Community Projection: Joe Randa

UPDATE: The Randa projections are now closed.

How will new Bucs third baseman Joe Randa perform in 2006? He was respectable in 2005, but he faltered after moving to a pitchers' park in San Diego. He's at the age when players like him tend to decline, but he has been a remarkably consistent player in the last four years.

As always, predict his 2006 batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage in the comments.

The Jack Wilson predictions are still open.

The results so far:

PLAYER POS. COMMUNITY ZiPS
Sean Casey 1B .300/.361/.446 .313/.373/.441
Jose Castillo 2B .275/.322/.441 .277/.325/.394
Jason Bay LF .298/.403/.547 .297/.395/.557
Chris Duffy CF .278/.331/.395 .287/.338/.384
Jeromy Burnitz RF .246/.317/.439 .240/.311/.412

These Castillo projections are very interesting. ZiPS thinks he won't get better; the community agrees with ZiPS on the batting average and on-base percentages, but thinks Castillo will blossom into a plus offensive player.
