Madrigal could be ready for opening day in Pale Hose Talk Posted January 5 8 minutes ago, hogan873 said: I see Soxtalk is Soxtalking. Madrigal has played a grand total of 29 games and has had 109 plate appearances at the major league level...and we're writing him off as garbage because he made a few rookie mistakes. He batted .340 in those 109 plate appearances and played a pretty good second base. Maybe we give him a full season before deciding he's trash. Great analysis, his hitting skills our outstanding and once he gets baseball strong he will be someone that will be a huge plus for this team.
