He's not as good as last year I will give you that much for sure. Last year he got hurt in the middle of a hot streak, he's a very streaky hitter and he's a summer hitter. I'd expect him to go on a tear some time soon but I do not expect him to match last years numbers. He's also been thrust into the position of being 'the man', he is expected to carry the offense, I just don't think he's comfortable with it yet.


As for as scouting report, they are nailing him with high fastballs and he's chasing them a lot this year, its causing most of his problems. I assume when he gets hot and sees the ball better he'll lay off the high fastballs but its not a given or anything. Right now he's a pretty risky person to take with a relatively high ceiling since he hits 3rd on a team in a hitters park, but he is no sure thing.

Jenkins tends to heat up AFTER the all-star break. Here's his numbers from 2001 - 2003:

Pre All-Star
.266/.344/.484/.828

Post All-Star
.292/.363/.525/.888

Not that much change, but who knows...I may let him go for someone hot for now, then grab him later. August tends to be his best month.

August 01-03 #s:
.356/.440/.693/1.133

does anyone else second this opinion?

I just dropped him for Jay Payton (crossing my fingers). I'm way back in my league and needed to take a gamble.

One note...he was hitting against Escobar tonight who went 8 innings with only 3 hits and 11k's.

Horrid against lefties this season, and not exactly blasting against righties either. Can't see keeping him in shallow leagues, and if a Figgins is available, I'd sure rather have that SB production plus 3B/OF eligibility.
