JBJ has a 463 ops in 570+ PA away from Fenway in the last two years. In his career, he’s 116/195/173 when used as a substitute (77 PA’s). It will be shocking if he’s useful in Toronto.

It’s a major league deal for JBJ who stays in the AL East.
JB Eh?

I think he could be quite useful in his original expected role in Boston: defensive replacement, 4th outfielder and occasional platoon starter. Those roles are more often seen on playoff contenders than will be seen on the Red Sox 2022.

I expect to see JBEh go crazy in Fenway on August 23-25, with 4+ wallballs off the Monster. Bloom should probably make plans to be out of towne for the entire series.

Well it could have been worse. It could have been MFY or MFR

I hope he gets a rousing ovation for all the BJ games at least more than Hosmer got in KC (especially since we will have more than 10k fans)

He’s gonna rob 2-3 Red Sox potential HR’s in RC and OPS 1.250 in the 3 games. Book it.

I'm guessing that none of the above are the reason that he's on the team. Toronto doesn't have a shortage of hitters and IMO JBJ will be playing the role that he should have been playing in Boston. 4th-5th OF/late inning defensive replacement/last guy on the bench.

Well, ol' Jackie's at least adding to our collective shadenfreude (with a little help from former dance partner Benny, from ESPN) "Jackie Bradley hit a two-run, go-ahead double down the left-field line, the ball bouncing off the wall and past Benintendi".

And then Beni didn't get the greatest jump on Kirk's 2-run double (almost 3-run double, with Vlad Guerrero being about 2 feet behind the runner in front of him and just being tagged out at the plate). So, ex-Sox guys were crucial in the NY game yesterday.
