I have seen and heard some things about JJ tonight and over the past few weeks, I have even said my piece, but we need to remember something about this guy, he has potential.
Tonight was the first time in his LSU career where Jacoby Jones didn't start. He has started in every single game since arriving on campus. Not too shabby.
Also, he is a beastly 2B and would hate to have him watch the games while someone else weakens a pretty solid middle infield.
He is 1 for his last 27 and hasn't hit a HR since Feb 19th. His last RBI was against Auburn.
He is figuring out how to layoff the close pitches. That is where the majority of his walks are coming from. It isn't because pitchers are pitching around him, it's because he is seeing the close ones, maybe a bit too much. He is roping the damn ball right to almost every player on the field every game. He has a black cloud floating over him right now.
He isn't Ty Ross. Remember this. He is in a terrible slump right now and thank god it is now and not later. He will bounce back. He needs to have a spot in the lineup and we ride him out. He never misses another game...fact.
Show the love and remember that JJ is going to be drafted in the first five rounds of the MLB draft regardless.
