2006 CB normalized for Actual Playing Time

COMMENTARY:
I was wrong about the speed but everything else looks good to me. I projected a bit more power than in reality but if you look at the normalized numbers, I predicted 44 extra-base hits and he got 38. That's a difference of ONE extra base hit per month of playing time. I count this as a hit except for the speed.
