The Community is the most optimistic projection of all, even in the steal department. Do we know something that the other systems are missing, or did we just have a bunch of Greene Fanboys post? I personally believe that Greene WILL post Community-style numbers eventually, but perhaps not in 2005. I'd be surprised if his slugging percentage is that high in `05, given park factors, but I don't expect any huge slippage in his numbers. My own system projects a slight slippage in the SLG department from last year, but a steady OBP and slightly improved batting average. I think his breakout will be in '06. Greene is a solid player, and if personality and work ethic mean anything, he has a chance to get far beyond "solid" eventually.
