2009 Mariners ZIPS Posted

Link

To sum up Dan Szymborski's projection of our team...We should have seen last year coming and the 2009 team is going to be pretty pathetic for a lot of reasons.

Kenji is projected to be our worst catcher behind Clement, Moore, Johnson, and Burke.  I think Moore's projection is actually much closer to Clement's than I thought.  If you haven't already jumped on the Adam Moore bandwagon, this is probably a good time to do it.

Russell Branyan is going to be one of our best players....

2B has three options all which look to give very similar production (Lopez, Tug, and Valbuena).

Beltre is expected to repeat last year without improvement/decline.

Yuni is the team's 3rd best option.  The best, Mike Morse...god help us all.  (Tug is probably a better option though).

Our OF is gonna suck unless we bring in some people.  Ichiro is good athough ZIPS has a tough time predicting a good year for him.  The rest are either not good or too young to help. 

Starting pitching should be good and the bullpen might be mediocre (especially if Putz is traded).

If this depresses you too much look at the Marlins projections.  They suck too although they have young exciting players.  All and all, these projections are pretty depressing to me.  The worst part is I think they might be pretty accurate.
