And he had trouble fielding balls on the ground to his left or right, which pretty much means he had trouble fielding ground balls. That's not a good attribute for a Major League outfielder.

Hopefully this is only a prelude to finding a sucker to take De Aza. I'll be very disappointed if he remains on the team in 2014. He was the poster boy for the dumbest Sox team of my lifetime.
I agree with the primary priority being to trade De Aza as part of getting (hopefully a catcher) some talent to upgrade the roster-

I don't want him on the roster- but at that salary and with his history of production on offense- I think he'll have some value-
