Is It Time to Bring Roberto to Boston?

"Triple-A Pawtucket's Roberto Petagine hit a three-run homer and walked twice yesterday. The Red Sox need to turn John Olerud's job over to Petagine. He's hitting .331/.458/.644 in 65 games since returning from knee surgery." -- 7.26 Rotoworld

From Gordon Edes Boston.com chat:

"Jackie_Boy: Q: Gordo, Seriously, what are the Sox going to do about Petagine? The man deserves a shot. He has close to an 1.100 OPS!!! Can Olerud be traded?"

"Gordon Edes: Jackie...Boy: Ask yourself this: If the Sox thought Petagine could jhelp, wouldn't he be here by now? I think they see him as a 4-A player, outstanding Triple-A hitter, not quite good enough for the big leagues. That's why he went to Japan for years."
