Get Well Soon Jose And Dos Carlos

Here are the projected wOBAs for last night's lineup for the rest of the season, according to ZiPS projections at Fangraphs:

Player Projected wOBA
Luis Castillo .321
Alex Cora .301
David Wright .414
Gary Sheffield .342
Fernando Tatis .330
Ryan Church .350
Nick Evans .318
Omir Santos .286

A .330 wOBA is about average, meaning this lineup (which is essentially the Varsity lineup for the foreseeable future, interchanging Daniel Murphy for Evans and Brian Schneider for Santos) projects one superstar, 2 slightly above average hitters, 1 average hitter, and 4 below average hitters.  The bench isn't much better, with Murphy's .323 leading the pack.  Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, and Carlos Delgado are pegged at .366, .398, and .362, respectively.  Who knows what we will get out of them coming off of injuries.  Compare to the Yankees "A" Team:

Player Projected wOBA
Derek Jeter .358
Johnny Damon .369
Mark Teixeira .399
Alex Rodriguez .404
Robinson Cano .351
Nick Swisher .366
Jorge Posada .372
Brett Gardner .312
Hideki Matsui .367

That is a terrifying lineup, and the one weak link (Gardner) is so good in the field at a premium position that he should be a ~3 WAR performer.  Good luck tonight Tim Redding

My message to our 3 injured stars: get well, get well soon, we want you to get well.
