Newsletter Excerpt

I wrote this in my newsletter yesterday, just before he was traded.

Jason Dubois, OF
Is 9-for-18 since being demoted from Chicago. He looked like Jason Dubois: slow, strong arm, but not much of a fielder due to weak range. With the bat, has mediocre strike zone judgment, but a lot of physical strength, good drive to the opposite field, but can also pull the ball. Dubois hit .239/.289/.472 in 52 games for the Cubs. He'll need better plate discipline to boost his BA and OBP. I think he can do it if he is given enough at-bats to adjust, but the problem is that his other limitations make it difficult for most clubs to give him that playing time. Would make a reasonable platoon first baseman/outfielder. So would a lot of other guys.
