BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Triple-A is chock-a-block with thirtysomethings, so you can't say Jason Dubois was a man among boys, just that he provided another reminder that he probably shouldn't be there.
2007 Jason DuBois finished among the International League leaders in home runs and RBI, which is probably what he`ll do for someone else this year. He`s trapped in the Quadruple-A zone without Rod Serling to give him directions.
2006 Acquired from the Cubs in a low-profile challenge trade for former Rookie of the Year candidate Jody Gerut, Dubois (pronounced doo-BOYCE) is a fourth outfielder with pop who deserves a chance to beat out Casey Blake for the right field job should the Indians fail to acquire a better option. He must forego the all or nothing approach he`s adopted in the majors and rediscover the patience that made his power so valuable in the minors, lest he become the next Jeff Liefer.
2005 Dubois has never been a favorite of scouts—unfortunately, he's in an organization run by an ex-scout. Still, he's climbed every rung of the ladder successfully and his timing appears to be just right, as he'll go into spring training with some real expectations of playing time, most likely as a platoon partner for Todd Hollandsworth with Moises Alou's left-field slot vacated. Dubois' biggest liability is his awkward defense: He was a little bit better last season playing left field than he had been in right, but that isn't saying very much. Still, he profiles as Jason Bay lite. If he can hit major league pitching like Bay did last season, his defense will be forgiven, especially in one of Wrigley's small corners.

(Matt Murton from Chicago)
Maybe if you're on Chris Iannetta's trireme? Sadly, I think you're starting to run into the same problems Jason Dubois did--you can hit, but not a lot of teams build platoons, and righty-hitting corner men without massive power or something else going for them tend to lose out. (Christina Kahrl)
