A Look Toward 2010: The Offense

One of the ways to ease the pain of a baseball-less offseason is the annual Bill James Handbook.  The 2010 version will be released on November 1, 2010, but the fine folks at ACTA Sports provided us with an early look at the player projections.  Here's a look at the 2010 projections for the Dodgers, with a look back at how their 2009 projections fared.

I threw in prOPS from The Hardball Times, short for "predicted OPS," which is "a formula for predicting what a player's OPS is likely to be in the future based on his batted balls, strikeouts, home runs and walks," to see if there was any luck based on batted balls.
