Well today he's batting 3rd cuz Ortiz is serving his suspension, but they said on the WEEI pregame that he's probably gonna bat 5th, so he should drive in alot more runs ;-D

Aug 1 After trading for Expos shortstop Orlando Cabrera and speedy Dodgers outfielder Dave Roberts, Red Sox general manager made it clear that the team needs to run more. "It was a flaw on this club," he told the team's official website.
Views: Roberts has 33 steals on the year and Cabrera has 12. We'd love to see the Red Sox get more active on the base paths.

After all, why would they trade for 2 speedsters if not to let them do what they do best?

Also, you were right, he did bat .280 in July and not .265


Click "last month on yahoo". He batted .280 in July, but yahoo says .265 over the last month (however the hell they define that, since it also says he had no steals and he's had 2 in July.)

Still, .280 with 2 steals, no homers, and a .681 OPS isn't decent.

his value just went up a ton. still im not so confident that the red sox lneup woll remain one of baseballs best. besides ortiz and ramirez who in the sox lineup really scares the opposition? nixon is gone for a while, noarr was shipped out.

im guessing the lineup will look something like this (by position)

varitek
mientkiewicz
bellhorn/reese
cabrerra
mueller
ramirez
damon
kapler/millar
ortiz

not nearly as scary as it looked preseason with nomar, nixon, and burks dhing.

Would you guys think Cabrera's value is more than Kaz Matsui's now?

That's his problem. He's too streaky for my liking.

I would take O Cab over Kaz without hesitation. I am not a Matsui supporter. NZF said it right, he is too streaky and hasn't proven he can persistently deliver.

I'm considering picking him up in the event Jeter goes down with the hand injury...

Probably drop Maggs for him since it seems he'll be out of service for the year.
