    Another bit to help put this in perspective:  the league overall vs. lefties - .249/.314/.391

     

             



    So the lesson we learned from the 'can't hit lefties' thread is that we hit lefties better than average?

    Correct Joe.  I will give the OP the benfit of the doubt:  perhaps it was just an ommission in the thread title - the Sox can't hit lefties ... much better than the league average.

    As others have pointed out, the Sox can in fact hit lefties--see the Sabathia and Pettitte games in the series prior to the Rays series--but they do have a problem with really good lefties.  They also have a problem with really good righties.  Good pitching will always trump good hitting.

    I would not be opposed to a good righty bat provided he didn't cost too much and fit into the lineup.  Someone else said and I agree that the bullpen is a bigger problem.
