Community Projection: Andy LaRoche

New, 43 comments

Well, this should certainly be interesting. I look forward to some entertaining projections here.

Next up in our Community Projections is Andy LaRoche. Post your guesses in the comments about his 2009 performance by predicting his 2009 batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, in that order. As a bonus, you can guess the number of major league games LaRoche will start in 2009.

Here are LaRoche's career numbers. If you've been lurking here at Bucs Dugout, the Community Projections are a great way to get started commenting.

Here are the results of the Community Projections so far, including the Jack Wilson projection, which is now closed:

NAME POS. COMMUNITY BONUS ZiPS
Ryan Doumit C .289/.346/.477 115 games played .287/.343/.463
Adam LaRoche 1B .279/.350/.508 10th HR on June 11 .268/.343/.485
Freddy Sanchez 2B .300/.332/.419 548 PAs .285/.324/.398
Jack Wilson SS .271/.313/.360 Last 2009 game w/Bucs: August 13
.267/.317/.358

Bucs Dugout readers have few illusions about Wilson, it seems. I hold out some tiny amount of hope for a 2007-like renaissance and I'm surprised that only a couple of people really predicted one, but given Wilson's age and position, that does seem highly unlikely.
