1) Adrian Gonzalez doesn't have enough power to play first base at Fenway on a team in need of a power hitter. I don't know if he had some and it's gone, or if he's really just not a Fenway hitter. Either way, I didn't want the trade (though I do think it was time to sell high on Kelly and Expo), and I'd rather have Votto or Fielder or Youk at first and Beltre at third. Prove me wrong, Gonzo
2) Buchholz may or may not be able to pitch consistently at the major lerague level. He hasn't yet. I think he can, but as someone famously said, time's a wastin'.
3) Bobby Valentine's smile is gone. He looks shellshocked.
