He could have been such a monster if he'd been stuck between or in front of Papi and ManRam in Boston... But they put him after them and so pitchers figured out they didn't have to pitch to him.
He never took the steps he needed to either, though. He was fairly good for us the first year we had him and we did perhaps give up a little bit too quick, but the guy can't hit a breaking ball to save his life. Watching him golfing at junk with that big bat was more than comical at times. I'm more than OK with what we did with him too. Turning a AAAA All Star into a Billy Wagner rental and Anthony Ranaudo is pretty sweet, even.
