Community Projections 2008: Rickie Weeks

New, 10 comments

Rickie Weeks enters his 5th season in the major leagues at just 25 years old. He falls short of acquiring the necessary service time to qualify as a super two and,like Prince Fielder, will play one more season of minimum wage baseball. A popular breakout candidate every year 2008 is no exception for many baseball speculators. Currently, weeks is being plunked in over 3% of his plate appearances, a full percentage point over Craig Biggio's career rate. Last year Weeks got off to a slow start, and was sent to the minor leagues to work some stuff out. In 43 games to finish the season Weeks hit .273/.442/.553 to bolster his season line to .235/.374/.433.

Community Projection
We'll go through the 8 position players in order around the diamond, perhaps a couple of bench players and then starting rotation. I'll tally up the results in a spreadsheet for everyone to see. Use any methods you want to make projections, but please submit them in the comments to the appropriate projection thread as a single line of comma separated values. For the hitters we'd like to project pa,ab,h,1b,2b,3b,hr,bb,avg,obp,slg,ops.

For Example:
player,pa,ab,h,1b,2b,3b,hr,bb,avg,obp,slg,ops
NLAverageHitter,650,585,153,102,31,3,17,65,.262,.335,.412,.747

You are, of course, free and welcome to submit any projections you want in any format and I'll try to accomodate them.

I've created a player projection tool to help you create a projection. Simply fill out the values for Plate Appearances (pa), Singles (1b), Doubles (2b), Triples (3b), Homeruns (hr), and Walks (bb) and the rest will be calculated for you and outputted below in a comma separated string perfectly formatted for submission. Simply copy and paste that line to a comment.

Voting is still open for Jason Kendall and Prince Fielder
