what makes you think he'll drop off? I think he has the tools and the potential to put up a 30 HR/20 SB/80 RBI season

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 wouldn't be worried about that, I mean he is hitting .370 w/ that babip. Not even looking at his babip you should know he won't keep up that type of average year long. If he was hitting just above .300 w/ that type of babip I would think twice, but not right now. He has shown a much better approach this year than last year.

Because he is on pace right now for a pretty impossible season. Basically if he continued this pace he would have around ... 196r 35hr 133rbi 21sb - .371/.436/.652

That's obviously not going to happen...

All i'm saying is that Adam Jones has the potential to put up great stats. Obviously he's not going to smack in 133 RBI but I wouldn't be surprised at all if he hit around 25-30 homers and stole 20 bags. He has that in him.

I agree, but you asked why you thought he would drop off. Unless your playing in a 2x2 league, there is no question his stats will drop off.

I drafted him in every league I could and he is making me look like a genius. A bit of a post hype sleeper.

I keep telling people that once he opened his eyes he was able to fulfill his potential (in reference to his yahoo player picture with his eyes shut, which has now been replaced by one with them open)

Jury is still out but that Bedard trade isn't looking very good due to the fact that he only started 15 games last year.
