I've been a big Joe Crede defender, and I still think we need to give him more time, but his hitting with RISP is killing us. He had some big clutch hits early in the year but his season RISP avg is .156. Case in point is his pop-up in the 7th tonight, against the flubs. For heaven's sake, all you gotta do is put the ball in play and the game is tied!:angry:

Crede has been a bust, plain and simple. He has not improved one bit since his rookie year. As a matter of fact, he was much more dangerous that year at the plate. He has a terribly long swing and his energy level is just awful.

It was a big play in the game and Crede tried to turn on a high and tight fastball instead of looking for the outside pitch and going with it. He's shown that's where he's most effective. Instead, he elected to go for it all and popped out meekly to the left side.

Hopefully the Sox can muster a big comeback... About 4 runs in the top of the 8th.

Of course, Ozzie will probably give Frank his obligatory at-bat pinch-hitting. I just hope Hurt can put a damn fine swing on it and either tie the game up or help the Sox take the lead.

Either way, here we go.

Crede, unfortunately, has a boatload of physical talent, but doesn't have the mental capactiy to be a solid to above average ML player.

The man was 0-for-9 in the series. There's not much else to say.

You are correct, sir. I think it's about time we start looking for a third baseman.

Lack of patience, he assumed the next pitch would be a strike so instead of waiting for a pitch in his zone he swung at a high marginal strike/ball pitch.

Patience at the plate !!!!!
