Span= one of the most disciplined leadoff hitters in the league
Jackson= rookie who has plate discipline problems

Bad mix. :-D

Austin Jackson is closer to Carlos Gomez than Denard. Hopefully for Detroit he's not that close to gomez because that was brutal to watch.

So far I am pleasantly surprised by A Jax. He is showing pretty good plate discipline when I have watched, and doesn't appear over matched by major league pitching. I don't expect much production from him as the ball yard isn't conductive too easy HRs and the Tigers don't emphasize SBs, but if he keeps his average up he should score enough runs to be a useable spot starter with decent upside.

I've dumped A.Jackson. It was a nice little run, but the strikeouts are too much to bear. There were better options on the waiver wire in my league. A.Jackson will definitely be someone to watch for next fantasy season though.

He's young. Give him a break. Pitchers are starting to adjust so we'll find out what he's made of now.

It was more directed towards moochman than Ajax.

So far, so good except for the strikeouts. He's currently on pace for 138 runs and 29 SB. He won't keep this up, but he should be a serviceable OF for sure with a great shot at winning ROY.

Looks like he's been doing pretty good without the strikeouts though.. He hasn't strucken out in 4 games now and he's been doing amazing. So if as long as he tries to keep that category low, He should be good.
