Then the offseason rolled around and the Bosox offered me a 5 year contract as a bench player, which is not exactly what I wanted. However, I took the deal after a bit of negotiating figuring I could probably work my way up to the starting LF position after tweaking my player a bit and improving his stats. But I'm now on year 2 of 5 of my deal and I'm still stuck on the bench. I'm a 86 overal, and I've got killer speed and base stealing ability. My fielding is so so at around 60. My arm kinda sucks though at around 55, but I'm working on it. And what also sucks is now my main position which was LF is now converted to 2nd base after trying to get more playing time last season. So now I'm stuck defending 2nd base as a back-up to Pedroia. Which is not the main position I want to play. But that's not my main worry right now. What I'd like is to get off the darn bench and play every day. So my question is this. How do I get off the darn bench and become an everyday player..?
No announcement yet.
