    I disagree about the need for a right OF bat. Cameron and Drew fill that role nicely. Ellsbury hits lefties very nicely. Crawford is really the only hole against lefties Softy. I think this team might be better server with a righty DH, and a righty catcher with pop. Benji Molina. (BoSoxJoe5)

    With all due respect, Joe, this team has serious issues vs LHPs. Papi has done great thus far this season, but we have so many "holes" against lefties, it's hard to know where to start.

    Salty's career OPS number is below .600 vs lefties. VTek has hit lefties well, but it appears Tito is using him as a personal caddy platoon rather than a lefty-righty platoon.

    Even our great right handed hitting Pedey has struggled vs lefties for 2 years. (2010 .700/2009 .765)

    While Ellsbury has hit lefties about as well as righties, i wouldn't go so far as to say he "hit's lefties very nicely". He has a career .732 OPS vs lefties and .758 vs righties. His best year, 2009, he was .785 v LHPs/.763 v RHPs. Not "very nicely" at all, but there is still room for growth and improvement.

    Crawford has a career and 2010 OPS below .700 vs lefties.

    Drew has struggled vs lefties as he ages.

    AGon hits righties way better than lefties, but has had some good recent year vs leftie.

    Scutaro his lefties and righties about the saem, but not well.

    Only Youk, Cam, Lowrie, DMac and Vtek hit lefties better than righties
     and some of them aren't in the line-up when we face them.

    As a whole, our starting OF stinks vs LHPs (Craw/Ells/Drew).
