Over-Under on 2008 CF Putouts?

Picked up this tidbit of information about Andruw Jones from the Augusta Chronicle (no link, I don't want to go through the registration process):

Jones' agent, Scott Boras, reached his agreement with Los Angeles late Wednesday night. The Dodgers had 379 putouts in center field this year, the fewest in the NL, and their 129 homers ranked 15th among the 16 NL teams. Not exactly what new manager Joe Torre is looking for in his first season with the Dodgers.

I have to think we'll have more than 379 putouts in center field next year--and who knows, maybe an assist or two!
