It's like one of those SNL sketches that some find funny and others think it's too bizarre/awkward.

I think caulfield found his soulmate.

No stat will ever convince me of that, having watched most of his games.  He is awful.  Misreads the ball off the bat, has no speed to get to a ball, and has the worst outfield arm in the majors.  He is a DH, period.  And that’s fine, at least he won’t injury himself in the outfield again.  Two times is enough for one season.

This is an overreaction. We need his bat in the lineup from left field. He'll get better and do just fine there. Every player on the team can't DH.

No, it isn’t.  He’s awful.  We need his bat in the lineup, not his glove.  His glove is negative value.  We don’t really have a DH as of right now so why can’t he be it?

His bat is going to do the Sox no good if he costs the pitching staff a few runs every series and/or gets hurt consistently due to his clumsiness

I so want to say "Lighten up Francis" today to someone who hates the broadcast or hates everything in general.

And don’t call me Francis.

Bingo, vile hoopster is dead wrong here.

Eloy’s bat will be very good.

His defense sucks and costs runs.

He gets injured playing LF with his glove on his head.

Therefore, why wouldn’t you want him to DH?

If only the scouting dept. knew this.

You can always get an DH who can bat (well not the Sox this year, but usually). There aren't too many left fielders out there who are going to get 40 or so home runs for the next 10 years or so. He has a good work ethic; he will get better and be more than adequate.

Sign Marcel Ozuna for LF and sign a stopgap like Corey Dickerson for RF.  And maybe Steele Walker comes up after that.

Eloy can still get his 40 homers from the DH spot.  And Ozuna in LF will also hit and play much better defense, improving the team overall.
