I'm happy for a fellow IU allum and hope he develops into a solid major leaguer, but the excitement over his offense is out of proportion to what he has done offensively.
Do you realize that some of the things Phegley has done this week haven't been done by a Sox rookie in centuries? Flowers first five games were better than Phegley's?
What did he have two or three RBI?
What is that statement based on?
