Jason Dubois this Spring
4 home runs
22 total bases
Statistics from Cubs.com as of Sunday, March 20 @ 8:00 a.m. Yesterday's boxscore (3/20/05) indicates he did not play in the afternoon game against the Padres.
One of those hits may actually belong to Jeromy Burnitz (scorer's error), but impressive numbers nonetheless.
I had the opportunity to play with Jason in High School ball and it was apparent back then that he had the talent and wherewithal to make it to the bigs as he has proven. He has the physical attributes to be a very powerful force in the Cubs lineup, and perhaps a diamond in the rough. He does not possess the speed of a Sammy Sosa, nor the fielding abilities of a great defensive player, however two key characteristics you should keep an eye on with Jason are:
1) His Arm - Uncontrolled but very very powerful.
2) His Bat - He is a monster when he wants to be, and also disciplined.
He is worth a starting position, perhaps not what the Cubs are looking for right now, but it would be shortsighted to overlook an opportunity. He can and will produce. The problem with getting a cheap player is that you have to take the risk, if not, that player is no longer cheap, because they have proven themselves and will command a much higher salary.
What is there to lose in giving him a chance? A pennant is not won or lost by a single individual, but rather a team. If Jason provides at his position, money or experience should not be the primary driving factors.
