If you walked up to the average non-baseball fan on the street and asked them to name some Sox players, they probably couldn't name more than 1.
Gordon should be that guy because he's home-grown and reasonably handsome, but he hasn't produced like a star, yet. I really don't see how a #9 hitter can be a leader. Rios plays like a star, but he's quiet and reserved. Perhaps Sale can be like Blackjack McDowell?
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
