My projection: 425 AB, .277/.324/.455, 15 HR, 59 RBI, 28 BB
I don't know if I'm thinking more in terms of a little time with injury or just the mess of positioning this team has taking away some of his time, or both. So I figured 425 was a safe estimation. Turns out that when we added all of ours up and divided, so did everyone:
AB AVG OBP SLG HR RBI BB 425 .272 .328 .475 20 69 36
Gibbons has projections that he cashes in on the 30 home run potential and projections that he crashes in on another season where he's useless. I was somewhere in the middle.
I think this is the most interesting question about Jay Gibbons right now, though: If this team was going into the 2007 season without him, would you think any less of their chances?
