On the way home after last nights horrible 12-0 loss, which i'm sad to say i was in attendance for, i was listening to Dave Wills' post game show, there were a couple calls about the sox not having a grinder like the angels erstad, eckstein, kennedy. After sleeping on this thought, arent Rowand and Timo grinders? Rowand hanst had a power swing this year and his average as been flirting with .300. Rowand has been hitting line drives and hustling, same with Timo. In my mind i contribute a lot of the sox's success to them. I also believe that Willie and Uribe can be developed into grinderlike players. The sox are a power hitting team, there's no getting around that. But if players like Rowand and Timo can keep "grinding" then i have very little worries about this offense scuffling.
