Not even the most clairvoyant psychics can predict the future with complete accuracy, but when it comes to projecting baseball stats, few do it better than CHONE .

CHONE just recently released its projections for the 2010 season, and it's fair to say that, compared to the big dogs in the American League East, players on the Toronto Blue Jays are significantly lacking when it comes to star players who provide wins above replacement level.

Regardless, I decided to put together a simple pie graph based on those 2010 WAR CHONE projections, which finally made all of those hours goofing off in 10th-grade computer class worth while.

Pitchers were left out because CHONE did not have WAR projections for many of the starting pitchers and relievers, so I just went with the positional players. I also omitted any positional players on the 40-man roster or Spring Training invitees whose WAR was a negative value.
