I could find more, but not willing to do the work. Also mike young will not keep up .370, but .300-.330 is believable. 100 runs is a definite possibility, as is maybe 20 homers. 15 SB could happen too. 70-80 RBIs also. RBIs are a crapshoot though because people have to be on base and such, so they are hard to predict.
This my point exactly. You are predicting Young to have increases in every statiscal category. Nonetheless, even if Young spikes in every category (highly unlikely) Jeter's career averages are still better
Jeter's career averages: 122 runs, 17 hrs, 82 rbis, 24 sb, 314 avg
Your Young Projections: 100 runs, 20 hrs, 70-80 rbis, 15 sb, 300-330 avg
Even if Young spikes in every category and has a career year, even if Jeter has an average year, Jeter is still a better FB player. And if Jeter has a better than average year, no contest.
Plus, if you could find some statistical analysis, to prove Young will spike in any category it would be much appreciated. 1 month and 1 week is not enough proof for me.
