Community Projection: Kevin Millar

New, 20 comments

In case you missed it in the thread below, Kevin Millar is indeed an Oriole (pending physical) for one year and $2.1 million.

I'll be honest, I do like the deal. It's extremely low-risk for a guy that has hit every year since 2000 except for 2005. I think it's worth a shot.

If nothing else, we've got a guy to replace Kline as the quotable Oriole of the year.

Here are Millar's last four years:

        AB   AVG   OBP   SLG   HR    BB/K
2002 FLA    438  .306  .366  .509   16   40/74
2003 BOS    544  .276  .348  .472   25  60/108
2004 BOS    508  .297  .383  .474   18   57/91
2005 BOS    449  .272  .355  .399    9   54/74

That's the line I'm looking for: AVG/OBP/SLG, HR, BB/K. Since we have no real idea yet how much Millar will be used, I'll leave it up to you whether you choose to project what he'd do in 450+ at-bats, or if you think he'll have less than that and want to project accordingly.

I'm going to post the Patterson and Tejada/Mora results tomorrow (the latter of which got less responses than I'd like, but it's also Tejada and Mora and less interesting to project, so I expected that), so if you want to get your word in on those guys, you've still got a little time.
