2008 Community Projections: Carlos Zambrano

New, 31 comments

Now that the dust has settled from yesterday's ticket sale, let's go back to our projections. All eight of the likely position player starters are now posted -- and I will leave the Kosuke Fukudome and Felix Pie threads open till Monday morning in case you want to add your projection for them -- so let's move on to pitchers.

For starting pitchers, let's use the following categories:

G, GS, IP, H, ER, BB, SO, W, L, ERA, WHIP

Please calculate your ERA and WHIP using the other numbers you post.

So, what say you for Z this year? Is this the year, at age 27 (in June) where he finally has that Cy Young year we all feel he has in him? Or has he established a new level of performance, too many walks, too many pitches, and will just be good, not great?

I'll start -- somewhere in between is where I see him.

G 34
GS 34
IP 220
H 190
ER 86
BB 87
SO 192
W 17
L 10
ERA 3.51
WHIP 1.259
