still developing Adam Jones hits . 290, 30 HRs, 100 RBIs.
Os still finish under .500.
Okay, we're at the mid-point of the seaon. lets see how my predictions are holding up:
Markakis free from injury:
Matusz sub-4.00 ERA:
Weiters hits .275, 25 HRs, 80 RBIs: currently projects to .247, 22 HRs, 80 RBIs, not bad.
Jones hits .290, 30 HRs, 100 RBIS: currently projects to .297, 40, and 88, not bad.
Hopefully, I'm wrong about the sub .500 record as well.
