Jackie has been talked about a lot on the sports collection board I'm on. There are a lot of people writing him off as never being good enough to be a star because of the bat, I think he will figure it out. I don't ever see him being a .300+ hitter with 20 home runs, but with his defense he doesn't have to be. I see a .280 hitter with 10-15 home runs, while playing the best defense of any CF in MLB. I like that people are giving up on him, it's allowing me to buy some nice Bowman Chrome rookie autos for less than $20 each, when they were around $80 each less than two years ago.

0 for 4 today with 4 k's...i'm not sure he will make it through the rest of the week before being optioned for mookie betts. Who knows though? The whole team can't hit so maybe they will just keep letting him work through it.

His defense will keep him up. Betts' has about the same stats at the big league level JBJ does, and the defense isn't nearly as good. I think the Sox will keep Betts down, let him continue to do well, then trade him in the off season. He has a high trade value right now, and the Sox need pitching for next year.

Looks like his name is coming up in late season trade talks...

"Boston has numerous young pieces on the 25-man roster that could intrigue the Phillies, such as shortstop/third baseman Xander Bogaerts, centerfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and catcher Christian Vasquez."

Default Re: JB jr Tearing it up again

i think time is starting to run out for JBJ to produce with the bat if he is to stay with the Bosox, at 24. My guess is he'll have through preseason next year to show he is figuring things out. Everyone loves his defense, of course, but when he is on a team that is having trouble scoring runs, something that has always been a staple in Bean Town, that will keep him safe for only a short time. If he could become a .250 hitter with modest power, they might hold on to him.

My guess is a similar one with Justin Smoak in Seattle. Either start producing with the stick early next season or get unloaded for whatever they can get in return, even if just a decent draft pick. The difference is, Bradley might get a little more time if he finds a team that scores runs easily and need the glove, but Smoak has had too many trips to the minors and injuries in his short career with not too much production in return. Yeah, he has power and is a switch hitter, but Smoak is no longer a youngster. 1B is a place in the lineup you expect to find more pop.

Obviously, I hope I am wrong on both counts as each player are among the best to play at Carolina and I have been a huge Red Sox fan for many decades...longer than I have even been a Gamecock fan, in fact. Seems to me both are thinking too much at the plate instead of doing what comes natural..."see the ball and then hit it." It's like a golf swing. You get so caught up in all the technical aspects and mechanical parts in swinging the club, you seldom repeat successful efforts. Only when you learn it and then forget it does it feel good and you start having the type of results you desire.

Well, he did a little better last night. Got an RBI on a Sac fly, went 1 for 3 with a run scored, hit the ball in his outs.

Surely you only mean in the Bigs. He was a fixture in the 3-hole here during the first College World Series Title. He also absolutely KILLED the minors.

The truth is : there's a big hole in his swing. Throw him hard, up and in. Hopefully he'll fix this issue in Spring Training next year.

Yeah should have said fundamentally. He did hit well in college but i never liked his plate approach. I used to think he couldnt see the ball well, he would take some great pitches, then swing at crap. I dont watch much pro baseball, but i figured that would be a big reason why. That and the hole youre talkin about

Oh well he is learning. It took smoak some time too

It's still taking Smoak time because he is back in the minors right now.

Went 2 for 3 today, with a walk. Couple of singles and his out was a fly out to center. Boston got crushed, though. He had a solid Saturday and Sunday. Might be battling out of it.

Saw something in the Atlanta paper today that they want to work on a change in his swing. The best place for that is in the minors.
He'll be back up in short order imho.
