When trades with Boston came up I said to myself "The one player I hope they don't acquire is Brandon Jacobs." Naturally, I am not happy. How many non-baseball athletes who can't hit are the Sox gonna get before they realize the hit tool is the single most important tool to project major league success?
Maybe this is good value for Thornton, I just believe Jacobs will never hit AAA pitching, let alone in the majors.
Witness to the agony ('76 Sox season tix) and the ecstasy (2005 World Champions!)
