After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value.


Daniel Nava: Nava was explosive out of the lead-off spot, going 6-for-9 (all singles) from that spot. Nava also recorded a pinch-hit double in game 1.  His performances did wonders for his batting average, boosting it from .302 to .340.

Dustin Pedroia: After leaving game 1 due to issues with his thumb, we thought it would be a definite trip to the DL. He returned in game 3 and stunk it up with an 0-for-5 performance. Pedey is obviously more injured than he is showing and he can't help the team much in that condition.

Adrian Gonzalez: 2-for-11 isn't going to cut it and the frustration continues.  His average did stay consistent at .257, but his overall value continues to drop.

David Ortiz: One of the few guys keeping it consistent. Papi hit 2 home runs in the series with the grand slam being the standout highlight.

Cody Ross: Not a bad showing in his return to the Red Sox. A homer in the first game, a bases clearing double in the second game and a single in the third game. I'll take it.

Jarrod Saltalamachhia: He played his usual 2 out of 3 games in the series and he is getting back on a hot streak. Salty went 3-for-7, with a home run and 5 runs scored, giving his value a nice boost.

Will Middlebrooks: He lead the comeback last night and was a beast in the series. The Sox need him in the lineup every day.

Kevin Youkilis: Youk finally took a step forward by going 3-for-7 and making himself look a little more appealing to other teams. I don't think his trade value will increase, but positive offensive performances won't hurt.

Ryan Kalish: Kalish didn't put up huge numbers but he did swing the bat very well. He is going to be a big contributor in the future.

Mike Aviles: Another average series while being shuffled around in the lineup.

The Bench: Shoppach was the only contributor of the bunch with his 2-run homer in the first game. McDonald and Punto did nothing.

Starting Pitching

Fortunately the offense came alive in the series, because the starters had a tough time with Miami. Each starter gave up at least 4 runs and no one went more than 6 innings.


The pen did a good job for the most part, getting shaky performances from Miller and recently re-activated Mortensen. The biggest positive to come out of the bullpen in the series was Aceves' 2, 1-2-3 inning saves.


They came out of the series with a sweep, so it is hard to say anything bad about Bobby.



Again, they came out with a sweep. I don't care if they did it against a bad team or not, they put some W's on the board.
