Adam Jones: buy low or stay away?

Postby kardiak » Wed Apr 14, 2010 7:09 pm

Has struggled out of the gates so far. Most concerning is his 8:1 K to BB ratio.

Going forward do you view him as someone to target or is he strictly a victim of the hype machine?

If you can get him low enough, go ahead and grab him. No way should you write him off after just a couple weeks. He was a huge prospect coming out, so I really doubt that last year was just a fluke.

I fully expect him to be a very good #3 OF in most formats with upside higher than that, I'd buy low if you can.

Buy low after a slow 1st week? That's not buying low, it is overreacting to a small sample size of stats.

Absolutely would trade a guy like Hunter Pence for him...Pence hits in arguably the worst lineup in baseball and is supposed to hit in the 3 hole while berkman rests? good luck with that one houston.
