It is kind of what I call an empty .300. No walks, little actual power, and a ton of outs.Originally posted by greenflute98
Yeah, I agree Bill. I think it was finally a smart trade for the Red Sox. I believe Hillenbrand was batting somewhere in the 300s though. But we already have good hitters. We definitely need some good, reliable, consistent pitchers.
He's not horrible, but he is the kind of guy that Oakland would trade for a good young pitcher. The new GM in Boston is doing a good job. Closers are overrated.
