Connor Jackson Called Up.

Postby Copperheads » Thu Jul 28, 2005 11:42 am

I see that Connor Jackson was called up and will split time with Tony Clark and Tracey moving to right field. Does he have any value for this year? Anyone think he might be able to do what Chris Shelton has done so far for the Tigers?

Look at his friggin' SLG... that's way too much to not ever develop HR power... I think he's capable of 25-30 with a sick OBP/OPS. Maybe like Nick Johnson with more pop.

Not to mention he should get to spend the next five years in a ballpark that leans towards batters ... ;-D ;-D
