Community Projection: Tony Armas, Jr.

New, 11 comments

EDIT: The Armas projections are now closed.

How will Tony Armas, Jr. fare this year. Will the move away from Washington's pitcher-friendly environs hasten his descent into irrelevance? Or will he reclaim some portion of his former potential? Will he stick in the rotation the entire year?

Let me know in the comments by predicting his 2007 innings pitched, ERA, strikeouts and walks.

The Tom Gorzelanny projections are still open. Paul Maholm is closed. Here are the results:

PITCHER COMMUNITY ZiPS
Zach Duke 3.99 ERA, 209 IP, 126 K, 56 BB 3.92 ERA, 216 IP, 127 K, 59 BB
Ian Snell 4.28 ERA, 193 IP, 172 K, 71 BB 4.53 ERA, 169 IP, 140 K, 62 BB
Paul Maholm 4.48 ERA, 177 IP, 114 K, 72 BB 4.63 ERA, 177 IP, 115 K, 75 BB

Wow, the community and ZiPS agree very closely on that one. As with many of our other players, we're a little more optimistic than ZiPS, but not by much, and the innings, strikeouts and walks are either identical or virtually identical.
