The Red Sox have enjoyed some magical moments from Darnell McDonald and Daniel Nava this year.  Both of these players have handled themselves well while Jacoby Ellsbury, Jeremy Hermida, and JD Drew arf on the mend.  Most Sox fans would probably agree that this tandem is not going to put up consistent power numbers or stolen bases to compensate for the losses of Ellsbury and Bay (off season).

Reddick has not really contributed much since being called up and it is time to go get a MLB caliber outfielder.  Tuesday nights game against Colorado showed that this team can not continually depend on hitters one through six without having the young OF's getting big hits (HR's). 

Theo Epstein needs to contact teams like the Brewers or Royals and get a veteran outfielder who is an offensive threat to win a game with a HR or a big hit (DeJesus, Podsednik, Corey Hart, Ryan Braun).  The AAA kids are not going to do it on a regular basis and before long the Rays will be hot again.  Stop waiting and go get some offense!
