Kubel hits homeruns against us. I think he only hits them against us.

Career

Home: .282/.335/.456, 18 HR, 81 RBI
Away: .253/.317/.435, 25 HR, 95 RBI

He's actually a better power hitter on the road.

You're right. 13 HR 41 RBI in his career against the Sox. Most of any team he's played against.

Next closest is 5 and 11 against Milwaukee and 4 and 14 against Seattle.

Kubel is to the Sox what Carlos Lee is to the Cubs.....

Except that Carlos Lee is still really, really good. He just turns it up a notch for the Sox. Our Carlos Lee was Mike Sweeney in his prime, great hitter, absolutely abused us.

Kubel is an average player who lights the Sox up.

I hope AJ "accidentally" gives him the business this season.

It's pretty frustrating because average to below average players tend to abuse us quite a bit when it comes to the Twins. Nick Punto, Jacque Jones, Corey Koskie, Bobby Kielty, etc., etc. (I'm sure I'm missing a few)
