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.
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.
