Extra Bases

Good production at a deep discount

In Darnell McDonald, Daniel Nava and Eric Patterson, the Red Sox have taken three players off baseball’s scrap heap and produced 8 home runs, 17 doubles, 35 RBIs and 34 runs scored.

That trio has hit .275/.342/.435 over 255 at-bats.

In 275 at-bats, Johnny Damon has 4 homers, 22 RBIs and 50 runs scored with a .761 OPS. Damon will cost the Tigers $8 million. The Vagabond Trio has cost the Sox roughly $215,000 so far.

You have to give credit to Theo Epstein and his staff for filling in the gaps as well as they have.
