After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value.
Kevin Youkilis: He is really hurting his trade value. He exploded in game 1, but the struggles continue and the patience is growing thin around Boston. We all thought that could have been the slump breaking game.
Marlon Byrd: I might be getting a little ahead of myself, but I like the addition of Marlon Byrd. Especially compared to Darnell McDonald. Byrd contributed with 4 hits and an RBI against the other Sox and is batting .308 with Boston. Not bad for a guy that is 10 years past his prime.
I liked what I saw from everyone, even Beckett. They finally got their act together and made people realize that they can pitch. They will be up against some bad teams in May, giving them a huge change to build up their confidence.
How can you not like what the Sox have been doing lately? Even with the poor performance on Sunday, this team is getting recognized again, for the right things. They have a great opportunity to keep it going.
