Tigers about to acquire Jacque Jones

New, 5 comments

The Tigers are apparently about to get Jacque Jones from the Cubs, in exchange for utility infielder Omar Infante.

Yawn.

Jones is a good defensive corner outfielder who can't hit lefties, so if they platoon him with Marcus Thames (they still have him, right?), that's probably a solid arrangement (although Jones didn't hit righthanders either last year).

But if the Tiggers are going to play Jones everyday -- or, for that matter, if Jones hits righties in 2008 the way he did in 2007 -- then they are going to have a problem...
