He could have been such a monster if he'd been stuck between or in front of Papi and ManRam in Boston... But they put him after them and so pitchers figured out they didn't have to pitch to him.
He never took the steps he needed to either, though. He was fairly good for us the first year we had him and we did perhaps give up a little bit too quick, but the guy can't hit a breaking ball to save his life. Watching him golfing at junk with that big bat was more than comical at times. I'm more than OK with what we did with him too. Turning a AAAA All Star into a Billy Wagner rental and Anthony Ranaudo is pretty sweet, even.
Kinda looked goofy, not saying it was a balk....but it didnt look normal.

Damn it. Our starting staff has gone to ****.
Here's hoping Beckett and... A.Miller...?... keep being consistant
bc with Lester, Bucholz and Dice-K hurt, Wakefield being inconsistent and Lackey being the worst pitcher in baseball right now...
We need someone to step up.
Thank God the all star break is coming up. We need it.
