Jacques Jones -- will he ever be an everyday starter?

Postby Jericho » Sat Jul 08, 2006 12:08 pm

The guy is putting up great numbers... but with my loaded team, it seems half the time I start him, the Cubs bench him that day.

Is he platooning with others for playing time? Aren't his numbers great enough to warrant everyday play? I'm afraid to start him lest I later realize he's watching from the dugout.

Thanks for any insight.

He's very streaky and horrible against LHP.

Exactly. The smart play is to sit him against left handed starters. Every year his manager gives him a shot to hit LHP, and he has yet to post decent numbers. This year~~

vs. LHP 78 AB 9 R 3 HR 11 RBI .205
vs. RHP 201 AB 25 R 12 HR 34 RBI .383
