Bill James Handbook 2010 Projections

Throwing out the opening pitch of the FanGraphs 2010 projection season are the Bill James Handbook projections. Huge thanks goes out to Baseball Info Solutions for allowing us to publish their projections again this year.

They are now available in all the player pages, but as usual if you want them in a sortable format with some extra goodies, you’ll have to purchase them yourself.

And for those of you who own the FanGraphs iPhone app, they’re already waiting for you in those player pages too. No update necessary!

    Check out Koji Uehara – he’s projected to have 25 games, all starts, but also 2 saves.

      Maybe they’re projecting a rule change where pitchers can re-enter games.

        Seriously. And .272 BA IIRC, which even if true (and I’d like to think its not considering his minor league track record) is a nice rebound for Bruce fans after this past year.

    How often are his projections right? So far he looks crazy for saying Big Z would have an ERA of 3.60, and projected Burnett to have a better ERA, 15 wins and 217 k’s. Oddly, he thinks Halladay’s ERA will jump while making the transition from the toughest division in baseball his whole career to the NL to play for a stacked team where he won’t lose while giving up 1 run in 8 innings anymore. He also only projects Doc to only get 17 wins? Jesus… don’t worry Bill, I will not be buying your book.

      To note, Bill James is not involved with the projections at all, he just lends his name to them.

      You may want to note that BJ actually projects Halladay to better his career marks by every measure, and that these projections are in line with all the other systems.

      I would love to hear your projections, especially how many wins he might amass. 17 is obviously ridiculously low. As many as ONE pitcher in the National League had more than that in 2009.

    Have enjoyed the Bill James Handbook for years. Will always buy. The projections are always the first out and very much on the mark. My question concerns one Carl Crawford. For the past two years his projection has been oddly low. He has had one bad year in the past five, yet his 2010 projection once again doesn’t reflect that. He remains one of the top fantasy players in the game and will shatter his latest projection of 156 hits and 82 runs scored.
