what's the deal with Geoff Jenkins?

Postby guest » Fri Mar 26, 2004 8:28 am

I feel like believing this man could hit 40 home-runs if he stayed healthy. Any Milwaukee fans out there with knowledge.... For example, will he be batting cleanup? There will be worse offenses this year....
Am I reaching here?

The Brew Crew is having a very nice spring....any chance they're better than expected...and with that a nice boost for Jenkins?

I agree health is the #1 concern as everyone knows. There were some rumors that they were going to try and move him from left to right field. I guess after some number crunching they came to the conclusion that there were alot more balls hit to left than right field. With the limited number of chances he would have on defense, they are hoping he may avoid the injury bug. MOST of his injuries came while playing defense. All of his injuries have come on hussle plays. He goes 100% at all times.

I think 40 HR may be a little bit of a reach. He will no longer have Sexson in the lineup. He will bat 4th between Overbay and either Grieve or Helms. I think 40 is optimistic but I will be cheering for him to get there.

Saying Jeff Jenkins will hit 40 HRs if healthy is like saying J.D. Drew will hit 40 HRs if healthy. He is an injury mess, and it is foolish to project any level of performance by him based on more than 125 games played.

Not quite the same, at least Geoff hit like 26 last year before he got hurt. I don't know if Drew even hit double digits. I agree though, if I'm looking for a power hitter late in the draft, I'd go for guys like Kearns and Burnitz over Jenkins.

Burnitz because I could use him just for Coors starts.
