Let me know when our defense reaches their level. Theirs hasn't been elite per sé, but very good. Much better than ours.

My point is this: we need a good designated hitter. We've got a pretty good staff, poor defense and an iffy bullpen. So why are we punting on a DH? A quality hitter with good OBP would make this lineup above average, if not good.

I missed that announcement. When did KW say that?

Oh for ****'s sake. Okay, why does it seem as though we are punting on a DH?

If we don't, I'll be thrilled. But given the statements of a lot of the front office, it appears we might punt on a DH. If or when that happens, I will be disappointed -- as everyone should be.

When was the last time KW telegraphed a move?

I'm not saying KW will acquire another good hitter. But I'm not going to assume what the Sox are saying right now accurately forecasts what they will do in the coming weeks/months.

In addition, I think the Sox can be OK even if they wait until midseason to acquire another hitter.
