I can almost guarantee he wont hit 30-40 HRs. My predictions are similar to his 2002 numbers. .300, 27 hrs, 85 rbi, 10 sbs.

The Great Jacque Jones, so far this season:

This season, he's faced Detroit, Kansas City, Seattle, Chicago, and Cleveland.

The numbers for each of those pitching staffs:
Detroit--24th in OPS allowed (.777), 18th in ERA (4.66)
Kansas City--23rd in OPS allowed (.774), 27th in ERA (5.29)

Against Detroit and Kansas City, Jones is hitting .450/.577/.900 with 6 walks and 3 strikeouts in 20 at-bats.

Seattle--6th in OPS allowed (.684), 9th in ERA (3.80)
Chicago--3rd in OPS allowed (.646), 3rd in ERA (3.12)
Cleveland--2nd in OPS allowed (.637), 8th in ERA (3.78)

Against these teams, Jones is hitting .367/.406/.567 with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts in 30 at-bats.

So, against crappy pitching staffs, Jones has walked 6 times in 20 at-bats (once every 3.3 at-bats). Against good staffs, he's walked twice in 30 at-bats (once every 15 at-bats).

Personally, I'll wait a while before I proclaim this to be a huge breakout season for Mr. Jones.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

Plus, three freaking weeks is a VERY small sample size to take against years and years in which he hacked at everything. I'll want to see a full year before I agree that he's reformed his ways and improved his plate discipline.

Hmmmm........maybe I should pick him up and sell high to those who actually believe in the contract year myth. ;-7

he's off to a fine start, along with hunter, but i'm inclined to think hunter will be the one who stays closest to his current pace. i have both on various teams and i can see jones hitting something like 80-90, 25-30, 80-90, 10, .285-.295 if he has developed more discipline. but only time will tell
