That hits the nail on the head ... he made it look EASY!  A thing of beauty, indeed!

He continues to be pitiful at the plate but this spectacular catch, which he made look easy, saved the game last night.

Swung at ball four with the bases loaded and two outs in the 8th, the Sox trailing by one.

A rough, rough start. He hasn't even been himself in the field.

The depressing thing, if you own him, is this may be who is at the plate. A lefty-hitting equivalent of Peter Bourjos.

His solid spring training (.326/.370/.628 in 43 AB) did not carry forward.

Hit .269 Post All-Star but only .185 on the year against lefties. I can keep him for $15, which isn't great, but in a freeze league he'll cost more.

He's a frustrating guy, because he can't beat the shift, doesn't even try.

Avoided arbitration, signing for $8.55 million.

As noted in November, the Red Sox team comes out at -10 in defensive runs saved in center field in the Handbook. But that didn't keep JBJ from coming in fifth in the Feilding Bible Award voting for center fielders.

Bill James put him firs on his ballot; the Bid video scouts left him off completely. Clearly the scouts watched different highlight films -- or a lot more footage than just the highlights.

The issue for us is, can JBJ level out that uppercut? I'm thinking he can.
