Community Projection Results: Stephen Strasburg

Amazingly, we had only 11 entries for this, and one of them required major "adjustments" to the innings pitched category to make workable. The results:

21 games, 20 starts, zero complete games, 121 innings, 56 runs, 50 earned, 3.74 ERA, 118/42 K/BB, 116 hits allowed, 12 homers, 8-6 record, 8.78 K/9, 3.12 BB/9, 8.63 H/9.

ZIPS:    114 innings, 4.18 ERA, 113/36 K/BB, 115 hits, 10-9 record, 8.92 K/9, 2.84 BB/9, 9.07 H/9.
PECOTA Mean:  191 innings, 4.45 ERA, 220/84 K/BB, 180 hits, 26 homers, 10-11 record, 10.37 K/9, 3.96 BB/9, 8.48 H/9.

There aren't many formal projections with Strasburg, and everyone is just guessing here since Strasburg has no pro numbers to look at and translation of college statistics is highly problematic.  I do find it interesting that the community and ZIPS have a much higher opinion of Strasburg's control than PECOTA does, but that PECOTA's K/IP projection is much more aggressive.
