The numbers might not tell the whole story because the Sox faced a lot of lousy lefthanders early this year, but it's easy to see where the offense is not performing.

Team batting against left: .308 ba .405 obp .580 slg
...................... .vs. right: .259 ba .328 obp .413 slg

.Olivo .vs right .174 .240 .239 .
.Rowand .... . .200 .213 .383 .
.Konerko .... . .202 .290 .371 .
.Lee ......... . .224 .321 .347 .
.Crede ....... . .231 .247 .451 .

They need to throw these guys nothing but changeups, curveballs and sliders in BP. That is just awful.

Olivo is the guy the I worry about. After getting to see a lot of left handers against KC he had some early success . Now facing more right handers Olivo is reverting back to his 2003 form.

Any type of slider and Miguel is toast

I could have told you this was going to happen back in January. It's no secret the sox have righties from the three spot on down on most days.
