I don't get the base-clogger thing.
Thomas, Konerko (in his prime), Magglio and Thome all hit for average.
As much as I want to see the Sox as more a speed/OBP team, we're still going to need run producers. The key being guys who can do more with the bat than just pull the ball out of the park.
As long as we're not loaded down by one dimensional sluggers like Dunn and Viciedo, we're moving in the right direction.
