DateQuestionAnswer
2009-02-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of "breakout" do you expect from Justin Jackson? Also, do you think Kevin Ahrens will step up his game at all?
(Bill from Toronto)
I'm far more optimistic on Jackson, Ahrens was just one of those guys where you'd go to the game and sit with scouts and they'd turn to you at some point and say, "really? he was first round?" I could see Jackson turning into this .260 hitter with a lot of walks, plus defense and speed. Kinda a unique old-school shortstop. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Lansing Lugnuts have an interesting team loaded with players from the Jays '07 draft, any guys that really impress you?
(Bill from Toronto)
TONS. I like Kevin Ahrens, I LOVE Justin Jackson and I think Yoherman Chavez is underrated. The future of the Jays really does reside in Lansing right now. (Kevin Goldstein)
