What's this guy's story? His career numbers make me want to vomit, but suddenly he's over .280, 11/12 on steal attempts, drove in 10 runs in June while smacking 3 HR. He's nearly 32 years old, to boot.

What's with this guy? Just a sudden good source of steals/position flexibility? A real fantasy option in 2005; beyond?

And no, I'm not wondering if I should pick him up, so please don't Hampster me B-)

I'm just wondering what I should tell people asking me about him; because I have no clue! :-D

tell people that he will be losing his playing time and will go back to being an infield UT in about a week, when Mark Loretta returns.

Damian has done an excellent job filling in for the short term, and we thank you for that Damian. ;-D

;-D but wow he has had some timely hits and has played excellent thirdbase...unfortunately, with EY's return and Loretta's return soon to go along with Nevin's, it's going to be a hard-fought battle for time off the bench. I don't see how Jackson has the advantage over all of Fick, Sweeney, Nady, etc.

He should still get you some steals if you are desperate for them, however. He'll always be asked to pinch-run.

I picked him up two days ago and already noticed that he's getting no playing time. Eric Young played 2B the past two days.
