I suspect because he was a first round pick who Kenny had a lot invested in by trading a popular center fielder from a world series winning team to clear room for him and also as late as 2008 Kenny was saying Anderson would hit .275 with 25 HRs. The Sox had a lot invested him as an everyday player and to try and turn him into a pitcher would be seen as a big failure on the part of the Sox and I suspect that Kenny and management didn't want to do that.

I think, I hope, that teal was heavily implied in that post.

Go Sox!!!
