Converts the player's batting statistics into a context that is the same for everybody.

The major characteristics of the translation are: 1) that the translated EQA should equal the original, all-time adjusted EQA (within some margin for error); 2) that all seasons are expanded to a 162 game schedule; 3) that the statistics are adjusted to a season where an average hitter would have, per 650 PA: 589 AB, 153 H, 31 DB, 3 TP, 19 HR, 56 BB, 5 HBP, 113 SO, 10 SB, 5 CS, 79 R and 75 RBI. His rates would be a .260 batting average, .330 onbase average, .420 slugging average, and a .260 EQA with 76 EQR.

It's unrealistic to think Adam Dunn will finish a career .275 hitter nikki.

No no no, I said he will be a career .260-.265 career hitter, I think he will hit at least .275 this year as I have him pegged for a career year. (approximately .278, 53 HR's, 125 runs, 110 RBI's, 5-10 SB's).

I agree , Dunn is on the verge of exploding and hes not off to a bad start.I think he is maturing as a hitter

I hope you meant Adam Dunn

While Dunn is a known walking machine, Gomes might surprise you in that department. He's already walked 12 times this year in only 47 plate appearances, and he walked a decent amount last year - almost exactly once per 10 plate appearances, which is pretty good. I think Gomes is maturing as a hitter and the walks and power will continue in 06.
