Jason Kubel...useful contributor?

Postby Iguana » Wed Jun 07, 2006 2:36 pm

This guy has some decent numbers in the past month. What do people predict for both his playing time and his numbers over the next few months? Is he going to stay a regular? Will he outperform common waiver wire guys like Carl Everett, Emil Brown or Jeremy Burnitz? He was batting leadoff for a while, but hit 9th the other night.

Looking for some numbers predictions and discussion of this guys upside and downside....any inside info about playing time etc. would be useful too.

I know its only June 7th but Kubel is 6-16 . Don't forget he didn't play last year. He can hit . It may take some time and maybe one more trip to the minors if he hits another slump but he'll be a good one to have once he is back all the way.He hit in the #2 slot last night.

I hope he'll get a full time gig now and with Gardy leaving him in to face a lefty late in the game last night shows a lot.

He won't give you to much this year as even with a 373 hitter in our lineup, we can't hit! If he gets regualr time I could see around a 275 average with 10 homers and a few steals. Eventually he looks like a 300/20 hitter, not this year yet though.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when Stew comes back? I'm hoping they cut Rondel and DH Stew with Cuddy in RF and Kubel in LF.
