CC.com Lineup Projections for 2007

New, 10 comments

Keep in mind, of course, that we're Orioles fans. Probably guesstimate that we're projecting 5-10% higher, at least, than we would if we were talking about another team's players. Or don't, I don't care.

            AB   AVG   OBP   SLG   HR   RBI
R Hernandez     466  .275  .342  .473   19    84
K Millar        474  .279  .378  .448   18    74
J Gibbons       425  .272  .328  .475   20    69
B Roberts       604  .296  .369  .457   15    65
M Mora          554  .279  .347  .420   17    82
M Tejada        648  .322  .374  .517   30   122

Nick Markakis - 34 doubles, 57/78 BB/K

Let's just say this team really hits like that. It's a good offensive team, then, and let's just say our pitchers are what we project them as, too. Then this is a team that could chase...80-85 wins.

Now, kablammo, let's reality check. Someone's going to get hurt, for one thing. The Yankees, Blue Jays and Red Sox are all good teams, and perhaps all improved from their '06 squads.

We can't contend, really. It would be a huge upset for the Orioles to even finish in third place this year.

But, the Tigers went to the World Series last season, so I say we're going to win the division. Not with the projections we came up with, no, no. The team will be MUCH better than that. Yeah. Yeah yeah yeah.

I don't mean to be vulgar or crass (earmuffs!), but can we just get to the fucking season already?
