Community Projection: Andrew McCutchen

It was johnnycuff's idea to do a McCutchen projection, which I think should be interesting while we wait for the rotation to sort itself out a bit. In the comments, predict McCutchen's 2009 batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage, in that order. As a bonus, guess the number of at bats (not plate appearances, at bats) McCutchen will have this year. If you've been lurking, community projections are an easy way to start getting involved.

Here are the results of the projections so far, including the one for Matt Capps, which is now closed:

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
Andy LaRoche 3B .264/.361/.436 124 starts .232/.325/.363
Brandon Moss OF .260/.333/.460 48 extra-base hits .251/.312/.403
Nate McLouth CF .276/.355/.480 First CS on May 21 .261/.342/.459
Nyjer Morgan OF .274/.318/.348 43 games at leadoff .262/.315/.318


Paul Maholm SP 184.3 IP, 132K, 58BB, 4.00 ERA 12 wins 180.7 IP, 120K, 60BB, 4.53 ERA
Matt Capps RP 64.3 IP, 55K, 13BB, 3.13 ERA 26 saves 71.7 IP, 55K, 13BB, 3.25 ERA

It doesn't look like the community and ZiPS have much to disagree about here. Capps has become one of the Pirates' more dependable players, which is funny given that he's a reliever who isn't in the best shape.
