Featured card: 2009 Topps Heritage High Numbers Jake Fox #588

This past season, Jake Fox burst upon the baseball scene in Chicago with eye-popping numbers [check out his splits] - he posted in June and July.

However Fox bottomed out the last several months and finished the 2009 season with a .259 batting average with 11 home runs and 44 runs batted in - it seemed like he could hit for a bit of pop [.468 slugging percnetage], but obviously wasn't going to be in the Chicago Cubs' future plans when he was traded with Aaron Miles to the Oakland Athletics for three prospects.

Though he is playing for a division opponent - I will interested to see how Fox does in Oakland if given a legitimate opportunity to play every day [at the very least get 400-450 at-bats as a DH perhaps].
