If this was in conjunction with having more than 10 walks...I'd be more likely to buy it. But the truth is this is more than likely just a really lucky season. He'll have to not put up a .250/.290/.400 line for a couple of more years to prove this isn't an aberration, and honestly I'm leaning towards he probably won't.
You'd have to find a great deal, find someone who can play SS now and is cost controlled, because the Sox don't have a better internal option on the horizon anytime soon.

Riding shotgun on the Sox bandwagon since before there was an Internet...
