Projecting the Giants using Fangraphs' Fan Projection Tool


So I've been messing around with Fangraphs' fan projection tool for awhile now. I think its a really neat system that has some value. I just finished with the Giants position players. The hardest part is projecting player time ,especially this far away from opening day, as I have no idea who will get injured and who will win position battles this spring. Well without further ado here are my projections, they seem pretty fair and reasonable.
