Look at his splits,
preall star break:
931 AB 141 R 42 HR 145 RBI .258 AVG

post allstar break: (416 ab, going to double everything to make it basically even to the amount of pre allstar break at bats)
932 AB 126 R 46 HR 144 RBI .303 AVG

It seems his average is what is the greatest increase in the second half, so in a 5 x 5 leauge he has good value for the second half.
I can still see him having a 20 hr 50 rbi second half


I agree. Jenkins has been a notorious second half player. Additionally, he's hot right now. When he sees the ball well (i.e. when he doesn't swing at sh!t that could hit his shoetops), he usually succeeds. That's what's happening right now, his ABs just look better.

I don't mean to criticize or anything but how is this post different from "How will Jenkins' do the rest of the way"? I've never got any one of my post eating by the Hammy so I have no hatred for him, but how does this one squeak through?

I think he gave his disease to Carlos Lee. That guy would miss a fastball thrown at his nuts!

Why is it over for him? Do you have any evidence for that? After another dinger last night, his July OPS is 1.194. He's hitting .426 since June 24th, better than anybody in the game in that timespan (http://tinyurl.com/9pbno). He's brought his season OPS to a respectable .815 and his average up to a respectable .271. The Cardinals announcers were calling him the hottest hitter in baseball last night. If anything, this is the time to ride Jenkins before he goes into another of his cold spells.

I think you might be right on. I know he took it hard when Yost started benching him vs. lefties about a month ago. It seems it has motivated him. I think he has a pretty good rest of the year.

Jenkins in July - .431 BA 4 HR 15 RBI 1.238 OPS
Pujols in July - .361/ 6HR/14RBI 1.172 OPS
Derek Lee in July .339/8/13 1.228 OPS

I guess maybe he's not quite as done as people thought...

"How will Jenkins do the rest of the way" posts are fine, but when you get into the "Will Jenkins be more valuable than (insert name here) the rest of the way?" territory or "Do you think Jenkins is worth a roster spot the rest of the way?" and then posting your team, thats when the Hammy gets fed.

Jenkins gets hot for awhile every year (or so it seems). Then goes cold or gets hurt and finishes up with medicore numbers at best. Nothing new from him.

I'm not sure what you define as mediocre, but Jenkins has finished with OPS seasons of .935 (1999), .948 (2000), and .913 (2003). In fact, if you take out his severely shortened 2002 season, 3 of his 5 seasons have been .900+, with only last year being under .800 (.798). I don't know about you, but I call a .900 OPS great, almost elite, not mediocre at best. Now this season he's up to .834, right up there with his much more heralded teammate, Carlos Lee (.842).
