Next up in our community projection series is James McDonald. In the comments, let me know what you think McDonald's 2011 innings pitched, strikeouts, walks and ERA will be, in that order, and I'll compile the first 20 into a projection.

The Paul Maholm projection is done. Here are the results so far.

We are nothing if not realists. That's about the most sober-looking projection by a group of fans that I've ever seen. The memory of Maholm's 5.10 ERA lingers for lots of us, I'm sure.
