Community Projection: Paul Maholm

Now on to the pitchers, the first of whom is the Pirates' nominal ace, Paul Maholm. Predict his 2009 innings pitched, strikeouts, walks and ERA, in that order, in the commentsAs a bonus, you can guess the number of victories Maholm will post (he only had nine in 2009 despite pitching very well most of the year). If you're new to Bucs Dugout, community projections are a quick, easy way to start getting involved.

Here are the results of all the projections so far, including the projection for Nyjer Morgan, which is now closed:

NAME POS. COMMUNITY BONUS ZiPS
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
.267/.317/.358
Andy LaRoche 3B .264/.361/.436 124 starts .232/.325/.363
Brandon Moss OF .260/.333/.460 48 extra-base hits .251/.312/.403
Nate McLouth CF .276/.355/.480 First CS on May 21 .261/.342/.459
Nyjer Morgan OF .274/.318/.348 43 games at leadoff .262/.315/.318

I'd say the community was very kind, actually, and BD readers probably aren't known to be big Nyjer fans. He's totally worthless if he can't beat the BD community's projection by a large margin, and neither ZiPS nor PECOTA think he'll do it. PECOTA, in particular, thinks he's just awful. Whatever. I've said my piece on this topic. I hope he proves me wrong.
