I haven't seen him play so no way to verify, but I've read that he's had a bad year on defense as well as offense. I have only seen this sporadically and don't know what to make of it. Anyone with more info please share.
He's had his moments, mental errors, weak arm, misjudging flyballs. He's had his great moments, too, because his speed and athleticism can make up for a lot. I don't want the Red Sox to trade him. I don't think his finger ever healed properly, and I expect him to do much better offensively next year no matter where he's playing, if he's healthy. But if the Red Sox do dump him at a discount after targeting him specifically and giving up so much to get him, then they deserve to have to watch him play really well for someone else.
