First off a hello to all you PAH9ers; second, thanks to Erik for letting me tag along over here.
For those that haven’t heard of me I used to write here. I’ll basically be doing the same thing over here that I did over there, which means a steady diet of numbers, graphs, and pitch f/x. Some of it will be broad spectrum, but most of it will be Cards focused (or at least brought back to the Cards). Now back to your regularly scheduled analysis.
CHONE projections for hitters are out, so now we can provide another piece of the 2010 projected value puzzle. First just a quick table of the “relevant” Cardinals and their projected wOBA (for full stat lines go poke around the linked site)
|Name||2010 Projected wOBA|
It’s good (but maybe overly optimistic?) to see both Freese and Craig come out as better than league average performers offensively. That really bodes well for Freese as all signs point to him being a capable (i.e. league average-ish defender). It’s much less stellar to see Boog so low.
