Interesting. Walker seems to be doing well in Atlanta, which only further convinces me that I was wrong to think he was the problem here. Sox hitters suck because they suck, not because of Greg Walker.

We'll see if Brett turns out to be a good hitting instructor. Most of the elite hitters who've tried their hand at it haven't been effective teachers because they couldn't relate to the lesser players who needed the most instruction.
