Edwin Encarnacion 259/.343/.465/.808 28 doubles, 21 Hr, 5.4 RC/27, 64 Runs, 69 RBI, 129 G
I'd be quite happy with this from Edwin if he plays a decent 3B. He looks to have a strong arm, I'm thinking with help from Brian Butterfield through spring training and we'll have a good player there. Or it is possible I'm kidding myself.
Randy Ruiz 294/.352/.517/.869 13 doubles, 9 Hr, 26 Runs, 31 RBI, 6.55 RC/27, 55 G
Totally impossible to predict what will happen with Ruiz. If Cito is still manager, I doubt he'd play this much. Cito doesn't like Lind in LF so Ruiz wouldn't be able to DH and he doesn't like Ruiz at 1B. If we get a new manager, you never know. Also if we sign someone life Jason Bay there isn't a role for Randy. He's not going to be a star, but I don't think he'd be any worse defensively than Kevin Millar was. I do have a feeling he will be up and down a few times next year, the team doesn't ‘have to worry about option years at his age.
Adam Lind .305/.364/.542/.907 43 doubles, 31 Hr, 7.34 RC/27, 90 Runs, 113 RBI, 153 G
They think last year's play is his new level of ability. I figured there would be a little hedging of bets but I'd take that season from him.
Vernon Wells .271/.327/.443/.769 33 doubles, 19 Hr, 5.07 RC/27, 77 Runs, 77 RBI, 144 G
So they see a little bit of a bounce back year. Not as big a comeback as we'd like but about where I'd guess.
Jose Bautista 241/.335/.409/.744 21 doubles, 13 Hr, 4.52 RC/27, 51 Runs, 48 RBI, 121 G
Numbers much like this year's. If he's a Jay I hope he doesn't play that much. Again it would likely depend if Cito is the manager, Cito liked him a lot. I'd like to think we could do better in RF.
Travis Snider 275/.357/.493/.850 33 doubles, 19 Hr, 6.21 RC/27, 82 Runs, 90 RBI, 141 G
I'd be really happy if Travis has this sort of season next year, a few more homers wouldn't be bad but would be a good season for him. He will only be 22 next year
Just to look at a couple of former Jays:
Scott Rolen .278/.357/.442/.799 35 doubles, 14 Hr, 5.48 RC/27, 72 Runs, 75 RBI, 127 G
If that's the over/under on games played for Rolen I'll take under. They have a good year predicted for him at age 35.
Alex Rios .278/.332/.445/.777 36 doubles, 16 Hr, 5.21 RC/27, 79 Runs, 73 RBI, 149 G
I'd take the under on everything there but could easily happen. That would be a good season if he plays CF.
