The deadline deals...with projections

Casey Kotchman for Mark Teixiera:

Tex: 279/371/495 - He's not in the National League anymore, or an AL launching pad. Numbers take a hit, but he's still pretty good.
Kotchman: 289/355/459

Ken Griffey to the White Sox for a half eaten donut:
Griffey: 249/349/448 He's taking a lot of walks this year, that may not be a good thing, could mean his bat speed is gone. I'm not sure what he's doing there. Does he DH, with Thome going to first and Konerko to the bench? Konerko, despite a terrible year, projects better at 264/358/472. Maybe they will platoon, which isn't much of a gain if any at all. Anyway you look at it, Konerko is going to get less playing time. If Griffey plays center with Swisher at first, then the Twins are going to win the central. How bad is Griffey's defense? Go to The Book blog, and drink every time "Griffey" and "replacement level" are used in the same sentence.

ManRam to the Dodgers, JayRay Bay to Boston, prospects to the Pirates:

Ramirez: 285/406/545. In the AL, he'd be at 283/394/515. Bay is a fine hitter but not quite there with Ramirez, Bay: 266/365/476.

LaRoche hasn't done much other than take a ton of walks recently. In the past he's shown power potential. Dodgers for some reason refuse to give him an extended shot. Hopefully he'll get that chance now, throwing across the diamond to his brother.

LaRoche: 267/369/441. If he can do that while playing acceptable D at third, Pirate fans won't miss Bay.

Griffey to the Sox. That one is easy. I think this is nothing but a gift for Griffey. Where does he play? Does it matter? Think about the personalities. We're talking about Ozzie and Ken here. Ken wanted Griffey from way back. And Ozzie is a former player who probably just wants to have "The Kid" around. Not to mention, as the "team captain" has struggled he probably is less likely to complain about sitting for Griffey if Ozzie wants to play the hotter hand. It doesn't do much statistically for the Sox, but the way they run that club when have statistics mattered to leadership? I don't know if they have sabermatricians on the payroll as is the case with many teams these days, but I would imagine they'd be one of the last to employ such tactics. This is a team powered on emotions and the salsafied whims of lil Ozzie.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
