The folks over at Minor League Ball and other SB Nation sites have done this type of thing before, and I think it's always a pretty interesting way to see what people are thinking, so I'm going to try it here.
The idea is simple: Project the stats for [X] for the upcoming season. Hopefully this'll go well enough that we can run through most of the team. We'll start with the newest Oriole, Corey Patterson.
Here are his numbers from the last four seasons:
AB AVG OBP SLG HR SB/CS BB/K 2002 CHC 592 .253 .284 .392 14 18/3 19/142 2003 CHC 329 .298 .329 .511 13 16/5 15/77 2004 CHC 631 .266 .320 .452 24 32/9 45/168 2005 CHC 451 .215 .254 .348 13 15/5 23/118
What I'm looking for is the following Patterson projection: AVG/OBP/SLG line, HR, SB/CS and BB/K. I won't do the same thing for every player, because who cares how many bases Javy Lopez steals, for instance.
Once we get this, I'll total it up, figure out the community average, and after the season we'll see how close we were. I'm not going to post mine until I put up the total average.
