Inspired by this examination of the Giants' offensive wretchedness, here's a quick set of predictions:

C - Molina - 490 AB, 15 HR
1B - Ortmeier - 415 AB, 14 HR
2B - Durham - 320 AB, 7 HR
3B - Frandsen - 440 AB, 11 HR
SS - Vizquel - 490 AB, 1 HR
LF - Roberts - 355 AB, 2 HR
CF - Rowand - 530 AB, 20 HR
RF - Winn - 510 AB, 13 HR

OF - Lewis - 240 AB, 5 HR
OF - Davis - 260 AB, 2 HR
INF - Aurilia - 350 AB, 7 HR
Backup C - Alfonzo? - 150 AB, 4 HR
Backup INF - Velez? Ochoa? Harper? - 150 AB, 1 HR

OF - Schierholtz (On AAA/MLB shuttle) - 200 AB, 7 HR

Assorted call-ups (Injuries, Sept. roster expansion, etc....) - 200 AB, 3 HR

Pitchers - 300 AB, 1 HR

Totals:

5400 AB, 113 HR

Total home runs in 2008: Over or under this hastily made projection?

Bonus question: Last year, the Giants successfully completed 67 sacrifice bunts, and they hit 131 home runs. Will the 2008 Giants have more completed sacrifice bunts than home runs hit?
