What kind Of stats do you think Conor will put up over time? His power doesn't seem to be there this year (lots of doubles though) Seems like he might hit for a decent average...Does he project as a Jeremy Reed without speed? I already have one Jeremy Reed, and that's one too many :-D Is he strictly a 1B now as well?
Thanks

I'm no Arizona prospect expert, but I've heard his OF defense was less than adequate, so I would expect him to primarily be a 1B now.

Just looking at his numbers, I would think that over time a lot of those doubles will turn into HRs, especially in Arizona. 38 doubles at this point in the season is very impressive. You also have to be impressed by his amazing plate discipline. 69 BBs and only 32 Ks is rather remarkable. I personally believe that if his power increases as I expect it to, he could be one of the better offensive 1B in the league someday. Hard to argue against him having that kind of potential anyways.

Jackson will probably be starting at 1B for Arizona next season and is an early favorite for ROY. I too think some of those doubles will turn into HR. I'm hoping he gets called up this season so I can grab him in my keeper!

The D-Backs are moving Shawn Green to CF now, so IMO, there's going to be some moving and shaking going one. My guess is they're priming to call up Carlos Quentin to play RF everyday.

The only iffy spot here is Chad Tracy.....Conor should/probably will come up with Quentin.

Any word from anybody on my opinion? It seems so obvious with them moving Green to Center.

Jose Cruz was DFA and Jackson was called up to split time with Clark

.330 25-30 HR's with a sick OPS is about right... I'd maybe grab him in the later rounds of the draft... he's a pure hitter, might give you a decent average, and pretty decent for an OPS league.

i don't really know much about him, but the Red Sox offered 3 prospects for Conor, and were rebuffed by teh D-Backs. That has gotta mean one thing....he is untouchable and held in high regard by the D-Backs.

25-30 may be high right now. I'd say 15-20 right now if stretched out for a season. Doubles don't turn to Homeruns because we will them too. I think have an excellent OPS and maybe a .300 hitter, but he isn't the best 1st base prospect out there. You can take a run on him in a keeper, but I would grab Fielder instead if you you can.
