    Depends on what you think he's going to be. If he can truly fix his k rate and get back to that .250/.350/.450 ceiling with average defense in CF and plus defense on the corners....he's a 3-4 win player. If his k-rate is only marginally fixed, then yes, he's probably only a 2 win player...but that's still fairly valuable, especially for the first 3 year of free salary Jackson (much in that mold of why Barney was valuable coming out of 2011 to 2012). If his k-rate isn't fixed as all...then he's just fully broken and worthless.

    I still think he's fixible to the point of getting back to where we hoped he was. Unlikely, but possible.

    I love Brett, but the Cubs pretty much have to say this stuff about him, it doesn't really mean anything until we see that it's real and that it's working.

    That being said, Brett's problems are almost completely mechanical, so he is the type of guy who much more conceivably could make drastic improvements to his K-rate, as opposed to someone like Lake where it's more of a plate discipline issue.

    Well, they are both LH CFers who played for the Cubs. That's about as far as the similarities go.

    Do you guys think after they speak highly of player to the media, the FO and coaches all go into closed rooms and just talk **** about a player?

    I can imagine quotes of "Jackson ****ing sucks, or Vitters? I'd rather have my dentist playing 3rd base than him".

    I still hope Jackson starts in CF. Everyone is looking for low risk, high reward players to sign to increase the Cubs player value moving forward. There obviously isn't anyone with lower risk than a pre arb prospect already on the team, and I doubt you can find anyone whose ceiling offers more excess value beyond 2013 than Jackson who will have 5 years of control left. Even if he's only a 2-3 win player, that still has significant value at his pay rate.

    If the Cubs don't plan on aggressively competing next season, I don't see anyone I'd rather have in center than Jackson.

    I am dying to hear this argument. Wait not really.

    He might get one more season to prove his value if he can stick that long.
