#56T Darrin Jackson

Those are some dark and fuzzy people in the background. Insert your own joke here.

Jackson had a really strange career including:
  • Getting 11 ABs in 1985 and 5 ABs in 1987 before finally qualifying as a rookie with 188 ABs in 1988.
  • Despite playing 12 years and hitting 80 HR, he had nearly half of those HR in just 2 seasons (1991 with 21 and 1992 with 17.)
  • He had an enormously bad OBP of .293 and a horrific K/BB ratio of 480/131.
IMPACT FACTOR 1/10: Jackson did fairly little in parts of 4 seasons with the Cubs, and then left town in a trade involving players all either past their prime or with no prime.

Darrin Jackson is now part of one of the most beloved or despised (depending on your rooting interest) broadcasting teams, along with Hawk Harrelson.
