Connor Jackson Called Up.

Postby Copperheads » Thu Jul 28, 2005 11:42 am

I see that Connor Jackson was called up and will split time with Tony Clark and Tracey moving to right field. Does he have any value for this year? Anyone think he might be able to do what Chris Shelton has done so far for the Tigers?

wow AT, that is EXACTLY what I've thought about him. Let's hope he doesn't turn out like Casey, though. I believe everyone said things like "those doubles will turn into homers" and "the power will come" about the Mayor as well. I think he is going to hit .330 with 20 HRs NEXT YEAR!

I will respectfully disagree and point to his 39 doubles and the fact that he is only 23 years old. Only time will tell. If he was more of a contact hitter, you wouldn't see as many doubles. And from what I've heard those doubles are often hit quite hard. Add a little "man strength" and those will be HRs.

Look at his friggin' SLG... that's way too much to not ever develop HR power... I think he's capable of 25-30 with a sick OBP/OPS. Maybe like Nick Johnson with more pop.

Not to mention he should get to spend the next five years in a ballpark that leans towards batters ... ;-D ;-D
