Well, Punto wasn't such a Turkey when playing the Sox in 2007 - he hit .247 in 65 ABs and while he walked 55 times on the year, 10 of those came against the Sox. Sox pitching had a knack for putting this gnat on the bases, allowing him to score 10 of his 53 runs against us. Great!!

While I was looking at splits, Vicente Padilla threw one game against the Sox last year and took the no decision. He lasted 6 1/3 innings, gave up 4 hits, 3 runs, and walked 6. Compared to the rest of the league, he had a successful year pitching against the AL Central (2-0 with a fairly good ERA and BAA).

#8 Drayton McClain could have moved up the list, had he managed to sign Rogewr CLemens to another "half-year" contract.

I'm kinda surprised Eljiah Dukes hasn't made any of these lists.

He makes the league minimum and is in the running for father of the year. Not quite a complete turkey, yet. He'll probably be out of the league and robbing liquor stores in a year or two. Give him some time.

You beat me to it, ND. I was gonna say that Punto must have batted .125 against the rest of the league because it seemed like he was always 3-for-5 against the Sox. I exxagerate, but apparently not THAT much.
