Well, I want the Sox to have an excellent team.
He doesn't have much power; his obp is okay with no power, but nothing special. Like I said, on this team, he's a blessing. If our catcher, and 2B had his numbers, we'd be a lot better.
Tonight we played the Marlins, who are probably baseball's worst (and are just awful even if they aren't the worst). yea, a productive out would have given us a margin, but 2 or 3 runs won't win most games.
