Forget the Yanks...the Sox have to mend their own team.
Youk is not a #4 hitter and is too inconsistent . The Chisox
shut him down. The Red Sox cannot hit decent lefties
and the league has figured this out. Whoever designed this
lefty heavy team made a serious error. Our sole righty power
is Pedroia and Youk.... HELLO !!!! The Yankees can put
A Rod, Martin, Jeter, and Teixeira as well as Swisher at the
plate to challenge lefties. The Sox have no horns...really.
Even the Chisox were able to beat us with their righties and
decent pitching. We don't have a RH bat in our lineup like
Konerko...and that's what you need at Fenway. The Rangers
will come to town with Kinsler, Cruz, Young, Beltre and
Andrus from the right side, and Hamilton, Moreland and
Murphy from the left. That's called balance. The Red Sox
just don't have that balance, and that's why, they will
eventually slip to third place in the East.
