You need offense to win in the American League, and the Sox don't have enough. And, yes, I know baseball is not an offensive sport. However, I just watched the worst defensive team in the league take a 2-0 lead in the ALCS yesterday.
He's not that good an offensive player either, doesn't hit for average, doesn't know how to take a walk, strikes out a lot, not a threat on the basepaths if he does manage to get on, I really don't see why people put so much value into a ballplayer with very limited skills.
