In response to RedsoxProspects' comment:
By the way, Iglesias has hit .280 since joining Detroit, and had some of his best fielding plays. He's still hitting .320 for the year and has to be considered in the running for ROY I would think.
3 yrs form now we'll know who won this trade. Is Iggy continuing to hit the way has this year If so then probably an all star or is he a utility guy if he goes back to his career norms and all those bleeders don't continue to find all the holes? Does Peavey help lead the RS far into playoffs and like Hanley will easily be forgotten by RS fans? Have to give Ben credit, because RS have as good a shot as any team at baseball to win it this year, and as we all know those chances to come along all that often. Even if Iggy becomes an all star and RS don't win it this year when the chance presents itself you have to go for it! Go RS!
I agree. Can't sit idly by when you're arguably the best team in baseball. Still don't think that trade happens if they had a healthy Buchholz all year though. The trade covered their arsse Neglect if they didn't.
For a team with so many streaky players, the team as a whole hasn't been streaky at all. I chuckle about that from time to time. Sox lead MLB in series wins last time I checked so they're doing something right. Got that sinking feeling when Miller got hurt for the year, but it hasn't fazed them. And even if Buch doesn't come back, a 4 man rotation in the Post Season isn't unprecedented really.
