What are your thoughts on Geoff Jenkins? He is hitting the ball well:
Good: Avg: 268
Bad: BUT he k's a ton = 71!!! That is alarming.
And he is not a team that has many bats around him, only Sexson.
Good: He has been batting in front of Sexson, which is good because he should see better pitches.
I will not rest until I have you holding a coke, wearing your own shoe, playing a Sega game featuring you, while singing your own song in a new commercial starring you, broadcast during a super bowl game you are winning. Show me the $$$!!!
I'm less enthusiastic about him. If you really need HR's, then I'd pick him up if you're weak in the OF. But if your avg. is also low, he will just drag it down further. Plus, he's about the streakiest hitter in the game, and goes on prolonged hot/cold spells, as well as very short ones. His inconsistency is what hurts you the most, b/c when he's slumping, you might bench him, then he goes off for a game.....then nothing again.
Jenkins is currently hitting .286, not .268. Whether he can keep that up is another question, but he has hit over .300 in the past so it's possible. I picked him up in a 12-team league a while back and I've been extremely happy with him. He is streaky, but what I've done is bench him if he has an 0 for 4 or 0 for 5 for a game or two and wait until he heats back up to put him back in. You miss the occasional big game when he first turns it around that way, but you also avoid the bulk of his slumps. You don't miss much though, as he usually stays hot for a few games at least, so once you see him have a good game, get him back in there and enjoy the ride.
Lately, he's stayed hot and I've kept him in all the time and he's been huge for me. I'd definitely pick him up if he's available, especially if you have another OF option on your bench you can sub in for him if he hits another of his mini-slumps.
