    We should all hope for the 1998-2000 Griffey:

    .281 | 586 AB | 48 HR | 133 RBI | 342 TB

    and not the 2001-2003 Griffey:

    .271 | 242 AB | 14 HR | 38 RBI | 124 TB

Didn't he hit like 5 home runs right before he blew up this year? Maybe the last week or 2? That is amazing that throwing out that little blip he would have had less than 10 home runs over a bunch of games. I really feel sorry for this guy. I hope he turns into Mark McGwire after his 2 or 3 seasons of nothing.

    I'm betting on 38 home runs and 108 RBIs. .279 batting average but most importantly 140 games played.
    Paul, those numbers are averaged for each set of those 3 years. The total numbers are:

    Code:
    '98-'00: .281 | 1759 AB | 144 HR | 398 RBI | 1025 TB
    '01-'03: .271 |  727 AB |  43 HR | 114 RBI |  372 TB

    I predict for 2004:

    550 AB | .280 AVG | 41 HR | 111 RBI | 80 BB | 111 SO

    I don't even want to look at this post in October, but here goes:
    Griffey-.291 46 117
    Dunn-.271 44 120
    Kearns-.322 34 118

    Hey, it's February and every fan has a right to be optimistic at this time of year.

    154 Games. 42 HR's 133 RBI. Sit out 5 games with a tight Hammy in August. Junior will also hit .295 and have an OBP of .444. This is what the crystal ball says.

    Adam Dunn .248 47HR's and 116 RBI. 158 K's and 98 BB's.

    Kearns .311 28HR and 79 RBI. 131 Games played. Kearns goes down in August for a month.

    Griff and Kearns go to ALL Star Game.
    OBP is high for Jr. Beyond that, I think he does that.

    Dunn hits 35-40 HR with the rest of those numbers in the ballpark.

    Kearns hits 90 RBIs but everything else is ballpark too.

    Nice.

    Others.

    Jiminez bats .310 with a .380 OBP and scores 120 runs out of the leadoff spot

    Larkin bats .270 in about 400 ABs with 12-15 HR and 50 RBIs.

    Casey bats .290 with 20 HR and 75 RBI

    LaRue bats .240 with 20 HR in 200 AB

    Larson bats .250 with a .320 OBP and 20 HR in 500 AB

    Pena is your primary OF backup and gets 250 AB, due to a reasonably healthy year for everyone. Bats .230 with 10 HR, 30 BB and 60 Ks

    Freel is your primary IF backup. He gets 400 AB, much at SS when Jiminez plays there and Freel takes over 2B. He bats .280 with little power or walks but adds some speed and scrapiron tendancies to the club.

    I wouldn't dare project the pitching.

    For what it's worth.....I think Griffey will remain healthy and put up 45+ HRs along with 110+ RBIs.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    Our luck, Jr will pull a "Vanderwal" and tear his ACL while shoveling his driveway in Florida!
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    That old saying "follow the trend" would lead me to believe that Griffey will get hurt in 2004. Hopefully, it will be minor and still allow him to post semi-big numbers: .280 35 HR 110 RBI

    I think this is the make or break year for Dunn. He'll either move forward and start to live up to those early expectations, or he'll be exposed as just a marginal HR hitter who strikes out way too much.

    Team Clark:

    I love the optimism. I wish I could work around people as optimistic as you all day.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    Griffey in 2004

    I was wondering what everyone's predictions will be for him whether it'd be getting hurt or statistical wise?
