BCB 2010 Community Projections: Starting Position Players

Thanks to everyone who submitted projections in the community projection series. For the starting eight position players, we had anywhere from 52 projections (Marlon Byrd) to 98 (Derrek Lee). There were enough to make the overall projections legitimate ones, and I don't think you'll find any of them way out of line.

The numbers you'll see after the jump were rounded up or down from what appeared the spreadsheet. In certain cases this might mean that some averaging numbers might be off by small amounts.

Geovany Soto: .289/.365/.483 (.849 OPS) 464 AB, 64 runs, 132 hits, 26 doubles, 1 triple, 20 HR, 77 RBI, 56 BB, 96 K

Derrek Lee: .304/.384/.539 (.924 OPS) 549 AB, 92 runs, 166 hits, 35 doubles, 2 triples, 30 HR, 112 RBI, 72 BB, 111 K

Jeff Baker: .282/.345/.434 (.779 OPS) 381 AB, 57 runs, 108 hits, 21 doubles, 2 triples, 11 HR, 53 RBI, 38 BB, 73 K

Aramis Ramirez: .312/.386/.568 (.954 OPS) 540 AB, 92 runs, 167 hits, 35 doubles, 2 triples, 33 HR, 113 RBI, 66 BB, 83 K

Ryan Theriot: .291/.356/.378 (.735 OPS) 556 AB, 83 runs, 162 hits, 24 doubles, 5 triples, 5 HR, 48 RBI, 58 BB, 75 K. For double clutches, entries ranged from "3" to "infinity" to "every time" to "too many" to "4342455454155443554".

Alfonso Soriano: .282/.333/.517 (.851 OPS) 521 AB, 82 runs, 147 hits, 30 doubles, 3 triples, 29 HR, 90 RBI, 41 BB, 118 K. For outfield hops, entries ranged from "0" to "entirely too many" to "unknowable" to "54333123242321341".

Marlon Byrd: .286/.346/.461 (.807 OPS) 523 AB, 76 runs, 150 hits, 33 doubles, 3 triples, 18 HR, 79 RBI, 48 BB, 92 K

Kosuke Fukudome: .292/.395/.554 (.950 OPS) 430 AB, 71 runs, 120 hits, 27 doubles, 4 triples, 11 HR, 55 RBI, 74 BB, 78 K. For revolutions in batter's box (otherwise known as "helicopter swings"), entries ranged from "-13" to "0.75" to "10000000".

Other than Fukudome's SLG -- which I think is too high -- these averaged-out projections seem pretty realistic. If Soto, Ramirez and Soriano can meet them -- they're all coming off subpar years for various reasons -- and the rest can perform up to what are close to career averages, the Cubs will have a very good offense.
