Another interesting one. Post your guesses in the comments about Brandon Moss' 2009 performance by predicting his 2009 batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, in that order. As a bonus, you can guess the number of extra-base hits Moss will have in 2009.
Here are Moss' career numbers. If you've been lurking, the Community Projections are a great way to get involved at Bucs Dugout, so dive in.
Here are the results of the Community Projections so far, including the Andy LaRoche projection, which is now closed:
|Ryan Doumit||C||.289/.346/.477||115 games played||.287/.343/.463|
|Adam LaRoche||1B||.279/.350/.508||10th HR on June 11||.268/.343/.485|
|Freddy Sanchez||2B||.300/.332/.419||548 PAs||.285/.324/.398|
|Jack Wilson||SS||.271/.313/.360||Last 2009 game w/Bucs: August 13
|Andy LaRoche||3B||.264/.361/.436||124 starts||.232/.325/.363|
We're believers, it seems--the BD is much more optimistic than ZiPS about LaRoche. ZiPS doesn't "know" about LaRoche's injury troubles last year, though, and the BD community projection is only a hint more optimistic than Baseball Prospectus' projection (for subscribers only, unfortunately). I'll be reasonably happy if LaRoche hits as we think he will while providing solid defense.
