You have already heard from HLP about his projections on the Astros win total for 2010 using WAR. Over the next few weeks, you'll be hearing from DQ and clack on what they came up with. Since I'm pretty horrible with predictions, I thought it'd be more fun to come up with something a little different.
In the spirit of FanGraph's community projections, how about we band together here and predict what each member of the 25-man roster will do this season? You can be as scientific or as spontaneous as you like. Feel free to add whatever numbers or forecasts you'd like. So we have something to compare, for hitters let's include total plate appearances, a slash line, stolen bases and SB percentage and extra-base hits. For pitchers, let's go with total innings, ERA/FIP (whichever you'd prefer), strikeouts, walks and home runs allowed. Outside of that, you can put in whatever you'd like.
To get this done before the start of the season, let's go with a hitter and a pitcher each time with posts going up Mondays and Wednesdays. I'll keep track of what everyone projects and post the results each Friday. Sound like a plan? Good deal. Let's get to projecting!
First up, Roy Oswalt and Lance Berkman...
