2012 Cubs Bill James Projections, Part 2

It’s Bill James week here at Obstructed View. We published the hitter’s projections a few days ago, our interview with Bill James and now the pitcher projections. I calculated the FIP.

Pitcher W L G GS IP H HR BB SO ERA FIP
Sean Marshall 5 4 78 0 75 71 6 21 65 3.24 3.43
Andrew Cashner 9 6 26 20 137 120 8 54 121 3.35 3.48
Carlos Marmol 5 4 74 0 76 52 5 52 97 3.43 3.87
Matt Garza 12 12 31 31 214 204 22 69 185 3.70 3.89
Kerry Wood 3 3 56 0 52 45 5 26 57 3.81 3.99
Ryan Dempster 11 12 32 32 203 195 21 80 185 3.95 4.01
Carlos Zambrano 10 10 30 30 181 167 16 78 149 3.83 4.13
Randy Wells 8 11 27 27 174 183 20 59 126 4.24 4.35
Casey Coleman 5 7 21 20 105 110 10 43 66 4.29 4.50
Jeff Samardzija 4 6 75 0 87 83 10 51 71 4.66 4.92
James Russell 2 4 60 2 54 63 11 13 39 5.17 5.24

The only thing that really jumps out here is Andrew Cashner. No idea how he’s projected to be the best starting pitcher on the staff by a wide margin. I included Kerry Wood because I figure there’s a decent chance he’ll be back.
