J.D. Drew was an above-average right-fielder here. Victorino is the best defensive right-fielder the Sox have had since Dwight Evans, and unlike his recent predecessor, dives for balls, runs into walls and wouldn't feel like himself unless he was playing with an aching body part or three. He can bunt, run and hit a home run, too. -- Edes
