good projections, the only one i disagree with is rich hill, i think he will get double digit wins, but will have 12 wins and about 8-9 wins. Anyways i think it is great. you you mind doing the marlins, i am from there and I have a fantasy site for the marlins I will also publish it on, if that is okay

marquis ERA will be better about mid four, and will win around 13.

derosa will hit over .270 avg

murton will homer over 20

i think hill's era should be lower

Only a small quibble, but I don't see how Hill will win 14 games and only strike out 124 batters. He had 90 Ks in 99 innings last year (79 K in 80 IP in the second half when he figured it out), and 227 Ks in his last 165 innings in AAA. If he pitches enough to win 14 games, I don't see how he won't top 150 Ks.

I thought Pie was a starting outfielder?

Eli 4:24 PM CST  

if JACQUE JONES IS TRADED AND FELIX PIE PLAYS REGULAR OUTFIELD IN SPRING TRAINING, a projection will come...but as of right now, he will get the starting job in 2008

Will these predictions add up to 86 wins, as predicted by SI and the stat-y folks?

I, for one, am predicting 89 wins.

Eli 12:26 AM CST  

well when I know who the fifth starter is, I will let you know. But if the bullpen can get at least 20 wins on its own, then yes we should get close to 90
