*St. Louis Cardinals 2014 VEB Community Projection Results: Matt Adams

Ronald Martinez

There is actually very little variance in the rate stats predicted for Matt Adams. VEB projected an average of .275, while the others projected between .265 and .270. VEB projected an OBP of .329, while the others projected between .308 and .320. VEB projected a SLG of .498, while the others projected between .464 and .482. For the first time, Steamer wasn't the most optimistic projection system, with Oliver projecting a .001 higher OPS. Counting stats aside, I think we would all take any of the projected slash lines, though.

Only about 20% of respondents projected Matt Adams for an OPS below .800, which would put him in the neighborhood of the 15th best offensive 1B in the Majors. And that's the very low end of his projection! It's easy to see the logic in letting Carlos Beltran go.

As a new feature, here are VEB's individual projections divided up by quartile to see how optimistic/pessimistic you were. These are ranked by projected OPS.

CELEBRITY DOPPELGANGER: By a pretty fair margin, John Goodman. Probably because they are both large. You all are lazy.
