A lot of discussion and hair-pulling in the Price elbow thread about JBJ. He's struggling... yet again... on possibly his worst and streaks of all time. Are the Sox stuck with him for the season? Is his defense good enough to compensate for his nothing-bat? There's some metrics out there that show he's nowhere near as good as we all seem to think he is... I can't even begin to say how much I disagree with the stats. Defensive stats to me are still like Roman numerals compared to the Persian Algebraic system of offensive stats at this point. To me, his arm and his defensive skills are on a whole other level. But would shifting Benintendi there during all Home Games and putting JDM in LF make for a better complete package? It'd be a way to get 2B and 1B and DH and even 3B as moving parts/rest for Pearce, Chavis, Devers, etc.... I'm however (as I'm sure both Cora, DD not to mention just about every other SoSH member) concerned about not just letting him uncork himsef... we all know what sort of damage he can do when he gets on a hot streak. He starts to look MVP-worthy during those sometimes 2 month long stretches. I'm not good at looking and analysing batting stances, swings, all that crap... I've also only been able to watch 3 games this season but he looks tight and twisted up and more frustrated than I've ever seen him before. I don't think trades or Rusney F'in Castillo are the answer (for obvious reasons on both).
