After each game, we'll be taking stock in each players... and maybe Manager's ... performance. If we like what we see, we're buyin'. If we don't, we're sellin'. Or maybe we'll just hold onto our stock until we see more next game.
Adrian Gonzalez: Gonzo got hot against the Orioles this series and extended his hit streak to 5. He didn't hit any homers, but he did everything else with the bat. In the series Gonzalez hit .462 (6/13), with 4 doubles, 3 RBI, and boosted his batting average to .306 for the season.Gonzo
Jacoby Ellsbury: Jacoby had a monster series, batting .500 (7/14), with 2 doubles, 3 RBI, and 3 runs scored. Jacoby came into the series batting .219 and finished with a .264 average. Ellsbury will be riding a 7-game hit streak into the Seattle series.
Marco Scutaro: I know he didn't play much, but when he is in, he does nothing. 2 hits in his last 17 at-bats and a .189 batting average is a clear explanation why Lowrie has been getting most of the nods at short.
Carl Crawford: 1-for-12 in the series and back down to a .160 batting average...terrible. It is time to shake the dust off and get his act together before it gets ugly in Boston.
David Ortiz: Ortiz hit .416 in the series (5/12) with 5 singles. Ortiz only scored 1 run and didn't have any RBI but is heating up. Ortiz also has a 5-game hit streak and once we are out of April, the power will come back to his swing.
