Conor Jackson, who is shelved for the year due to valley fever, may need a change of scenery. He is a former 1st round pick who put together 3 decent years from 2006-08, when healthy. High average, low strikeouts. Can also play 1B.

There is talk the D-backs might non-tender Jackson, making him a FA.

I bet KW could step in and scoop him up in a trade for very little if the D-backs truly see him as a non-tender candidate.

I wouldn't be against this at all. I've always liked Jackson's approach at the plate. If we get rid of thome and dye I say go for it. He could play dh and spell paulie at 1b every so often. If they are thinking about non-tendering him than it will not cost much in a trade. Plus, the last high prospect (TCQ) that we got from AZ has been pretty good for us so far....lol!

Will we hear Kenny say, "We want The Conor Jackson!"

Didn't Kenny make a play for him last year before the trade deadline? I recall Jackson's name coming up in the rumor mill......

Yes, I would love to have Conor Jackson on the Sox. Get on it Kenny!

There has been talk in the past of some interest on the part of the Sox.
