I don't have time to look at this too seriously but I have a couple of qualms right off the top.

There is no way Fielder should be projected to hit that many HR given the new park and his recent history. Any projection that results in 125 runs for anyone is probably on shaky ground, nobody hits 125 runs on a consistent basis no matter how good they are or what lineup they play in.

Are these projections you made or are they from some other source?

Also I think Agonz hitting .331 and Pence hitting .318 are pretty big stretches. Their high batting averages last year were very BABIP driven.

Holy cow!!! To project more than a handful of players to hit .300+ or score 100 runs or get 100 rbi's, is very daring of you, who are you Bill James.

No Castro for NL BA or Runs?

That's just the most obvious one for me.
