Yeah, i dont have the pirates looking too good this year. As for how I do them, some believe they are educated guesses. But I base previous stats, splits, the lineup they are in, stadium they are in, and several other factors that are calculated together. I also look at similar players, look at age, and factor in the "prime" years. I have a calculator next to me when I do it. For someone like Nyjer Morgon, I look at minor league numbers, and also compare how players do in the second year. It takes about 45 minutes in all.

I think Bay will bounce back closer to what he has put up before last season (mostly his avg seems to low by 20-25 points to me). I don't think he is done yet.

Not very good numbers for Snell either but it could happen I suppose.

Why isn't Nate McClouth the starting CF?

How is Freddy Sanchez's batting average only .294? He was the batting champion in 2006, and in 2007 he batted over .300 even with the injury he had in the beginning of the year.
