2010 projected leaders: First baseman OPS

Feb 19, 2010, 6:58 PM EDT

Over the next several days, I’ll be dipping into my 2010 projections and presenting some leaderboards.
1. Albert Pujols – 1067
2. Prince Fielder – 976
3. Miguel Cabrera – 965
4. Mark Teixeira – 962
5. Adrian Gonzalez – 933
6. Ryan Howard – 923
7. Lance Berkman – 911
8. Kevin Youkilis – 898
9. Kendry Morales – 889
10. Justin Morneau – 884
11. Adam Dunn – 882
12. Joey Votto – 882
13. Todd Helton – 874
14. Billy Butler – 872
15. Derrek Lee – 871
– I don’t suppose there are any surprising names here. Everyone in the group besides Butler came in at 870 or better last year, and Butler finished at 853. The other two players I have projected for modest gains are Cabrera (942 to 965) and Teixeira (948 to 962). On the other side of the equation, I have Votto and Lee projected for 100-point declines, but that still doesn’t knock either off the list.
– First base is such a strong position right now. The first four players here received my four highest OPS projections for the year, followed by Joe Mauer at 958.
– I’m not going to run down the entire list of DHs, but Vladimir Guerrero topped that one at 879, followed by David Ortiz at 862 and Jim Thome at 851.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
