A thought regarding Austin Jackson before departing

It has been just under two years since I began writing for Mets360.com, and it has been an incredibly educational and pleasurable time spent with you all. As I need to take some time away for a while, I am left wondering if I can leave something for you. Clearly my signing of Yoenis Cespedes in our GM Project was a move worth reconsidering, but thankfully that was with play money...

Seattle Mariners: Projecting the Starting Lineup

1. Austin Jackson Jackson was acquired at the trade deadline in the three-team deal that sent David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays to the Detroit Tigers. Jackson is one of the top defensive outfielders in all of baseball, but his above average hitting sometimes gets overlooked. He struggled mightily at times after arriving in Seattle last July. Look for Jackson to bounce back and...

Silver lining? Not for Tigers' Jackson

Now you can't judge a suit by its cover, either. Tigers right fielder Austin Jackson proved that Thursday at Comerica Park, where he loudly showed off the unique lining of his suit coat before an afternoon game at Comerica Park. Teammate J.D. Martinez captured the moment on video and posted it on Instagram.   Hopefully for the Tigers, Jackson's bat can live up to all that suit-coat bravado.

Jackson finds a new home in the middle of the batting order

Austin Jackson has gone from setting tables to cleaning tables. The Detroit Tigers' center fielder batted leadoff the first four years of his career, but is hitting either fifth or sixth this season. It's a change that came after he hit eighth in the last three games of the 2013 ALCS to shake an awful slump. That move was born out of desperation, but it was the beginning of Jackson...

Tigers notes: Austin Jackson thriving in new batting order spot

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is wearing out pitchers consistently, and batting .483 halfway through the Grapefruit League season.

I'm just trying to keep...

Detroit Tigers: who is most likely to flop?

Last week, I looked at three x-factors for the 2014 Detroit Tigers. Now, it’s time to examine the likely 25-man roster and determine three players that have the biggest potential to flop in 2014. As in the last article I’ll nominate one player from each position group (offense, starting pitching, and bullpen). Caveat: by no means am I saying that these three players will all...

Austin Jackson can dunk a basketball with ease (Video)

Baseball America named him the best 12-year-old baseball player in the nation in 1999 and the best 15-year-old player a few years later.
