In defense of Jacque Jones

I just don't understand the hatred.  Hatred isn't too strong of a word either.  He's a decent complementary player.  He's not a star and he's paid comparable to his production.  He should be batting 6th but sometimes with injuries, the lineup gets juggled.  Let me post some reality from 2006:

RISP: .298
RISP w/ 2 outs: .277
Men on base: .314
Bases loaded: .385
Tie game: .297
Within 1 run: .307

Those were Jones' numbers in 2006.  Pretty solid to me.  Incidently, last season he hit best in the 6th spot with a .343 average.
