Jack Cust

Has there been anoyone happier than A's GM Billy Beane after swinging a trade of a PTBNL for perennial Moneyballer Jack Cust? Yeah. The fantasy owner who picked him up last week!

One week later, and Cust has rewarded that lucky owner with a week that'd make Barry Bonds envious - 6 HRs, .469 OBP and 1.077 SLG!

I was going to run his career numbers in this post, but there are so many of them that I put them inside this post. Cust can clealry take walks. The question is whether he can sprinkle enough hits, mainly HRs, between the strikeouts to stay in the line-up.

Thoughts?
