I really like these numbers. I think Francis has the confidence to do well, and I think the rockies will look like that up and down the lineup. I think 2B might change however. 57 wins plus 30-35 bullpen wins. I say thats about right. Probably not another playoff run.

nice work eli

I think Atkins will hit much higher than .296. He's got the ability to challenge for a batting title. Also I expect a lot more production out of Hawpe. He's only going to get better.

Yeah, I don't understand the reasoning in Hawpe driving in 30 less runs than last season, especially when he's still in his prime... Also, Atkins will hit MUCH higher than .296. People don't understand the type of hitter he is; even the outs he makes are solid. I will also say this, if Matt Holliday's average goes back down below .320, he's hitting more than 32 homers.

Aside from those run production numbers, I think these are pretty decent projections.
