    I thought they were pretty ON the mark, other than Kearns.

    They missed Pena, Lopez by a considerable margin as well.

    Wow, is there a rule that somebody has to make this exact same inane comment every year in the PECOTA thread?

    Gesh M2, haven't you read the rules of the board? It falls between the rules about posting that Dunn strikes out too much and the one about restructuring Pena's contract so he can be sent down.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    I've always thought that would be a good idea.

    My thought exactly, they are just stats folks, if they bother you so much then might I suggest you leave your snide comments about them elsewhere?

    I think they are low on Lopez, but given the historical performance of the rest of the Reds lineup should we expect any different? I kind of like what they have to say about EdE. That would be a nice first full season, not great, but good.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    275/.344/.485

    829 OPS at third.

    That would have been good enough for 6th overall in the majors last year (5th in the NL).

    Since Harang has improved his numbers every year, I wonder why the drop in his numbers.

    I'm really hoping Clussen takes the next step the way Aaron did last offseason.

    I agree but I think it shows just how valuable a decent thirdbasemen is. Perhaps the GABP version of Joe Randa should have netted more of a return?

    If Double E throws up those rates this year, mark me as thrilled. Here's hoping he approaches those in the spring and out of the gate so he fends off any dipstickish thoughts of Aurilia stealing AB's.

    Re: Pecota?

    PECOTA are kind of a fun little frippery, but honestly, one really has to wonder what the boys over there were thinking to project WMP with a .351 OBP for last year--there is nothing whatsoever in his profile that even hinted at his ability to do that. Players don't just stumble upon a .350 OBP--getting up over that mark indicates a deliberate and rare skill set. Every point over that mark raises a player's worth exponentially.
