Bradley has struggled mightily at the plate in 2014, hitting .216/.288/.290 with one home run while looking overwhelmed by major league pitching in the process. Bradley's offensive struggles factored in greatly...

Boston Red Sox: What to do with Jackie Bradley Jr.

The Boston Red Sox have one of the best defensive outfielders in baseball when Jackie Bradley Jr. patrols center field. His bat, however, is one of the worst in the MLB and his approach at the plate has hit rock bottom. On Sunday, Bradley’s golden sombrero (0-4, 4 Ks) raised his hitless streak to 0-35 including 18 strikeouts. This past weekend we saw some great defensive plays...
