Well thats true. but Quentin has nice numbers and wasn't he a highly touted prospect of the organization?
Even if he is a 20 year old they have Conor Jackson cloggin his path too
It's my understanding that the organization has soured on Jackson and that they don't view him as the solution at 1B anymore. I think they don't believe he will develop the power necessary to play the position. I doubt if he ever gets more than 2/3 of the ABs for 1B. He got 415 ABs last year and I expect it to be about the same next year. It's going to be some combination of Reynolds, Tracy, and Jackson, thereby devaluing everyone. Perhaps even Jackson will be on the outside looking in.
Too bad. I own Jackson in a league. It was a pain trying to figure out when he would play.
