Adam Jones Looking Real Good So Far...

Postby NYMetsIn2k4 » Thu Apr 16, 2009 2:18 am

Im sure a lot of other owners out there like myself drafted this guy in hopes that he could develop as the season went along but with his strong spring, combined with his great start to the year have me wondering how great he could be in 2009? Any projections for this guy? Hes already starting on all my rosters so im very high on him but i just wanna see how the Cafe views his potential. ;-D

PS, i know i could find boatloads of preseason predictions but now that hes solidfied himself in the 2-hole and hes hit the ground running, im sure those predictions may have changed

Love him before the season and the production has been wonderful. I'm afraid of jinxing him if i say my top end projection for him, but he defiantly has 20/20 potential w/ a good avg (plus being the 2 hole hitter will help a lot). The best thing about him isn't all his tools/talent, it's that he has a mind for the game and getting better, which IMO sets him apart from most other toolsy young OF.

Would be nice if he started running a bit.

wish granted.

he was one of my late round targets this year. ~.400 babip does worry me some, but it is a small sample size.

I certainly don't expect him to keep this up (he's a top 10 player right now), but he's going to far exceed where anybody drafted him. He may be a top 50 player, top 100 for sure.
