Jackie “Brady” Jr.

We’re all well aware of JBJ’s prodigious struggles over the past two seasons.  It’s been frustrating, painful, and just plain sad to see one of the Sox’ former top prospects look so completely lost at the plate.  I don’t want to discount what he’s done in the field, because it has been immensely valuable, and […]
