2007 Athletic's PECOTA Predictions

Well, the PECOTA Cards are out, so we can see how our very own Oakland Athletics may very well fare this year.

Lets take a look at the lineup.

POS / Name / EQA / VORP
C1: Kendall [.251/4.5]
LF: Swisher [.292/18.5]
RF: Bradley [.283/12.6]
3B: Chavez [.291/24.0]
DH: Piazza [.267/8.0]
CF: Kotsay [.273/16.3]
SS: Crosby [.262/12.5]
1B: Johnson [.289/12.4]
2B: Ellis [.277/20.9]

Bold = Good
Italic = Bad
Regular = Average

Honestly, thats both worse and better then I expected. Crosby and Kendall project to be bad (hopefully Kendall will NOT lead off and get so many abs again this year). But we have no really good hitters, and several mediocer ones.

Lets check the Pitching Staff.

POS / Name / ERA / VORP
SP Harden 4.12/19.2
SP Haren 4.26/27.8
SP Loaiza 5.08/7.6
SP Blanton 4.73/16.7
SP Kennedy 4.84/5.6
SP Windsor 4.67/13.2
RP Street 3.01/21.0
RP Duchscherer 3.53/15.4
RP Calero 3.44/13.6
RP Embree 4.26/5.6
RP Gaudin 4.60/8.5
RP Halsey 5.08/4.8
RP Witasick 4.29/6.7

Doesn't look very good on the pitching side either.

I really hope that we preform our best in 2007, because otherwise it isn't looking good.
