He needs a utility guy... I think in a 20 team 6X6 dynasty league, you can find a place for a guy with Conor Jackson's stats. considering his SS is Antonio Perez, he could do far worse. I'll take the guy that can help me win now.
I was gonna agree w/ Steamers, but you have a good point there, especially since the extra O stat is OBP, right up Conor's alley.
Still, I would be inclined to go w/ Quentin instead of Conor, if I wanted someone to help me very soon. Since the DBacks dealt Glaus away and will move Tracy back to 3B, won't that mean Quentin will likely get the call for RF? I'm not so sure Conor's a better bet to help from 1B than Quentin from RF in 2006. It's not as if Conor did anything during his 2005 MLB stint to show that he really will help anyway. And in the long haul, I'd rather have Quentin than Conor although Conor will likely help the OBP more. I'd rather save that Util slot for somebody like Justin Huber in a later round or sign some veteran bat like maybe Ibanez cheaply for the short term. Given how Conor did in his 05 MLB stint, I'm not that convinced he will help you anymore than a well chosen, cheap veteran bat or two (maybe a platoon or playing the hot hand or something).
Just another amateur learning to paint w/ "the light of the world".
