In response to ZILLAGOD's comment:
If that's the case, I actually see Toronto passing us for 4th place. Napoli is a career .259 hitter with no glove....sure he'll pop a few homers...but...
...if this is step one of a major "transformation" it's a step backwards.
How did the "pitching and defense" strategy of two years ago become...."forget pitching and defense, we'll just pay too much money for guys who can slug homers....but are inept in every other area of the game?"
Man Zill, politics aside, I find myself agreeing with you more and more everyday. You are exactly right.
Well Zilla, this endorsement is further just indictment of your comments...you got the pseudo-troll agreeing with you.
The fact is the Sox can now focus on pitching and RF, but they hopefully now have a guy that can solidify the middle of their line-up.
Plus, what pitchers have the Sox missed out on so far versus how many power bats are still in the marketplace?
