The Baseball Factory on the 2007 Phillies

The Phanatic likes to read the work at The Baseball Factory, given they do impeccable historic research and study trends before slapping numbers on to players.

Some of the Phillies' projected totals were interesting:

Ryan Howard's mean average for 2007: .298/.397/.627 with 51 homers and 142 RBI. His optimistic season? .322/.430/.694 with 59 bombs and 175, yes 175, RBI.

I'd also take Pat Burrell's projected numbers: .262/.373/.487 with 28 home runs and 105 RBI.

The Factory seems leery of Freddy Garcia's jump to the National League, putting his numbers in line with Jamie Moyer's (13 wins, plus 4 ERA). Starts for Adam Eaton? 25 says the Hardball Think Tank, which the Phillies would gladly take.

Check out the rest for yourself at the above link.
