St. Louis Cardinals 2014 VEB Community Projection Results: Mark Ellis

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Mark Ellis is an interesting case for VEB, because most of don't know that much about him. I've never watched more than 30-40 PAs of his over a season, and I have no idea how good or bad or young or old he looks at the plate. And VEB is still a bit more optimistic than the projections systems, although not overly so.

f'n zoomzoom! But seriously, if he's hitting that poorly, I really, really hope he's not getting 205 PA. And if he's hitting .269/.321/.451, I would imagine he'll play more than 390 PA. That's probably the toughest part about projecting Ellis/Wong and Bourjos/Jay, is guessing how to allocate playing time.
