In response to Schumpeters-Ghost's comment:
Reddick is 25 years old. the "experts" here - aka the people who hate Reddick because they were wrong about him - apparently think there is no way he will be better next or the year after.
In the meantime, the Crystal Closer is proving that he can get a few saves on a last place team with nothing on the line.
Will be interesting to see is he is active next april or out with another injury.
Sweeney, I must admit, has done nothing. But the "experts" have a point with sweeney. he does have a high average for a guy who literally has a bat made of Gouda.
When the "experts" get it wrong they hate that. This is why they hate players like Reddick. The "experts" all thought Nava and Kalish were better than Reddick and they hate being reminded of it.
A similar thing will happen if the Sox fail to keep Ellsbury.
I don't hate Reddick, but really, I just don't see why people - OK, one person - gets so worked up over this guy. The Sox have traded away better players and survived, Every team has.
And the Sox needed pitching. Ill-advised relocation of Bard to the rotation or not, they had no pitching depth. I always thought moving Bard to the rotation was dumb, but stll think they needed more arms for both the pen and rotation. I also think blind hatred of Andy Bailey is dumb. You act like its Bailey's fault your modern Babe Ruth got traded. ..
