The Padres’ Zips Projections for 2008 are available. For some reason they’re all jumbly in my browser, so I copied the data to a monospace text editor (gedit) for easy viewing.
The first thing that jumps out at me is the team OBP, that would be awesome: .351, .345, .370, .375, .366, .350. Those are the numbers projected for Adrian, Kevin, Morgan Ensberg, Brian Giles, Josh Bard, Chase Headley. If that happens next year (it won’t) I’ll buy Tony LaRussa’s book.
Never mind Khalil Green looking at a .300 OBP. We’ll save that discussion for another post.
This gets me thinking: Kouz in left, Headley / Ensberg at third leaves money for a centerfielder and starting pitcher right? Git er done KT.
