Some Wild Projections

With the year reaching the one third mark last night, I thought I would project the Tigers final stats by tripling their current stats. They would finish 90-72 which is right about where I projected them prior to the season but some of the individual stats would be quite interesting:

  • Curtis Granderson would get 51 doubles, 27 triples and 24 home runs to go with 18 stolen bases and 91 RBI out of the lead off spot. Sam Crawford would like those numbers.
  • Magglio Ordonez would bat .353/.426/.667 with 81 doubles, 36 homers, 150 RBI and 141 runs. Those look like MVP numbers to me. Hank Greenberg would be impressed.
  • Gary Sheffield would get 96 walks, 21 steals and score 141 runs. Those look like the stats of the perfect leadoff man.
  • Sean Casey would get 0 homers.
  • Jeremy Bonderman would go 12-0 and Chad Durbin 12-3.
  • Todd Jones would have a 6.04 ERA but save 45 games.
  • Jose Mesa would have a 12.34 ERA.

    Granderson's extra-base hits are one the real "under the radar" stories of the season so far. 50-plus doubles and 20-plus triples sound like numbers from about 1908, but to add in 20-plus homers (and steals) is just bizarre.
