I was more or less with you until
Show the love and remember that JJ is going to be drafted in the first five rounds of the MLB draft regardless
What team is gonna draft someone who can't hit? Honestly, JJ reminds me a lot of a more talented me when I was a kid. Great leather, never a liability in that department, but just can't hit. Put a machine in there, I'd drill line drives all over the field. As soon as it was a live arm, though, I'd just do my best to work the count and hope to get beaned or walked. I don't know what his impediment is, but he absolutely has the talent to hit better than what he has the past two years. But he hasn't done it. I trust PM's decision to keep him in the lineup, but I've pretty much given up on him being able to provide a base hit, ESPECIALLY when we need it.
