6 Apr

also available at www.SethSpeaks.net

We are now one game into the 162 (or 163) game season, so I wanted to post all of my predictions for the world to mock and ridicule. You had previously seen my projections for Joe Mauer and Delmon Young, but here are the rest of the Twins hitters.

  BA OBP SLG OPS 2B 3B HR RBI SB
Joe Mauer 0.321 0.404 0.517 0.921 41 2 24 104 2
Jose Morales 0.265 0.308 0.299 0.607 6 0 0 11 0
Drew Butera 0.227 0.261 0.273 0.534 1 0 0 3 0
Jim Thome 0.243 0.348 0.491 0.839 8 0 13 39 0
Justin Morneau 0.294 0.365 0.543 0.908 38 1 32 122 0
Orlando Hudson 0.274 0.347 0.408 0.755 27 5 8 54 6
JJ Hardy 0.287 0.349 0.448 0.797 34 2 18 82 2
Nick Punto 0.262 0.332 0.371 0.703 22 3 3 41 12
Brendan Harris 0.257 0.306 0.372 0.678 23 0 9 39 0
Alexi Casilla 0.159 0.197 0.202 0.399 2 1 0 8 1
Delmon  Young 0.309 0.344 0.471 0.815 33 5 21 82 18
Denard Span 0.296 0.381 0.411 0.792 25 8 8 56 26
Michael Cuddyer 0.281 0.360 0.508 0.868 33 3 27 107 4
Jason Kubel 0.317 0.396 0.578 0.974 43 1 34 132 0

Yes, you read it right. I believe that Jason Kubel will put up better offensive numbers than Joe Mauer. Take a look, review the numbers. Let me know what you think… Leave your comments.

    World Series Champs if those come to fruition.

    Those numbers will never happen for Cuddyer if pitchers exploit him swinging at breaking balls low and outside. He is good for one of those swings almost every at bat.

    The only thing that really jumps out to me is 3 HR for Punto. Unless those are all inside the park jobs I would bet the under on that a million times.

    I think that you have Morales a little too low. The last time his BA was under .300 in any level was 2006, so I am thinking more like .290/.345/.375 with as many RBI and he and Redmond had last season (14). I agree with the previous comment that Cuddyer is too high. I hate to say it, but last season was a fluke (I hope he proves me wrong, again). I see him having numbers less than those of Delmon, both as far as OPS and HR/RBI go. 22 doubles from Punto, and .109 isoP would be career highs and I just don’t see those happen. I’d cut the doubles a bit and the isoP to .060 or so. Harris+Punto 44 doubles? Gaetti had 36 of those in ’87. That would be amazing, but again hard to see it happen. One of them will not get the playing time to get there. If Casilla hits like that he will be history by the All-star break and someone like Hughes or Valencia will be up and actually producing

    880 runs…….not sure if that is going to happen.
