1st base is the deepest position in the majors. Most teams best sluggers are first basemen. However we get our big production numbers from third and we have a better, more productive shortstop than most teams. Still, Jacobs isnt bad. He played all last year with nagging injuries.
His numbers 469 ab, .262 avg, 325 obp, 20 jacks, 77 rbi's, 105 strikeouts.
Since you asked here are some 1Bs that are worse than Jacobs: Ty Wigginton (TB), Thorman (Atl), Sean Casey (Det), Ryan Shealy, (KC) C. Kotchman (LAA), Dan Johnson (Oak), Rich Aurilia/Ryan Klesko (SF), Scott Hatteberg (Cin)
There are a couple others who are about even with Jacobs like Conor Jackson on the Dbacks and Toronto's Lyle Overbay. Jacobs is a middle of the pack 1B right now but lets see what he can do when healthy.
