What we're replacing


Iowa
 Share

Recommended Posts

We're replacing 7 of our 8 offensive starters from last year: Delgado, Enc, Sea Bass, JP, Luis, Lowell, LoDuca

 

Their numbers: 74 HR, 428 RBI (Average Player: .278 BA, 10 HR, 60 RBI)

 

 

 

I want you guys to estimate the numbers of Hermida, Willingham and Jacobs... and then add in the numbers of Hanley and Conine (wishful assumption).. and then just assume the average numbers of whoever we're putting at CF and 2B and see how those numbers stack up against the guys we're replacing.

 

Just curious.

The Powerhouse:

Cabrera .310 40HR 125RBI (I'm really expecting him to step it up a bit)

Hermida .290 30HR 100RBI (He showed that he can hit, and with that swing I don't see why he can't hit 30HR, the iffy will be his average.)

 

Jacobs .??? 30HR ??? (In 100 AB's he showed that he has tremendous power.)

Hanley: .280, 3, 40

Conine: .280, 9, 65

Jacobs: .270, 18, 75

Hermida: .285, 20, 85

Willingham: .300, 10, 65

Cabrera: .330, 40, 120

2B: .270, 5, 40

CF: .270, 5, 40

 

This is a really rough estimate, but the total comes to:

 

HR: 110

RBI: 530

 

Somehow we end up with a more powerful offense....Hmm....But honestly, those numbers seem accurate to me. Hermy can easily get 20 with his pop, and Jacobs has the pop too. Willy and Niner get some here and there, and Cabs can get 40, no doubt.

 

RBI numbers might be off a little, but who really knows..

 

Average BA is around .285....That seems off :D

 

 

Jacobs and Hermy can both get 30/100 stats, but not this year. They both need more time in the bigs, I think.

I'm all for optimism, but if that happens, I'll eat my face.

eh? Knock off 10 points on the BA if you want, but those HR numbers might actually be low.

It's gonna be hard to predict the numbers since Miggy's "protection" (Jacobs and Hermida) didn't get playing time until September. You also have to take into consideration That HanRam has never played in the majors, and even Aquila/Willy have very few ABs.

 

I can't give specific numbers, but IMO our offense won't be good until June (when a lot of the players get used to the big leagues).

 

Our line-up has the potential to be great one day, but it will take awhile.

Willy higher, Jacobs higher, Cabs higherand you can't really put the 2b and cf numbers that low until you know who they are.

I think that is more realistic, though I think Jacobs will hit more in the .265 - .270 range.

I don't know much about many, however I will predict my favorite offseason addition's numbers.

 

Mike Jacobs

 

.283, 25-29 HR, 75-85 RBI's, no more, no less!

 

Jacobs will do great, remember Preston Wilson, his first season he was a strike out machine but still belted about 25, I believe Jacobs has greater knowledge of the strike zone than Preston did at this point of his career, his patience will translate in a higher average, and his power numbers showed last year with minimal at bats. He can hit from both sides of the field which means he just can plain out hit, his defense I can question since I don't know much about, but I know that this kid has some lumber for this offense, I've been following him for the longest, since my friends in new york use to brag about him.

Depending on who the last couple of pieces are, this group could easily outhomer last year's team. The average will likely go down but the overall slugging could actually go up. Guys like JP, LoDuca, Castillo are high average but they're almost exclusively singles hitters. Lowell hit some doubles but that's about it. Niner didn't hit homers either.

 

Between those 7 players I think they'll hit 85, compared to 74 last season.

 

But after a year's experience, the group of Cabs/Hermy/Willy/Jacobs/Ramirez top 100 by themselves.

Reading the above posts, it just hit me. WHACK!!!

 

Most of us are all depressed about dismantling a 2005 team that only won 83 GAMES. Some of us on this site are giving the Fish a decent shot of winning 75-80 games this year anyway. Loria just decided that 50 million dollars wasn't worth 5-10 wins.

 

Hermida- .304 27 97

 

Cabrera- .311 36 118

 

Jacobs- .293 28 91

*best Fritz impersonation*

 

If those numbers happen for Jacobs and Hermy, I will eat my face.

New guy here.....

Someone mentioned that they believe Willy is going to put up big numbers this year.....If he has so much potential then why did Treanor platoon with The Duke all of 2005?

 

 

Because Willy can't really play catcher at an above average level yet, and he was hurt at the start of the year...since I'm assuming you're asking why Treanor was the back-up, not a "platoon" player.
