Prince Fielder Projected

Prince Fielder's community projection looks lofty when compared to the other systems, but it's actually a downgrade from last year. Yes, it's only a difference of .011 OPS but given that Prince is only 24 years old projecting an improvement over last year can be legitimately supported. The major difference is the HR rate. bcb projects HR/AB of 8.3% (last year he hit a HR in 8.7% of his ABs) while chone, zips and marcel project 7.2%, 7.5%, 6.3% respectively. One look at hittracker allows us to confirm what we think we know already. Prince doesn't hit cheapies. I like our chances here to be more accurate than all three systems.

marcels 605 521 150 82 33  2 33 68 .288 .387 .549  .936

For marcels I calculated avg, obp, slg, ops using my projection tool.
