James Jerry Hardy is 25 years old and entering his 4th season in the major leagues. He's in his first year of arbitration and went to the wire before settling near the midpoint at 2.65 million dollars for one year. An all-star last year, Hardy was actually leading the NL in homeruns at points in the first half. Seriously, that really happened. April and May last year were similar to his September of 2005. He slugged over .520 in all three of those months. A line drive pull hitter who works the count well we haven't really seen him put it all together for more than a third of a season. On June 1st last year Hardy was looking at his line in the newspaper and it sparkled back .304/.350/.567. From that day to the end of the season he cooled to post a .277/.323/.463 that line still bolstered his career stats to .263/.321/.429
Use any methods you want to make projections. 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.
I've created a player projection tool to help simplify the process. 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. Copy and paste that line to a comment. You are, of course, free and welcome to submit any projections you want in any format and we'll try to accommodate.
