Hello again, everyone!<br /><br /><br />My participation in online baseball chat tailed off significantly last year due to changing jobs, buying a house, and raising a kid. Now I'm back. <br /><br /><br />The following are my pre-season projections for Reds</a> players for the 2012 season, along with their actual numbers. Let's see how I did.<br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Catcher<br /><br /></span>Ryan Hanigan<br />Projected</strong>: .280/.370/.380 | 5 HR | 0 SB<br /><strong>Actual</strong>: .274/.365/. | 2 HR | 0 SB<br /><br /><strong>Devin Mesoraco<br />Projected: </strong>.245/.330/.400 | 13 HR | 0 SB<strong><br />Actual</strong>: .212/.288/.352 | 5 HR | 1 SB<br /><br /><br />Pretty decent on Hanigan. Mesoraco was disappointing.<br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">1st Base<br /><br /></span>Joey Votto<br />Projected: </strong>.315/.420/.540 | 32 HR | 10 SB<strong><br />Actual</strong>: .337/.474/.567 | 14 HR | 5 SB<br /><br /><br />He was better than expected, but missed some time.<br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">2nd Base<br /><br /></span>Brandon Phillips<br />Projected: </strong>.280/.340/.445 | 17 HR | 10 SB<strong><br />Actual</strong>: .281/.321/.429 | 18 HR | 15 SB<br /><br /><br />Close....<br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Shortstop</span><br /><br />Zack Cozart<br />Projected: </strong>.250/.320/410 | 14 HR | 16 SB<strong><br />Actual</strong>: .246/.288/.399 | 15 HR | 4 SB<br /><br /><br />Over-estimated OBP and SB a bit... <br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">3rd Base<br /><br /></span>Scott Rolen<br />Projected: </strong>.255/.310/.400 | 8 HR | 1 SB<strong><br />Actual</strong>: .245/.318/.398 | 8 HR | 2 SB<br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Left Field<br /><br /></span></strong>I projected Chris Heisey</a> to win this position and hit 24 HR. He didn't. And he didn't. I had nothing for Ryan Ludwick</a> in my projections.<br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Center Field<br /><br /></span>Drew Stubbs<br />Projected: </strong>.250/.330/.390 | 17 HR | 36 SB<strong><br />Actual</strong>: .213/.277/.333 | 14 HR | 30 SB<br /><br /><br />You just don't realize how bad he was until you put it on paper. Enjoy him, Cleveland!<br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Right Field<br /><br /></span>Jay Bruce<br />Projected: </strong>.275/.355/.495 | 34 HR | 6 SB<strong><br />Actual</strong>: .252/.327/.513 | 34 HR | 9 SB<br /><br /><br />Nailed the HR total.<br /><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Pitchers<br /><br /></span>Johnny Cueto<br />Projected: </strong>14-8 | 3.25 ERA | 1.17 WHIP | 190 IP<strong><br />Actual</strong>: 19-9 | 2.78 ERA | 1.17 WHIP | 217 IP<br /><br /><strong>Mat Latos<br />Projected: </strong>14-10 | 3.55 ERA | 1.18 WHIP | 200 IP<strong><br />Actual</strong>: 14-4 | 3.48 ERA | 1.16 WHIP | 209.1 IP<br /><br /><strong>Mike Leake<br />Projected: </strong>12-11 | 3.80 ERA | 1.20 WHIP | 175 IP<strong><br />Actual</strong>: 8-9 | 4.58 ERA | 1.35 WHIP | 179 IP<br /><br /><strong>Bronson Arroyo<br />Projected: </strong>8-11 | 4.90 ERA | 1.35 WHIP | 180 IP<strong><br />Actual</strong>: 12-10 | 3.74 ERA | 1.21 WHIP | 202 IP<br /><br /><strong>Homer Bailey<br />Projected: </strong>6-6 | 4.40 ERA | 1.27 WHIP | 110 IP<strong><br />Actual</strong>: 13-10 | 3.68 ERA | 1.24 WHIP | 208 IP<br /><br /><strong>Aroldis Chapman<br />Projected: </strong>2-4 | 3.75 ERA | 1.40 WHIP | 90 IP<strong><br />Actual</strong>: 5-5 | 1.51 ERA | 0.81 WHIP | 71.2 IP<br /><br /><br />So way too high on Leake, too low on Bronson, Homer, Cueto, and Chapman, and just right on Latos.<br /><br /><br />I'll post 2013 projections for Reds players sometime in the next week or so.

Difficult to read your Aroldis Chapman forecast.  Closer or Starter?  My fantasy team need to know. 


BTW, you can edit and remove all the junk in your copy.  Peace, yogi
