What? The Sox's 3B collectively hit .201/.286/.314 last season, easily the worst
production at that position in the American League (league average - .261/.320/.420). And this is before you even consider Youkilis's non-existent defense for much of the 2nd half. The Sox 3B play was a complete disaster last season.
