Has anybody checked out their online projections? Just wondering what others thought about them. I saw in another thread where some people liked thier magazine.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

These rankings and values are based on 2005 stats, not 2006 projected stats.

As for the magazine, save your $. They project Soriano to hit .282 with 90+ rbis and runs in RFK.

There isn't much of a history at the stadium to say its such a difficult pitchers park. It very well could be a horrible hitters park, but there isn't much of a history to effect your projections.

This is my opinion at least. I would personally shy away based on last season and the lack of history, however, I don't think its fair to right it off after 81 games.

I just compared the Sporting news projections to a link that someone posted in another thread for ESPN's projections

Guess What They're identical I wonder who copied from who

Lame I say

RFK had ten years as with a park index 94-100 in the 1960s, too. So, we don't just have 81 games, we have almost 900 games indicating that it's a moderate to strong pitchin gpark.

The reason they are identical is because the numbers listed on sporting news and espn are simply the final 2005 MLB player stats. Neither have posted free 2006 projections yet. I'm not sure if either site will?

The magazine isn't terrible, though you do have to adjust some of their rankings.

A 90 RBI season for Soriano isn't that far off the mark IMO. Now, the .282 avg and the 34 HRs they think he's going to hit is a little wrong. My projections for Soriano have him producing a 25/25 season with a .260 AVG, 90 runs and 90 RBIs.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I think you need to check that run and rbi projection against a good team run projection for the Nats. Last year they scored fewer just 639 runs, and it's impossible for any player on a team scoring that many runs to get 90 runs or rbis. This year, they may score slightly more, but it's doubtful they'll get over 700 runs. That makes it very, very difficult for a player with an OBP like Soriano to get 90 runs or rbis.
