In response to RedsoxProspects' comment:
So far Bogaerts has only cost his team 1 run at SS while last year he saved his team 2 runs in limited duty at SS. The sample size is too small to make a move to me.
agreed Boom. to me, it would be foolish to move the kid.
Im still not sure how people can say that 3b is more "natural" to him or that hes a better 3b when he has just a handful of games there.
He's a SS and always has been.
He's always been a mediocre fielding SS at best. That's the point.
I get the plus factor of having a SS that can be a top 3-4 offensive SS in MLB year one, but the fact remains: until he shows he can be an average ML defensive SS, the talk of moving him to 3B is expected.
If Marrero proves he can be adequate offensively, then the move may be made despite Bogey becoming an adequate fielding SS or even a slightly plus fielding SS. Of course, if Middy or Cecchini are stars at 3B, then the talk will cease as well (at least until Naps contract runs out).
