many of you visit Maddog's site, but you all should.  He has interesting stuff over there, and always very detailed but easy to understand at the same time.

Anyway, I saw he posted 2007 Bill James projections  for Cubs players in addition to players the Cubs have been associated with this offseason.

I thought guys would like to see them.

Here are some 2007 ZiPS Projections that Various Styles posted a while ago, so you can compare.   As Maddog says in his posts on his blog, they are pretty similar.

Nobody's stats really make me excited.  Z has a lot of walks.  But, Rich Hill though has a TON of K's and Soriano has 38 homers.  Other than that I'm not impressed and I probably shouldn't be.  Or I'm just being pessimistic right now.  I don't know.  Ramirez has pretty good stats too.

I would've like to see the Bill James projections of this year posted with the actual results from this past season like Various Styles did with the ZiPS.  I also like to see how wrong or right they are.  Maybe Maddog could post some for me? Please? :)

Projections don't say exactly what a player will do, but they are fun to look at.
