What kind of #'s can be expected out of Austin Kearns if he is traded or gets a full season of at bats in Cincy?

.300- 30 HR- 100 RBIs

Am I way too optimistic?

What about Wily Mo Pena and Griffey with full seasons?

For Kearn's I'd say something like:

WillyMo still has some growing pains to go through. Needs to reduce his K's to get his average up.

Griffey? Who's that? :-b

I think you might be better off not making projections for a guy like Kearns and just say that he'll hit, so long as he's healthy.

will be a stud if he ever stays healthy. Until then, you're playing with fire if you count on him to be anything more than your utility player in a 12 team mixed league. Just too snakebitten.

If he ever does stay healthy, he's got the potential to be a top 10-15 outfielder. Again, thats a gigantic IF

With his combination of raw power, plate patience, and sandbox home stadium, his potential has no ceiling.

I'd love to get 500+ Austin Kearns AB's but considering his injury history I wouldn't put much money on it.

Sorry, I find myself pathologically incapable of compiling projections for Kearns anymore. Or Griffey. Anytime I see either name on a sheet my vision blurs and the letters appear to spell "p..e..n..a" and "f..r..e..e..l".

Does anyone think that the fact that the Reds have so many injury problems is due to a poor training staff? I'm not saying they have a poor training staff but I am curious as to why they have so many injury problems.
