Looks like JM finally decided to have consequences for bad fundamental play. Jimenez is not in the lineup today. Harris is starting at 2B.

Good, I'm not sure but I'm assuming Rowand is starting in cf, he's been hitting much better, and this really helps the sox defense too, cause rowand is a better cf then willie, and willie is definetly a better 2b then jimenez.

Rowand is terrible in center field. Running into walls, breaking the wrong way on pop flies, and letting baseballs get over his head late in the game are all symptomatic of a centerfielder who has NO CLUE what he is doing. Rowand is repeatedly guilty of all three.

The Sox' situation in center field is terrible, but I'll take Harris over Rowand out there any day of the week.

I think people tend to confuse quality center field play with some exciting plays made by a reckless player.
