Good lord.

So much for a serious effort to upgrade the bench. ONe of the biggest holes on the team was a lack of bench-bat. Hahn (or whoever is pulling his strings) comes up with a career .260 OBP hitter.
Purely Ridiculous.

Wise may be a nice guy... I don't know. I can say though, that I can't ever remember a time I've been happy he's on the roster. ugh.

Who knows? He could break out again just to shut everyone up.

Not even when he made "the catch?"

Obviously this is not a move to sell tickets, but for the role he is expected to play I won't complain.

If he's a 25th man, I'm ok with that. More depth is needed.

I am fine with this move, he's a decent 4th outfielder.

Exactly. You primarily want your 4th outfielder to be a good glove man and Wise is definitely that. He has a little bit of pop, can play all 3 outfield positions, and provides some plus speed too. Pretty much a solid 4th outfielder. Just keep Wise out of the 3 hole and I'm perfectly fine with the move.

As a 4th OF, I'm okay with this move as well. If he plays every day, we have problems.

I don't think Ventura is the type of manager to play him every day.

He's a heck of a lot better than what people around here tried to convince us that fukudome was going to be. If we have wise the first half of last year do we win more games than we did in first half?

Fukudome only played 10 full games for the Sox so probably not

This also gives pause to any ideas that this team was going to stress OBP, when they get a 4th outfielder who can't get on base. He's nothing special defensively either. But he gets his hits in bunches, so people think he's better than he is, and he made "the catch", which has forever overrated his defensive skills.
And 4th outfielder is not 25th man on the roster.
I must correct myself - his stellar .295 obp for the Sox last year, raised his career obp to .264.
