Is the Boston Red Sox’s version of Rudy the real deal? Daniel Nava has reached base safely in 15 of his first 20 at bats since being called up. Definitely a small dose but impressive none the less. Nava, who reached base on all 4 of his plate appearances yesterday, smoked his 2nd career home run in the win against the Mariners. After the game he said, “I didn’t think it was gone. Knowing how big the wall is and seeing some other balls that guys have hit, I didn’t think it compared to a [Will] Middlebrooks bomb, or the one Shop hit later. I thought it was going to go off the wall, but I was surprised that it barely squeaked over. But I’ll take it, I’m not going to complain.” Neither will we Daniel.
