Here's the next entry in our Community Projection series. Here's how it works. We all guess how each player will do for the upcoming season, then review our average projections at the end, with recognition for the most accurate guessers for each player.
This thread is for Adam LaRoche. In the comments, post your guesses for LaRoche's 2009 batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, in that order. For bonus points, you can also guess the date of LaRoche's tenth homer, you think he'll hit at least ten. Here are LaRoche's career stats.
If you haven't commented before, the community projections are a great way to introduce yourself and get started, so feel free to jump in.

Here are the results for Ryan Doumit:
|Ryan Doumit||C||.289/.346/.477||115 games played|
That'd be minor step backward from last year, mostly in his batting average, which makes sense. I might be a bit more pessimistic, but this isn't an unreasonable projection.
