Next up in our community projections series is Opening Day starter Kevin Correia. Let me know how you'll think he'll do by posting your guesses of his 2011 innings pitched, strikeouts, walks and ERA, in that order, and I'll compile the first 20.
The results of the James McDonald projection are in.
|Chris Snyder||.232/.324/.388, 25% caught stealing||.215/.324/.381|
|Ronny Cedeno||.247/.295/.365, 105 starts||.253/.295/.385|
|Pedro Alvarez||.267.352/.507, 33 homers||.262/.337/.479|
|Jose Tabata||.294/.365/.428, 30 stolen bases||.289/.343/.398|
|Andrew McCutchen||.295/.372/.480, -1.7 UZR/150||.288/.365/.453|
|Paul Maholm||171.1 IP, 94K, 54BB, 4.52 ERA||190.1 IP, 117K, 61BB, 4.40 ERA|
|James McDonald||164.1 IP, 140K, 62BB, 4.16 ERA||121.2 IP, 95K, 53BB, 4.14 ERA|
I wouldn't worry too much about McDonald's innings pitched, strikeouts and walks being considerably lower in the ZiPS projection. ZiPS thinks he'll make 15 relief appearances this year, and obviously he won't unless things go very wrong. That's just ZiPS' way of processing the Dodgers' indifference to McDonald when he pitched for them.

By the way, you may notice the advertorial thing beneath this post. That will be there today and one other day next week. Gotta pay the bills.
