    surprise surprise.....well not really.  

    I'm torn, I feel like Iglesias deserves to stay and I'm happy the team finally has enough confidence to clear out a more permanentt/semi permanent spot for him however I also feel like he deserves to get at-bats everyday.

    I think some team will want Ciriaco. 

    Stabbed by Foulke.

    Well that was unexpected. :)

    Kind of a nice little problem the Sox have right now. Good depth in case of injuries and or possible trade chips to help fill needs for the second half of the season.

    I thought .446 was better than .234.  Guess $9.5M is THAT important.

    I am a bit shocked that they would relegate him to utility role.  I agree that his hitting will cool off, but Iglesias should be starting every day at least until his average dips below .400.  7 multi hit games out of the last 10, the other 3 were, 1-1 with 3 bbs, 1-2, and 1-3 with 1 bb.  I am still holding out hope that this is just one day and they'll continue to start him more often than not.

    No reason to worry about Iglesias.  He has made his point forcefully in two separate visits to Boston--terrific hitting and error free at both SS and 3B.    They are going to find a way to play him.  Plus he is fantastic insurance in case any one of those three--Middlebrooks, Drew, Pedroia--gets hurt.

    Re: Ciriaco DFA'ed

    When Pedro was hitting well, I warned the kool aid drinkers that his .299 minor league OBP in over 3500 PAs was going to catch up to him.

    When softy tried to claim Ciriaco was a better fielder than Aviles and Middlebrooks and should be the starting SS when Iggy was in AAA, well, I called him a clown (again).

    I still think trading Drew made the most sense, but who knows what was offered or possible.

    We are better with Will-Da-Beast over Pedro, and a solid left-side IF rotation might be in store...

    Drew: SS vs all RH'd starting Pitchers (about 65% of the starts at SS plus late inning PH'ing for Iggy vs RHPs) 

    Middlebrooks: 3B vs all LH'd starting pitchers (about 35% of the starts) plus about half of the starts vs RH's starters (about 33% of all starts)

    Iggy: SS vs all LH'd SP'ers (35% of all games) and 3B vs half the RH'd SP'ers (about 32% of all games).

    All three start about 2 of every 3 games vs optimal handed starters. The non-starter is aither a great PH option (Drew vs RHPs and Middy vs LHPs) of a great late inning defensive replacement (Iggy).

    as much as I dont like Drew's salary/competition with Iggy at ss, this was the right move. Drew is simply a better fielder than PC and this is essential as a sub...

    Ciriaco, in the past, did have some good games for us.  Unfortunately for him, and good for Iggy, things change.

    As with all players at that level, I wish him well and success with another team.

    True about the NYY, but he has been decidedly pedestrian against everyone else.  Right now, his ONLY advantage over Iglesias/Drew/Middlebrooks is speed.  Ciriaco has been terrible in the field, poor at the plate and he has made some really boneheaded base running mistakes this year as well.  Drew/Iglesias can run for Ortiz when required, and are far superior defensively.

    Until  WMB understands he should work on hitting the ball where it's pitched, the Sox would be better off with Iggy at third even if he hits .200--because he's a better fielder than "will da what?"

     

    Both Nap and WMB could be so much more productive and dangerous if they went with the pitch.

    Perhaps JF should consider putting Nava at first against tough RH. pitchers: Carp, Ells, SHaVic, with Nava at 1 B, Drew @SS along with Salty and Ortiz. That's a pretty good corp of seven LH bats. Pedroia can hit almost anybody.

    Oh well it was close: tonight against Cobb--Carp starts at 1 B instead of LF.

    Re: Ciriaco DFA'ed

    As someone who was Iggy's most vocal supporter turned detretractor when everyone loved him because he was bunting his way on base (I've still always maintained my support for him based off of his defense I've just not yet been sold on the offense) I must admit he looks good.  No matter what his numbers are bound to come back down to earth but if he can continue what he is doing at the plate it will be more of a softlanding than a crash.....and that will speak wonders for him to start full time.

    There will debate, people will angry, there will be the Drew haters because they won't understand why Iggy is starting.  BUT!!!! if you look at things on the larger scale, what is happening now is speaking volumes to iggy's chances at being a starting short stop in the major leagues.

    It's not like Middlebrooks is a 10 year vet who lost his job to injury.

    I agree with yoiur last word.

    A word of advice to our pitchers if they have to face Ciriaco.  Throw ALL breaking stuff.  The guy is strictly a fast-ball hitter.

    In a previous life, he was Pedro Cerrano, but Jobu got mad and not only made sure he couldn;t hit a curve ball but shrank him as well.Laughing
