Hideki Okajima, RP
Maz's grade: B
As general manager Theo Epstein pointed out on the night the Sox clinched, Okajima's 2007 season led to impossible standards in 2008. Okajima was terrible with inherited runners, especially early in the season, but he's still one of the better relievers in the league. Is he an eighth-inning guy? Maybe yes, maybe no. But the Sox need him now more than ever.
