And I hope I get to make a similar post about Ortiz sometime in the future. He must put on a show in practice or something, they keep running him out there in the 3-spot.
And God help me, but Jed is making me miss Lugoat.
Agree with all of these-- I'm very impressed by Tek.
And Lowrie has come up in every big spot that we've had, and hasn't come through yet. But he's way harder to hate than Lugo.
Ellsbury doesn't seem to be swinging the bat all that well either-- Although part of that I'm sure was Kazmir making him look stupid yesterday.
The regression to the mean (or lack-thereof) of Dice-K and Lester will determine how successful the Sox are this year.
