2011 ZIPs Projections

28

Dan Szymborski over at Baseball Think Factory is releasing his 2011 projections, team by team, and he just put the Indians out there. Do not view immediately after eating. It is not pretty. The pitching looks particularly bad, as ZIPs views it kind of like a manure pit - depth isn't necessarily attractive when it stinks. Only C Perez and Masterson are projected as above average. ZIPs does not project playing time (I'm looking at you, Jordan Brown; I'm not looking at you, Andy Marte); offensive projections are sorted by RC/27.
