Garrett Jones has been a big producer for the Pittsburgh Pirates over the past few seasons.  Since coming over from the Minnesota Twins, Jones has worked his ass off and has become a player Buccos fans have gravitated toward during the past few seasons.
GFJ isn’t the best first baseman and struggles mightily on the base paths.  But how cool would it be to see him TOOTBLAN again?  The guy can;’t even make it on base in order to be thrown out on the base paths like a nincompoop anymore.
The struggles are well documented for Jones, but we will list a few anyway.  The man child is hitless in his last 19 at bats since getting a hit against the St. Louis Cardinals on August 15.
In Jones last 15 at-bats against southpaws he his hitless.  The one hit Jones has against southpaws was good for a homer back on April 20.
But Jones has done some cool things this year, including putting a ball into the river, nearly killing a pair of bikers riding on the river walk on a tandem.  At AT&T Park, Jones has done work going 11-for-27 (.407) with three doubles, a homer and four RBI in his last eight games in San Francisco.
The Pirates are giving GFJ every opportunity to break out of his funk.  Tonight sounds like a great time to start.

    Well that mammoth home run and that great PA against the lefty where he drew a walk was a great start to working his way out of this funk.

    His sliding catch in RF late in the contest was rather impressive too. Funny, soon after the catch Hurdle placed Harrison in RF for defensive purposes.

    Most of the line-up has been below expectations. GF has shown above avg. fielding in RF and at 1B all season long. He has a way above avg. arm. I say be patient.

    • Campbell Sproul

      “Most” is a stretch. Russ-Mart, Jordy, and Pedro have all performed far better than expected.
