Feb 16, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

Over the next several days, I’ll be dipping into my 2010 projections and presenting some leaderboards.
Slugging percentage
1. Albert Pujols – .624
2. Ryan Braun – .575
3. Miguel Cabrera – .574
4. Prince Fielder – .570
5. Mark Teixeira – .570
6. Ryan Howard – .561
7. Hanley Ramirez – .549
8. Alex Rodriguez – .548
9. Evan Longoria – .544
10. Adrian Gonzalez – .542
11. Manny Ramirez – .542
12. Joe Mauer – .538
13. Pablo Sandoval – .532
14. Justin Upton – .531
15. Kendry Morales – .529
16. David Wright – .528
17. Adam Lind – .528
18. Jason Bay – .524
19. Matt Holliday – .520
20. Josh Hamilton – .517
21. Aramis Ramirez – .514
22. Justin Morneau – .514
23. Mark Reynolds – .512
24. Carlos Quentin – .512
25. Matt Kemp – .512
- While the Yankees and Red Sox occupied three spots apiece in the top 25 for OBP on Monday, Boston is left out here. The Yankees have two of the top 10, plus Robinson Cano just missing the list at .510. Boston’s highest, though, is David Ortiz at .504, followed by Kevin Youkilis at .498.
- There were three players with isolated slugging percentages (SLG – AVG) of .250 or better not to make the top 25: Adam Dunn (.245 AVG, .504 SLG), Carlos Pena (.243, .500) and Russell Branyan (.234, .493).
- Pujols tops both the OBP and slugging lists, which obviously gives him the top OPS on the board at 1067. Next are Fielder at 976, Cabrera at 965, Teixeira at 962 and Mauer at 958.

    Instead of WAR, OPS, wOBA, and what have you, why don’t we just express players in their relation to Albert? Projected leaderboard:
    1. Albert Pujols – 1.2 AP
    2. Joe Mauer – 0.82 AP
    3. Hanley Ramirez – 0.77 AP
    457. Yuniesky Betancourt – (0.4) AP

    Not a single Red Sock on the list…not good, not good at all…

    Werth will be at .520 this season. His last season before FA, Yup.

    Jason Bay? In the other NY stadium??? C’mon, you have do more than look at his history. The ball parks do matter a bit I’d say…. In citibank park I call Bay at below .480 . I’m no expert but that’s my take on it. Seriously though that park is far from hitter friendly, Unless you’re a Lefty who can rip the ball over the fence down the right field line, thus having that corner named after yourself…. Ok, that was a dig.

    Jason Kubel tore the cover off the ball last year in his first year of regularly DHing (.539) and has shown improvement in every season since his injury. I’d expect to see him in the top 25 this year. He actually did better than Morneau last year and I’d expect to see him over .500 agian this year.

  6. Church of the Perpetually Outraged - Feb 17, 2010 at 11:04 AM

    It’ll depend on how well the new stadium plays. While Kubel has been getting better, his H/A splits are getting worse. The last two years has seen his splits increase to almost a 100 pt advantage at Home than on the Road.
