Hola Loco!

The ExpoNats have announced a press conference for 4pm today.
The Angels have announced a press conference for 4pm today.
Looks like Jose Guillen will be patrolling the RFK outfield in 2005.

If this goes through they will have Wilkerson in left, and Guillen/Rivera in CF/RF, actual spots to be determined...

Guillen will be 29 next year, and using my trusty weighted (1x2002+ 2x2003+ 3x2004)/6 formula (and doubling his 2002 numbers since he only played about half the year), perhaps we could expect to see something along these lines in 'o5:


AB H R HR RBI K BB OBP SLG OPS
Guillen02 480 114 50 16 62 86 28 .287 .367 .654
Guillen03 485 151 77 31 86 95 24 .359 .569 .928
Guillen04 565 166 88 27 104 92 37 .352 .497 .849
05 PROJ. 524 152 78 27 91 92 31 .344 .499 .843


Decent power and production numbers, but the walks totals and OBP are pretty poor, leading to an OPS that ranked 53rd in the bigs last year. Good but not great.

Before I get too deep into these numbers and his impact on the locker room, let's see what the 4pm announcement says...
