I am not sure if this has been posted before, but I am curious right now as to what everyone believes (now when I say that I mean what you really think he will do, not what you wish he will do or whatever) Chris Denorfia's stats may be for the rest of this season and this to throw a curveball in there just for fun, what you think he will put up say for his career. Will he develop into a great power hitter, more of an average hitter and get a ton of hits, or will he be a utility-type player and be known for speed? I know it is hard to predict these things, but let's just take a roll of the dice. So to get things started, I know that they are sometimes way off, but here is what cbs.sportsline has projected for the 2006 season for Denorfia for the rest of the way...
.282 BA 72 Hits 8 HR 33 RBI 5 SB
.295 BA 90 Hits 15 HR 52 RBI 10 SB
Career (I hope I don't get bombed here and are totally off)
.315 BA 2,368 Hits 256 HR 1,199 RBI 350 SB
If I had to name a player who I think he will resemble, I would have to say a Craig Biggio type. Not a guy who is known for say being a five-tool player, but also not one that is known for powers and/or speed or anything of the like. Just a good all around player who hits for average the majority of the time. Now I am sure this type of topic has been beaten to death, I just hope I have taken a different spin on this one hopefully.
