In response to jackbu's comment:
I hope they don't say he will be out for 4-6 days. That line is a curse.
HAHA!!!! As much as it drives me nut that people are jumping off the roof because he's sitting out a game in ST....... with Ells I just NEVER feel comfortable that the guy will be able to stay on the field. So much speed and potential has amounted to one great season and a few solid ones early on. With that said..I'm thinking he will have a bounchback year. Not a 2011 year but maybe a .310, 23HR, 80Rbi 100 runs and a 380OBP with 35 SB. Obviously he needs to play for that to happen though.......
For what they're worth, here are the 2013 projections for Jacoby Ellsbury from Steamer, Bill James Handbook, Oliver and ZIPS:
S: 595 PA, 83 R, 14 HR, 59 RBI, 22 SB, .285 BA, .341 OBP
BJ: 668 PA, 100 R, 15 HR, 67 RBI, 37 SB, .294 BA, .346 OBP
O: 460 PA, 59 R, 11 HR, 51 RBI, 18 SB, .276 BA, .335 OBP
Z: 451 PA, 57 R, 12 HR, 48 RBI, 23 SB, .284 BA, .335 OBP
