They became a station to station home run or nothing club....that didn't turn out very well.
In 2005 the Sox could beat you with a blast, a bloop or a bunt. In 2006 and on that was no longer the case.
Right, because Frank Thomas and Carl Everett where awesome at going 1st to 3rd on a single.
Shame on Thome for coming in here and replacing those speed demons at DH.
