In case you missed it, we’re doing community projections again this year. Read the introduction to learn more about the comatosely accurate IVIEs, available only here at Ducksnorts.
To the outfield we go…
Floyd is one of those guys who even when he can’t do anything else will still be able to hit, which is good because he can’t do anything else.
My two underlying assumptions with Gerut are that he’ll slip from last year’s performance and he won’t make it through the season unscathed. Beyond that, I have no idea what to expect.
I hope folks appreciate how great Giles was in 2008. At his age, he won’t do that again, but he’ll continue to provide value until he’s traded.
Hairston is turning into a handy fourth outfielder. I could see him getting moved at some point during the season — maybe after one of his hot streaks.
Headley’s projections assume he won’t hurt himself trying to play left field. Actually, everyone else’s projections assume he won’t hurt them.
I could see Venable performing much better than this. His minor-league numbers don’t paint the picture of a ballplayer, but he sure looked like one in September.
You know the drill: give me your guesses in the format PA, BA/OBP/SLG. We’ll cover the pitchers next week.
