It seems like Owens didn't just fail to make the team, it sounds like he's in the dog house--being dropped from the 40-man roster. The simple facts are that he's at least as good as Wise and is probably better, especially on the base paths. What kind of a predictor is spring training anyway? Last year Owens burned up training camp and Quentin was ho-hum. His injury was the only reason last year was a lost season. His 2007 performance still suggests talent to me, though I'm not saying he is the second coming of Willie Mays. Too bad the Sox can't carry five outfielders rather than just four amongst the 25. I realise they can't send Wise or Anderson down to give Owens another look without potentially losing them on waivers. That said, play him everyday at Charlotte and bring him up midseason if he burns up the minors--if Wise and/or Anderson flop. I think Ozzie is testy because he doesn't like the dilemma either.

How could anyone not see this coming? They have needed a solid lead off hitter for a long, long time. You can't get that one done on the cheap. I love almost every trade we make, but surely, we could have gotten something done over the winter to solve the number one problem on the team.
