Everyday on BSR we’re going to take a look at a different Oriole’s numbers from last season and set goals for them this year. Today we take a look at the Orioles’ first baseman Aubrey Huff, who had an amazing 2008 season.

2009 projections

 G   AB    R    H   2B 3B  HR  RBI  SB CS  BB  SO   BA
156  604   99  186  51  2  35  115   4  0  59  72  .307

Realistically, Aubrey Huff was the most improved Oriole of the 2008 season. I feel guilty trying to ask for more, so his projections aren’t a real improvement over last season. A .300+ batting average, 51 doubles, and 35 homeruns is enough to book a trip to the All Star Game.

In 2009 Huff should focus on driving a few more guys in, hitting a few more long balls, and striking out a little less. I guess for Huff to have a good season he should stay focused at the plate and work on his defense at first base.
