what makes you say that?
he has been a monster of a hitter for years, and its not his mechanics its his mentality.
the all-star break will be good he will get a break and hopefully comeback and starting ripping the cover off the ball.

Jones would have to his .300 the second half to even smell .250 much less higher, and let's not forget he is a ~.260 hitter. I think his best case scenario is to hit .270 for the second half, which would still leave his average around .235. I think he can put up his career average numbers for the second half 15-20 hr.

If he can get me one hit at bat and not 0fer with the random HR thrown in, I'm happy.

he actually stole 2, the last one was chipper, not andruw. Anyways, 2 sb is still great and anything andruw does is better than what he was doing before. I guess he has felt that he was inconsiderate to his fantasy owners who drafted him early hoping for a career year on his contract year. Me

Why do you care about his overall numbers? If he hits .270 through the 2nd half, thats a heck of a lot better than .200

He is not this bad of a hitter, he will find his swing.

I could care less what his average is. I traded for him for his power and RBI #'s. You get what you pay for. I hope he makes it to 35 homers and over 100 RBI'. Anything over that is a bonus.

Here's a question on the topic....

Given Jones recent flare, do you start him the first week after the ASB?

I have Vlad, Bay, and Pence in OF. I have been using Tulowitski at utility. I have Tex, but I think I am going to sit him still for the first half week to see how that goes.

Play Jones? Or Tulowitski?

I'd play Andruw over Tulowitski but thats me. Andruw has proven over time that his 2nd half this season can't be as bad his first half.
