Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Other than his single and run scored in the middle game, Salty didn't contribute much else. It looks like he has quickly transitioned back to a minor slump, as he struck out 4 times in 8 plate appearances.
Ryan Kalish: I can't say his value went down much with his 0-for-7 performance, because he is still transitioning from that quick rehab stint through the minors. I'll give him a few more games to try to get things right.
The Bench: McDonald and Shoppach each made their lone appearance in game 3 and each went 1-for-4, but Shoppach crossed the plate twice. They weren't anything great. The interesting stat is the difference in pitches each guy saw. In McDonald saw 22 pitches, Shoppach saw 9. I guess Kelly likes to get to the point.
Franklin Morales was the best pitcher in the series and if it wasn't for his 8 K's, I would have been a little more upset. I am not sure what is wrong with Lester and Aaron Cook was no more than mediocre. The Sox need more from their starters.
