This one should be fun. Predict Pedro's 2011 batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage in the comments, and I'll compile the first 20 into a community projection. As a bonus, you can predict Alvarez's 2011 home run total.

The Ronny Cedeno projections are now done, so let's take a look.

Player Community ZiPS
Chris Snyder .232/.324/.388, 25% caught stealing .215/.324/.381
Lyle Overbay .261/.346/.432 .244/.336/.423
Neil Walker .278/.337/.444 .271/.321/.453
Ronny Cedeno .247/.295/.365, 105 starts .253/.295/.385

I was about to protest that Cedeno would hit for more power than y'all think, but he does have a career .356 slugging percentage. Sigh. It's been higher as a Pirate than it was earlier in his career, but still, there isn't much to dream on here.
