PECOTA time

Baseball Prospectus's 2007 projections are out. At a glance, the hitter projections are very encouraging, the pitcher projections (which are much less reliable) not so much.

Quick summary:  

  • Zito: 4.22 ERA
  • big comeback from Randy Winn
  • substantial power dropoff from Molina
  • Durham holds on to most of his improvement
  • Linden's the third best hitter on the team
  • Pedro Feliz (just to spite us!) has a career year
  • The real jawdroppers are the low-level prospect projections, which are so good that I wonder whether there was a glitch of some kind. Try these on for size:
  • Ben Copeland: .274/.333/.412
  • Emmanuel Burris: .281/.331/.344
  • Antoan Richardson: .289/.348/.385
  • Frandsen, Lewis & Schierholtz look good as well.
