Plus, here is a quote out of an article...
With Blanco gone, Hillenbrand being peddled for anyone with more walks on his resume, and whispers of Nomar's availability, I fear that the Sabermetricians in the Red Sox front office are about to pull a "Newt Gingrich in 1994" over-reach.
OBP Uber Alles has come to Boston. I hope they know what they're doing. I see a LOT of people misinterpreting a very specific skill set that was/is possessed by Derek Jeter, Chuck Knoblauch, Paul O'Neil and Tino Martinez as "taking pitches," rather than "fouling off tough pitches."
Good enough for you?
