Community Projections

Ok, let's switch gears from how silly John's Crystal Balls can be and take a look at how YOU, the Community, did with your Community Projections.

Scott Thorman.

Community Projection: 121 games, 392 at-bats, 104 hits, .265, 21 doubles, 1 triple, 16 homers, 63 RBI, 35 walks, 80 strikeouts, 2 steals.

Reality: 120 games, 287 at-bats, 62 hits, .216, 18 doubles, 0 triples, 11 homers, 36 RBI, 14 walks, 70 strikeouts, 1 steal.

Comparison: There is a reason the Braves traded for Mark Teixeira.

Gary Matthews Jr.

Community Projection: 143 games, 560 at-bats, 155 hits, .276, 32 doubles, 4 triples, 17 homers, 72 RBI, 55 walks, 85 strikeouts, 12 steals

Reality: 140 games, 516 at-bats, 130 hits, .252, 26 doubles, 3 triples, 18 homers, 72 RBI, 55 walks, 102 strikeouts, 18 steals.

Comparison: Interesting. Off on the batting average by 20 points, but pretty close otherwise.

Rickie Weeks.

Community Projection: 145 games, 537 at-bats, 158 hits, .294, 31 doubles, 6 triples, 20 homers, 74 RBI, 55 walks, 116 strikeouts, 28 steals.

Reality: 118 games, 409 at-bats, 96 hits, .235. 21 doubles, 6 triples, 16 homers, 36 RBI, 78 walks, 116 strikeouts, 25 steals.

Comparison: I still have no question about Weeks' ability to be an outstanding player if he can ever stay healthy.

Alexis Rios.

Community Projection: 146 games, 530 at-bats, 156 hits, .294, 35 doubles, 6 triples, 23 homers, 87 RBI, 43 walks, 96 strikeouts, 17 steals.

Reality: 161 games, 643 at-bats, 191 hits, .297, 43 doubles, 7 triples, 24 homers, 84 RBI, 55 walks, 103 strikeouts, 17 steals.

Comparison: Off on the playing time, but on an at-bat basis the projection was excellent. Pro-rated for 643 at-bats, the CP was 42 doubles, 7 triples, 28 homers, 105 RBI, 52 walks, 116 strikeouts, 21 steals. Good job guys!
