Community Projection '08: The Two Jays, Luis Luis and Moore, Moore, Moore!

New, 11 comments

There's still one more hitter to go after this group, but let's jumble a bunch of them together and get them out of the way. Nobody is terribly excited about anyone in this group, I don't suspect.

With a lot of these guys, you might have to guess on the type of playing time they're going to get. Do your best. Frankly with some of them, the less, the better.

Project the line given for the player.

Contestant #1: Jay Gibbons

He is a horrible piece of crap, my least favorite Oriole, and I think I'll leave it at that. He is a drain on the team's resources, and the fact that they gave him an extension was stupid the moment they did it. Some felt differently. I did not.

Gibby's last three years:

                  AB   AVG   OBP   SLG   2B   HR  RBI    BB/K
2005 Baltimore 488 .277 .317 .516 33 26 79 28/56
2006 Baltimore 343 .277 .341 .458 23 13 46 32/48
2007 Baltimore 270 .230 .272 .348 14 6 28 15/52

Contestant #2: Jay Payton

The other idiot Jay. The minute they signed him as a free agent, I knew exactly what to expect. Crap play, whining, and all the rest of Jay Payton's notable contributions to major league baseball.

Ugh.

BONUS! -- Predict the date he's sent back to the minors!

Contestant #4: Scott Moore

I know we all like Moore (or many of us do so far, anyway), but let's keep expectations realistic, huh? This is no blue chipper. However, there's no reason he can't be a decent contributor at the ML level based on his numbers.
