I'd guess that'll he'll finish at .255-25 HR-88 RBI-82 R and be a very forgettable player. I'd wait until he starts showing some sign of life at the plate and then maybe start him for a week or two to catch the upswing. As soon as he gives you a bad week, bench or drop him, b/c he might be gone for the next like 6 weeks after that.
That is an incredibly generous line for A. Jones. I agree with you that he has been historically streaky. But that was then, and this is now....he is easily 20-30 pounds heavier than he was in his prime and that extra weight is definitely hurting his productivity.
I think he'll be around .230, 20 HRs, 70 RBI, 60 Rs.
The Dodgers would be better off benching him and letting Pierre/Kemp/Ethier play everyday.
