Well, this should certainly be interesting. I look forward to some entertaining projections here.
Next up in our Community Projections is Andy LaRoche. Post your guesses in the comments about his 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 major league games LaRoche will start in 2009.
Here are LaRoche's career numbers. If you've been lurking here at Bucs Dugout, the Community Projections are a great way to get started commenting.
Here are the results of the Community Projections so far, including the Jack Wilson 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
Bucs Dugout readers have few illusions about Wilson, it seems. I hold out some tiny amount of hope for a 2007-like renaissance and I'm surprised that only a couple of people really predicted one, but given Wilson's age and position, that does seem highly unlikely.
