Community Projection: Jack Wilson

UPDATE: The Wilson projections are now closed.

We pretty much nailed our Wilson projection last year, and I see no reason we couldn't do it again. For all the apologies about Wilson's hitting throughout his career - he was rushed to the big leagues, he had a bad appendectomy in 2005, and so on - he's been a remarkably consistent player since 2002. 2004 was the only real outlier.

Please guess Wilson's 2007 batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage in the comments.

Here are the results of the projections so far, including Adam LaRoche's projection. Freddy Sanchez is still open.

Ronny Paulino C .271/.334/.414 .272/.327/.378
Adam LaRoche 1B .281/.350/.539 .279/.345/.526

ZiPS and the community are on the same page here. PECOTA is slightly less optimistic than ZiPS is. An irrelevant, but interesting, note about LaRoche: he had 87 strikeouts in 451 at bats in 2005. He had a huge spike in strikeouts in 2006, with 128 in 492 at bats. He also had a huge spike in production.
