Prince Fielder: Prince has reported to spring training skinnier this year. which probably will help more in the field than at the plate. He had trouble digging out bad throws last year and made 17 errors. Expect that to go down as he get more agile. Should have a year more similiar to 2007 than 2008.
545 AB 45 HR 115 RBI 95 BB .292 AVG
Mike Lamb: Was somewhat better with Milwaukee than Minnesota. Not much more than a clubhouse guy.
132 AB 2 HR 18 RBI 12 BB .242 AVG
Rickie Weeks: Not only does Weeks have one of the worst gloves of all MLB second basemen, his batting has been shoddy. Could still progress though, so im expecting a better '09
492 AB 15 HR 52 RBI 78 BB .257 AVG
Craig Counsell: Will be helpful in a utility role, possibly more if Weeks has a season thats even worse than last years.........
232 AB 3 HR 22 RBI 39 BB .237 AVG
J.J Hardy: Will hit around 20 HR, bat around .280 with decent plate discipline. Thats my first scenario, my second is a breakout line, which could happen if he takes his game to the next level.
Line A: 567 AB 22 Hr 72 RBI 46 BB .275 AVG
Line B (breakout line) 595 AB 34 HR 96 RBI 59BB .297 AVG
Bill Hall: This is a tough call I expect a rebound, no starting third baseman should hit .225 2 years in a row, nevermind a talented player like Bill.
501 AB 27 HR 87RBI 45BB .254AVG
Ryan Braun: Although there have been jokes about him hitting 60 Home Runs this year, i would like to see him get to 40 first which I think he will this season.
588 AB 43 HR 122 RBI 47 BB .299 AVG
Mike Cameron: Cameron may be on the decline, this being the age that it really sets in for players like him. But he has been so consistent batting near 250 with near 20 HR every year. His career batting average is exactly .25000 so our projections are going to mirror all that, just for fun.
455 AB 20 HR 75 RBI 67BB .250 AVG
Corey Hart: Had a bad 2008, or as some argue a bad month or two. But unless his obp shows improvement one of the backups may steal time away from him.
472 AB 16 HR 61 RBI 23 BB .274 AVG
Chris Duffy: Wont make the team
Tony Gwynn Jr.: The Brewers hope he outplays Nixon and Duffy, but i think Nixon takes the 4th outfielder spot while Gwynn has the last bench spot.
92 AB 1HR 8 RBI 6BB .245 AVG
Trot Nixon: Nixon is the favorite (or so i've heard) to make the roster out of these three guys he will be the 4th outfielder and may get some AB's at first base. he hit righties much better than leftier, shouldnt go near a lefty PERIOD.
212 AB 6 HR 32 RBI 37BB .275 AVG.
Jason Kendall: Expect Kendalls usual offensive output, well continuing to gun down base runners and play a good catcher.
488 AB 5 HR 40 RBI 52 BB . 254 AVG
