6/16/06 Linescore of the Day: Joe Crede

Crede’s defense remains a constant

3 for 5, HR (GS), 2 runs, 4 rbis

Against the Reds Friday night, Crede got the Sox off on the right foot (no pun intended) with a grand slam in the first inning. Garcia gave up 3 in the bottom of the first and looked like it might be “one of those games” but after that the Sox never really looked back and won handily 12-4.

I’m not sure what Crede is doing differently this year but I sure like it (yes, he’s on my APBA team). Last year, his offense was so-so to mediocre but in 06, he has really turned it on. His real monkey on his back, OBP, has even improved to .331 (from .303). That’s not great but it’s a definite improvement. At the same time, his average is up, flirting with .300 (05 BA of .252).
