The enigma that is Christian Vázquez at the plate

The enigma that is Christian Vázquez at the plate

Photo by Michael Reaves/ He is who you want him to be. The Red Sox may have been one of the few clear sellers on the market leading up to last month’s trade deadline, but there weren’t a whole lot of truly juicy rumors as they were mostly focused on trading role players.
