Interesting that the Sox have the same issue this year as last, when they rode Chris Young all season as the situational righty bat. A decision from which I still suffer PTSD. Then they tried to patch it up with Rajai Davis who proved predictably useless. I still contend that Bryce Brentz could've popped a few over the monster down the stretch, but he probably wasn't going to be a difference maker. This season they aren't in any better shape to match up with a late game LOOGY, since Nunez has some weird reverse splits, especially in terms of power. Hanley could've been a real threat off the bench, but now it's up to DD work some deadline magic with maybe $3 mil in payroll and a Flotsam and Jetsam prospect package. Not a lot of holes on this club, but I'll be keen to see how this gets addressed over the next few months.
