My 2012 Predictions Results–2013 Partial Predictions

David Wright Mets

Below I’ll post the predictions I made last year for the 2012 season and the results.

C: Josh Thole – .285 – 3 HR – 67 RBI   — Actual 2012:  1 HR, .234 BA, 21 RBI — I was WAY off.

1B: Ike Davis – .288 – 34 HR – 118 RBI — Actual 2012: 32 HR, .227 BA, 90 RBI — Eh. Not bad.

WELP!

2B: Daniel Murphy – .324 – 8 HR – 90 RBI — Actual 2012: 6 HR, .291 BA, 65 RBI — I don’t know why I wrote that.

3B: David Wright – .308 – 31 HR – 127 RBI — Actual 2012: 21 HR, .306 BA, 93 RBI — At least the BA was right.

SS: Ruben Tejada – .284 – 4 HR – 67 RBI — Actual 2012: 1 HR, .289 BA, 25 RBI — Again, just the BA was close.

OF: Jason Bay – .260 – 16 HR – 85 RBI <— I don’t know what Kool-Aid I was drinking when I wrote that one. I no longer feel this way. — Actual 2012: LET’S NOT GO THERE.

OF: Lucas Duda – .290 – 27 HR – 100 RBI — Actual 2012: 5 HR, .239 BA, 57 RBISigh.

*OF: Andres Torres – .277 – 12 HR – 67 RBI <— Never mind, as well. — Actual 2012: 3 HR, .230 BA, 35 RBI — I suck at predictions, clearly.

*Kirk Nieuwenhuis – .278 – 10 HR – 57 RBI — Actual 2012: 7 HR, .252 BA, 28 RBI — I’m really embarrassed at this point….

Util: Justin Turner – .280 – 4 HR – 40 RBI — Actual 2012: 2 HR, .269 BA, 19 RBI — I was handing out RBI like it was nobody’s business.

Util: Ronnie Cedeño – .243 – 1 HR – 28 RBI — Actual 2012:  4 HR, .259 BA, 22 RBI — Heyyyy, I wasn’t too far off here! Kudos, Susi.

Bench: Scott Hairston – .260 – 10 HR – 40 RBI — Actual 2012: 20 HR, .263 BA, 57 RBI — Alright, alright, redemption!

Bench: Mike Nickeas – .240 – 1 HR – 10 RBI — Actual 2012: 1 HR, .174 BA, 13 RBI — I’m good at predicting bench guys. What is life?

Bench: Mike Baxter – .275 – 3 HR – 15 RBI — Actual 2012: 3 HR, .263 BA, 17 RBI —  I rock.

Rotation

Johan Santana – Misses 2 starts – 3.44 ERA — Actual 2012: 4.85 ERA — “Misses 2 starts” AHAHAHAHAHA.

R.A Dickey – 3.15 ERA — Actual 2012: 2.73 ERA — Gladly wrong.

Jon Niese – 3.33 ERA — Actual 2012: 3.40 ERA — Booyah!

Mike Pelfrey – 4.23 ERA (Later replaced by Chris Young or Matt Harvey – They are also injury backups) — Actual 2012: Gone after a few starts. Bye.

Dillon Gee – 3.35 ERA — Actual 2012: 4.10 ERA — Thank God this is over.

As for the bullpen, I believe Josh Edgin will be up at some point if and when one of the relievers get injured or if one of them stinks up the joint real bad.

I’m sure people wil think these predictions are too positive, or that I’m ridiculous for believing these guys can pull these numbers off, but I’d like to believe they can. Besides, who would do their predictions for their own team and label them all busts when they have potential? Mike Nickeas is probably not going to hit anything better than .240-ish, it’s just not his potential, but Duda and Ike may very well near 30+ homers and Tejada can hit for a high average – therefore I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt with my predictions.

 

Luckily for you, I’m not done making a donkey out of my prediction skills. Without further ado!

    No way Tejada gets 73 RBIs. He’s a leadoff or 7/8 hole hitter. And Murphy should hit like 8 hr

    Way to bullish on Wright. .300 with 20 HRs and 90 RBIs is more likely.

    The only way all your high RBI predictions come through is if the offense is more potent in general then people think it will be.

    If Tejada/Murphy/Cowgill/Valdespin or whoever is at the top of the order get on base at a 35% clip then yeah, maybe a healthy Wright and Ike sniff 100 RBIs. But those counting states are heavily dependent on other players.
