2009 Ranger projections index - updated w/pitchers

So, I've got some time on my hands, and a wild hair of curiosity, inspired by the ZiPS Adam posted on the front page... so I thought I'd collect and centralize some of the the basic 2009 Ranger projections for everyone currently on the 40 man roster. Hitters are  formatted in the standard order of AVG/OBP/SLG, and pitchers are ERA/IP/FIP, save for the ZiPS, where I've had to substitute ERA+ for FIP.

Projections where accquired from BBTF and Fangraphs and combined averages where calculated by our own Chase Irwin (hitters) and "Smoakin in the boys room" (pitchers). Thanks for the help, guys.
