Default Re: JB jr Tearing it up again

He just has to cut down on the strikeouts. Averages about one every game or every 3-4 at bats. He has a sharp eye and tries to work walks and takes too many borderline pitches. He hasn't earned the right to a smaller strikezone like some others seem to have. But yes overall he is really starting to show improvement and driving the ball instead of being purely a singles hitter. I think his WAR is about 80% of what ellsburys is so that's just ok but he also only makes like 5% of the money ellsbury makes so so far it has been a decent trade off for the sox.
EDIT:
as of today, ellsbury and JBJ both have a .7 WAR(wins above replacement), JBJ has a higher RF(range) 3.01 vs 2.83, and a much higher DWAR(defensive wins above replacement) at 0.4 vs 0.0. Ellsbury is clearly better at the plate as all the bating stats are in his favor but JBJ is closely behind in all of those. Hope he keeps it up
