Allen Craig’s Return Could Help Fix Boston Red Sox’s Biggest Deficiency

BOSTON — The Red Sox on Thursday added a serviceable plug to their leaky offense. Allen Craig, who suffered a foot injury Aug. 1 in his first game after being acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals, returned from the 15-day disabled list.

Allen Craig is SO last year

That’s the general consensus, right? Allen Craig: has-been. Oscar Taveras: savior. Only, it’s not as obvious as it seems. But then it is. And then it isn’t again. It’s … complicated.
