Agreed. Scott Podsednik wasn't a sexy move either, but he filled a giant need for the team. The small moves can make a big difference over the course of a long season.
3 years at 4 million per year is not a bad deal for the Sox, especially for a guy whose history suggests he can flirt with a .300 average and get on base regularly while playing above average defense. I'm sure a lot of teams would love to have a guy like that.
