Pedroia Gone, Patterson In
To my loyal readers, I'm sorry I didn't make posts over the past few days but I was backpacking. In any case, Dustin Pedroia was injured with a broken left foot in my absence. But knowing they needed a replacement fast, the Red Sox acquired second baseman Eric Patterson (right) from the Oakland Athletics. So far this year, Patterson is .204/4/9 and A's fans were really giving up on him, which is good because the Sox only needed to give up minor leaguer Fabian Williamson (ever heard of him?). In 5 seasons in AAA, Patterson batted .309 and he adds some speed and a little pop. I hope we see the guy a little. By the way, on Friday the Sox lost and yesterday they won, they are still 2 games back.
