He was 1 for 7 as a PH, with that one hit being the homer off Thornton, and sucked otherwise.

In his career as a PH, he is 4 for 29 with 2 HR and 5 RBI.

A few clicks gets you the facts. Doesn't anyone want to take a few minutes to look anything up?
Actually, I believe the pinch-hit HR was against the Yankees with two outs in the ninth that game where the Rays rallied to make the playoffs on the final day of the season. He also homered off Thornton last year, it was a 3-run shot and not in a pinch-hitting role.

Other than that, we're on the same side in this debate. I suppose Dan Johnson could help the Sox, but I wouldn't bank on it. He's never been good at the MLB level.
