Community Projections 2008: Mike Cameron

New, comments

Mike Cameron signed as a free agent on Monday, January 14th, 2008 for 1 year from $6.25M up to $7M through bonuses based on plate appearances. He also has a club option for 2009 at $10M with a $.75M buyout. He's 35 years old and is beginning his 14th season. He plays a plus CF and when added to the roster set off a chain reaction that makes the brewers better on defense by pushing Hall to 3rd and Braun to LF. Last year in pitcher friendly petco park Cameron posted .242/.328/.431 to bring down his career line to .251/.341/.445. Cameron has not led the league in strikeouts since 2002, but he's finished in the top ten 8 times in his 13 seasons. He's 44th all-time, and top ten active at 1500... right behind Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds and Manny Ramirez.

Community Projection
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.

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

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.

Voting is still open for JJ Hardy and Ryan Braun and both could use a little love!

Results are posted for Jason Kendall, Prince Fielder, Rickie Weeks, and Bill Hall.
