Re: Reds 2008 ZiPS Projections
I half expected Norris Hopper's projected SLG to be lower than his OBP.
I'd love to see Drew Stubbs and Chris Dickerson combine to see 1014 AB so they can whiff 365 times between them. That would be special.
72% SB rate for Ryan Freel seems about right, given his propensity to create outs on the basepaths. Not even Farney can help him from getting picked off or avoid getting caught stealing.
If Brandon Phillips projects for only 568 AB, then I can only hope it means he's never batting any higher than 5th in the order.
As long as Adam Dunn's AVG is within 5% of his weight, that's good enough, right?
Tom Shearn's projections must have been so outrageously awesome that they are too good for publication, b/c he is, after all, the answer to 2008.
