2013 Community Projections Results: A.J. Pierzynski

Punchable - Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Reviewing the best and worst of the pre-season community projections.

At approximately 400 years old, A.J. Pierzynski had about as good of an offensive year as you could expect. As long as you were expecting him to never, ever, ever walk. Defensively he looked pretty sub-par, especially when it came to getting in front of baseballs. And his veteranocity earned him a spot in the lineup pretty much every day, even as a DH against LHP.

The LSB community did a pretty good job of projecting him, with even the worst projections as pretty close.

Congratulations to mlsof21 for having the lowest score* with his projection. Here is a spreadsheet with how everyone did.

*Score is the average number of standard deviations away from the actual 2013 value
