2007 Community Projections: Jacque Jones

In 2006, Jacque Jones had a line of .303/.358/.528 (.886 OPS), and hit 21 HR and drove in 59 runs, with 33 walks and 83 strikeouts in 433 PA.

Wait, you're saying, that's not right.

Yes, it is. That's his line vs. RHP -- if he could do that against everyone, he'd have near-superstar status (note the word near, incidentally).

Against lefties he had only two walks and 33 strikeouts in 145 PA, with a line of .234/.261/.416 (.677 OPS, which is Neifiriffic). It's not that much different for his entire career:

vs. RHP: .295/.343/.493 (.836 OPS)
vs. LHP: .228/.275/.350 (.625 OPS)

If only he had a manager who recognized this difference and who would bench him against LHP, so as to make the most out of the abilities Jones does have, and also to give some playing time to someone who's earned it, at least in a platoon role (Ryan Theriot, who ought to play 2B vs. LHP, with Mark DeRosa moving to RF).

Makes too much sense, so it probably won't happen. Thus, my call:

AB 520
R 70
H 144
2B 29
3B 0
HR 22
RBI 71
BB 38
SO 115
Line .277/.326/.460

Incidentally, I have not forgotten all the other players we've already done -- I am saving all the projections to be posted all at once, probably in about a week after we do all the pitchers.
