In reality, Valentine has been handed a garbage sandwich..
I can't use the real word on the website...but you all know
what I mean. This club is a joke....they can't hit and can't
pitch...bottom line. OK..maybe they can pitch a bit. but if
the lineup Valentine is given is composed of scrubs, they
cannot score runs. This is evident in their record. Good
opposing clubs just outscore the Sox and put them behind
the eight ball early. ie. the Tigers , Rangers, and Yankees.
the only reason they beat the Rays was because the Rays
also have lousy hitting. Even the Orioles have better hitting.
They have an all star catcher, good center and right fielders,
a decent shortstop . etc. etc. The Sox have PApi and that's
it. Don't expect Pedroia to carry this club. Forget Agon...
he's a soft .300 hitter who is not a leader. Youk is on the
downside. This is simply a last place club. Valentine has
his work cut out for him to put it mildly.
