(No, she doesn't work for AB4AR. But it'd be nice if she did)
Preseason projections are always fun, and there have been a bounty of them out there for quite some time now. The school of thought I attend in projections is the CAIRO model. If you don't know what that entails (and if you're a regular reader of this blog and know of its love for YouTube videos and bad jokes, chances are you don't), do yourself a favor and brush up here. Long story short, the 2011 CAIRO projections for the Yankee hitters are good. But are they good indicators of what will actually happen?
Time for me to put on the official AB4AR wizard hat and peer into the official AB4AR crystal ball as I examine each member of the starting lineup's 2011 CAIRO projection and give my take AND my projection for each player based off of the CAIRO numbers.
