    Re: SOX are at .232 against lefties, ONLY one team is WORSE.....how can we fix this?

    delmon young was designated for assignment by the phillies, he would be a good right handed bat to play in LF. better hitter than gomes and more proven than nava who has tailed off hard. if phills will let him go cheap, we should take a shot.

    One way is to stop posting lies.

    Per Fangraphs.come, the Sox are hitting .250 vs LHP, tied for 14th in MLB with Minnesota, and just ahead of Atlanta and Cincinnati.

     

    Here is a link: http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=bat&lg=all&qual=0&type=0&season=2013&month=13&season1=2013&ind=0&team=0,ts&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=0

     

    Play aound, and you will see  the Sox are also top ten in MLB in OPS, wOBA and many other offensive metrics vs LHP.  Of course, they are pretty much first across the board against RHP, so there is a perception issue.

    I am not so sure Delmon Young is an upgrade over either Gomes or Nava.  Really, he is a bigger name and a bigger bust.  We went through the Young / Gomes comparisons on this board back in March when fans were "shocked" that Cherington avoided Delmon Young and signed a player who was just as good per WAR and who never threw a bat at an umpire...
