he's supposedly going to be relegated once shoppach returns, but he should be a solid BA/OBP contributor until then
and given the team he's on, that should translate into R and RBI opportunities at the bare minimum

15 BBs and 6 Ks in 80 PAs... unreal. :-°

I noticed this too, and for a guy who is probably regarded as the weak link in a dangerous lineup, that makes the subsequent walk totals all that more impressive IMO because you figure pitchers are probably trying to attack him.

of course, as soon as i say that he'll be good BA support, he starts off a week 0/4 with a GIDP. :-[

AJ Pierzynski, part 2. Decent AVG, decent power, won't really hurt you.

.322 slg and .222 avg just wont cut it.

I think he was comparing him to Pierzynski as a whole and not this year.

I mean, if he were to have compared Jaso to Johnny Bench, we wouldn't argue that Bench is batting .000/.000/.000 this year, right? :-D

According to the St Petersburg Times, "Manager Joe Maddon didn't want to make any commitments to the changes he made to the batting order, saying only it was the best combination for Monday. But the move of hot-hitting C John Jaso into the fifth spot against right-handers is likely to be more than a one-night stand, as is the demotion of cold-swinging Carlos Peña, who is likely to now hit sixth and seventh. Maddon said it just made sense, as Jaso and No. 3 hitter Ben Zobrist have consistently had the best at-bats, and he wanted them on either side of cleanup hitter Evan Longoria. "(Jaso) right now affords the best protection for Longo, and I think Zo's got the best chance to get on for Longo," Maddon said. "So I think it's a nice little Longo sandwich we've got going on right now." And Peña, who homered in the fourth inning but remains in a miserable slump (10-for-75), said it made sense to him, too. "No negative feelings about it all," Peña said. "I know there is strategy involved. I like to keep the right perspective on things. And right now it's really not about me; it really isn't." The lineup will look different tonight against Boston LHP Jon Lester, with Willy Aybar at DH (and possibly hitting fifth) and Dioner Navarro behind the plate."

I added Jaso off the FA list when Posada hit the DL and have been pleased this past week. I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable with him the entire year, but I'd definitely look his way if my C hit the DL or was in a prolonged slump. The K:BB ratio is great and his minor league record is testimony to the fact that he's got a great eye - I like this at the C position where I'm not looking for a 5 cat contributor but just someone to fill in the line each week. I think Jaso can do that.

The way JJ is going, is he really going to be taking a backseat as soon as Shoppach is back? I am also assuming Navarro is well out of the picture?

I'm looking at JJ right now, but do have Y.Molina from the draft. I'm not ready to part ways with him yet but I'm not totally contended with what he's providing so far this season. Is Y.Molina a guy you shouldn't cut regardless?
