Conor Jackson....Batting leadoff??

Postby Real Deal » Sat Apr 03, 2010 7:24 pm

It appears as though Conor Jackson will be the leadoff hitter in arizona. this is an odd placement for a guy with his tools, but i am curious as to what it will do for his numbers. as i try to project his "best case scenario" i wrestle with the idea of his upside (or perceived lack thereof). Rotoworld rankings have him as their #143 overall player, and having a .300 16homer, 12 sb, 80 rbi, 80 run season. do you guys see this as a realistic scenario? and will he be good enough to stay in the top 150?

I'd say .300 90/70 15/5.

I like him this year.

I really like Jackson this year and got him very deep in my draft as a 5th OF. Would not be surprised to see a 17 HR, 85 RBI, 80 Run, .290 Ave, 10 SB season..He's a solid hitter who can slap 40+ double healthy

I don't see 85 or even 70 RBI if he is indeed batting leadoff. Bump up his runs a little, and the extra AB's will make his batting average count a little more for you. That being said, he's a solid late round guy, especially if you have Adam Dunn or Chris Davis on your team.

Hear me now; believe me later.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

After seeing 5-6 dbacks games in the spring, Cojack looks real good. I remember in 08 when he got off to a blazing start. I could potentially see 85-90 runs with 20 hrs and a 300 average.

Interesting selection for lead off, I didn't realize he had 6 triples and 10 steals in 2008.
He could be an unlikely source of steals if they let him run.
