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.
Jacoby Ellsbury: Jacoby is en fuego right now. He's on a five game hitting streak going .421 with a pair of home runs. He's also third on the team with 27 RBI's and is hovering around the .300 area (.297). Does anyone want to take him out of the leadoff spot now?
Matt Albers: Pitched three shutout innings in the series, including two huge innings in Game 1 of the doubleheader and picked up a win for his efforts. Good to see that he got past that awful game vs the Cubs.
Tim Wakefield: Another strong outing from Wakefield in this series: seven innings, five hits, two earned runs, and only walked two batters. When the knuckleball is working like it has in the past two starts, it's a must buy.
Kevin Youkilis: It pains me to do this but after going 3-for-23, and even more shocking zero walks on the road trip, I'm selling. He's now hitting .169 away from Fenway. It's very un-Youk like (.279 career away).
Dustin Pedroia: Yes the home run was nice but it's not enough to keep me from holding on to him. He went 3-for-18 in the series and then to make matters worse, he's hitting .193 against right handed pitchers. Yeowza.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia: He wasn't going to keep the bat going forever so I can forgive the 0-for-7 because he did call two quality games behind the plate. Hold on to him for one more series to see if he can get back into the swing of things.
Jed Lowrie: Went 3-for-7 in the series. After struggling in Cleveland, good to see him improve. I'm not going to rush to judge with Lowrie (anymore) and just see what happens against the White Sox.
