Re: Reds 2008 ZiPS Projections
Roughly an .800 OPS for Jay Bruce as a 21 year old centerfielder that projects to be a little above average in CF? Yeah, I will take that every day of the week.
Little low on Dunns slugging line, but his AVG/OBP is something I could certainly see.
Votto's line looks good, but I think his BB/K rate will be a little better than projected (more like 70/120ish).
I like Phillips a little more than they do in the slugging department.... otherwise it looks about right.
Really interesting how much power it projects Danny Dorn to have.
Also very interesting how little the system likes Adam Rosales. I think he could do MUCH better than what he is projected at.
Don't like what it has Bailey at for reasons that have been discuss a billion times. Really surprised by the HR rate it has Bailey at.
Think Volquez will also do quite a bit better than these projections have.
