Looking Back at Rankings and Projections Part 6

Picking up where we left off…

 

Tommy Hanson – 2012 Projection;  14 Wins 3.10 ERA, 180 K's, 1.20 WHIP in 180 innings

Actual;  13 W, 4.48 ERA, 161 K, 1.45 WHIP, 174.2 Innings.

 

Hanson did not meet expectations this year which shouldn’t be surprising considering his injury history. A Disastrous July and August did him in this year.  Miss.

 

Corey Hart – 2012 Projection;  .285 AVG, 29 HR, 80 RBI, 7 steals, .340 OBP and .850 OPS in 540 AB's.

Actual; .270 AVG, 30 HR, 83 RBI, 5 steals, .334 OBP, .841 OPS in 562 AB.

 

Upon further review, I forgot to project a runs total for Hart. Upon even further review, I nailed this projection. Hear that trumpet sound? That’s me tooting my own horn.

 

Carlos Santana – 2012 Projection; .270 AVG, 28 HR, 89 RBI, 70 Runs, 5 Steals, .360 OBP and .830 OPS in 550 AB's

Actual; .252 AVG, 18 HR, 76 RBI, 72 Runs, 3 steals, .360 OBP, .785 OPS in 507 AB’s

 

I thought I was going to have missed pretty badly on Carlos going into this series, however the damage wasn’t as bad as I anticipated. Still a miss though. Can I take solace in the fact that I wasn’t the only FB365 mind to be high on Santana?

 

Paul Konerko – 2012 Projection; .300 AVG, 30 HR, 95 RBI, 82 Runs, .370 OBP, .860 OPS in 550 AB's.

Actual; .298 AVG, 26 HR, 75 RBI, 66 R, .371 AVG, .857 OPS in 533 AB’s.

 

Another hit here. I love it when a plan (trending decrease in flyballs and increase in line drives) leads me to make a correct projection.

 

Corey Luebke – 2012 Projection; 11 W, 3.18 ERA, 170 K, 1.10 WHIP in 155 IP

Actual; 3 W, 2.61 ERA, 23 K, 1.16 WHIP, in 31 IP

 

Tommy John surgery ended his season way early, but it looked like he got off to the start he needed to meet my projection. Can’t take a hit or miss here though. Incomplete!

 

I went 2-2 here, since Luebke has an incomplete. Up to 13-14-2 on the series.
