The Pecota Projections for 2008 are slowly leaking out, and though I don't have a subscription, through google searches and other blogs I've been able to dig up projections for some of the guys I'm watching. I'm still considering signing up so I can just use Pecota whenever I feel like it, but between the free info bouncing around the internet and my own stat formulas I think I should be able to get all the information I want. I really like Pecota though and I think it's a fantastic system, I'm just too poor right now to pay for it. Maybe next year, or maybe three years from now when I get a real job.
Here's what I've been able to find on some of the big name guys so far:
Alex Gordon: Bluh...more of the same.
Ryan Zimmerman: Watch out, he could be big
Felix Pie and Lastings Milledge: Expect good showings
Wily Mo: 30+ home runs?
Dontrelle Willis: Not as bad as last year
Felix Hernandez: He'll get better, but still won't meet expectations
Johan Santana: Sub 3.00 ERA, lots of K's
Colby Rasmus: .245/.327/.437...whoa...
Pujols: Biggest, baddest mama-jamma ever
Rick Ankiel: 30+ home runs
Ryan Braun: Dude's for real
Dustin Pedroia: .288/.353/.420, not bad, not good, about right
Joba: 3.39 ERA out of the pen
Lincecum: 3.58 ERA, but doesn't go past 150 IP
Yovani Gallardo: 3.88 ERA
Chad Billingsley: 3.96 ERA
As more info leaks out I'll try and keep you all updated. Or, if you have anything you'd like to add, feel free to leave comments.
