In response to baddad's comment:
its amazing how nobody seems upset about not having agon amymore.......as advertised he was a 300 hiter,,,good for 100 ribbies and a doubles machine at fenway as predicted,,,as well as a gold glover......everything but the long balls,,,,i say he will be missed,,,,,,when we got him we red sox fans were celebrating,,,,,,,now its kudos to cherington for getting rid of him,,,,i think thats ridiculous....im sure dodgers would have taken some decent prospects instead,,,,,,maybe its just me but ben just seems like a larrys puppet,,,,,,and thats gonna hurt us,,,,,does anybody agree
Maybe nobody is missing the losss of Agon, because it was sacrificing him that allowed the Sox to also dump the salaries of Crawford and Beckett.
Beckett was done here and maybe done period...Crawford has recently come forward saying he was uncom Now to most Sox fans that turned out to be addition by subtraction.
Gonzalez was given the humungous contract because not only did we expect him to hit for average, with a high OBP, but we also expected 30-40 HRs in that package. In addition to that, Agon was looked upon by others to be a leader...a role he never bought into here, so that is included in this reaction by fans as well.
How much Agon truly will be missed will be better answered by who ends up replacing him at 1B in 2013 and beyond.
