that being said, is it me, or is this the SOFTEST .400 you've ever
seen? The guy hurt a couple of rallies last nite. I really really really hate that batting style of his. Makes it hard to React to Fastballs, especially if theyre INSIDE.

One thing I will give him credit for is hitting with 2 strike counts. He is very hard to strikeout and fouls a lot of pitches off.

Well, included in those last 10 days are his last 7 days which include 6 starts. During those 7 days, he has an OPS of 1.432. That included a BA of .500 (8/16) 2 doubles, 1 HR, 4 RBI and a .813 slg%. So it isn't amazingly awesome, but a .813 slg isn't bad...

Yes, pretty good. Too bad those stats haven't translated into more victories on this road trip. I still am not happy with his D in CF. Ouch. I still would prefer Juan Pierre in CF and leading off with Robbie in the 2-hole.

Just translates a little to closely to Josh Paul for my tastes... :D:

Florida Marlins CF. Willie Harris with a .298 average.

Imagine how many more fastballs Frank, Maggs and Lee would see with this guy tearing up the bases.

Actually if the Sox had Juan,I would put Jose in the 2 slot to utilize his talent to hit fastballs better.

CLee is one of the best fastball hitters on the team. Gotta love his .964 OPS when batting second.

AMEN! (not to mention he has a better mental approach when hitting second, taking a TON more pitches and doesn't try to hit for power)

Maybe if the outfielders didn't play at the warning track they could get to more of those bloopers

He has definitely been better.

JM should just put him the line up every day and only take him out for late inning defense. If Rowand or Harris have a problem with that :whiner: ...too frickin' bad! :angry:

As Lincoln told Grant...just give me victories!!!
