Dayan Viciedo hit a grand slam with this (Adam Dunn's heavier) bat last night. He's using it again tonight. pic.twitter.com/vtkSpTVEHC

The first three were not with the team for most of the season.

I did say they need to add a couple more bats.
The pitching was near the top,and continues to be without Jake.

The Giants were Champs last year, and this year they stink.
It happens every year, in both directions.
The Sox led the division last year with 8 days to go in the season.
Stranger things have happened.

Fickle game.. Its not as though the Sox were a whipping boy this year getting blown out game in game out. They have lost a bushel basket of 1 run games, turned into the "Twilght Zone" Sox on the base paths and in the field.

Next season we'll be bitchin about them not being 20 games over .500 when they are just 15.. Baseball.. another experience of love and lament.

6th in Pitching--10th in Fielding and 15th in batting. Beckham certainly improves the defense at 2nd but he has played 72 games and has 7 errors himself. Phegley and Garcia are not major improvements defensively over Flowers and Rios. So defensively they need changes in several areas. Offensively, a couple of bats + Garcia will probably not be enough. They need to replace 4 or 5 position starters not 1 or 2.
