Use this thread to predict Lyle Overbay's stat line for the 2011 season. Here are Overbay's career stats. Again, I'd encourage you not to look at any projection systems before you guess. In the comments, pick Overbay's 2011 batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage, and I'll compile the first 20 into a community projection.

Speaking of which, here are the results of the Chris Snyder projection:

Player Community ZiPS
Chris Snyder .232/.324/.388, 25% caught stealing .215/.324/.381

It's interesting that the community and ZiPS disagree on the batting average, but are very much in sync elsewhere. It's probably too much to ask, but if Snyder somehow puts up even a .250 batting average, he could be very valuable. Unfortunately, he hit .207 in 2010 and .200 in 2009, and he'll be 30 this year. He should draw walks and hit homers either way, so the wide gap between his batting average, which is awful, and his OBP and SLG numbers, which are reasonable, makes sense.
