It's like the Red Sox made a great trade
The Red Sox had a rotten DH going into the Yankees series on June 9.
He had 2 homers, was batting .197 and had an OPS of .596.
It was a hole in the lineup who left the equivalent of a small county on base.
His very name in the lineup made Red Sox fans squirm.
Then they swapped that DH for a new DH...
Suddenly the new DH blossomed! He homered twice against New York.
Since June 9th, the new DH has batted .342 with 5 homers and 11 RBI... including a go ahead 3 run bomb tonight.
It's a great deal... crappy David Ortiz for awesome David Ortiz!
Man, that Theo is good!
