    Oh ... by the way:

    I'm not concerned with Buchholz. I think the DL was more to protect Buch from himself. I think he'll be fine when he comes back in July.

    i hope you're right about buchholz, because his loss for any lengthy time would be more staggering than crawfords.

    I'm not part of the Crawford bashing brigade, but, nevertheless, it might be somewhat of an overstatement to call Crawford's loss staggering.

    And you came to this conclusion after studying his medical charts?

    Good lord ...no!

    Listen, they won with the antichrist, Julio Lugo...and I was the only one who actually liked him.

    I don't think they do, in spite of all the talk we've heard lately about Jose Reyes. I also think it would be a terrible idea to decimate the farm system for a short-term rental with Iglesias on the horizon for next year. Scutaro/Lowrie should be fine for the rest of this season. I'm a little more concerned about Buchholz than either of those guys.

    Lowrie, Scutaro, Navarro, Iggy. Nope. No need.

    I thought Lugo was OK.  I mean, he couldn't pick up a ground ball, and when he did, he usually couldn't throw it to first.  But hey, you can't have everything.

    Re: Do the Red Sox have a pressing need at shortstop?

    Absolutely.  Time to move Navarro and Iglesias up to the big club--or this season is lost.  This is a simple fact:  neither Scutaro nor Lowrie has ever done a forward flip when taking the field at the beginning of a game.  Consequently, neither one is anywhere near adequate on defense. 

    betterredthandead and others have argued that a good fielding shortstop will take 1.5 runs per game off the team ERA--which would give the Sox the best ERA in MLB.

    Max,

    Sorry to disagree, but first using betterdeadthanred as a scource for anything with regard to baseball is dangerous, as he knows little to nothing about the game.

    Secondly Iggy is still a young prospect and needs time to mature. Sure he's already at major league level in fielding, but his hitting is very weak. Bringing a young kid like this all too early could ruin any confidence he might be getting by gaining experience in Pawtucket. Don't be surprised if he's still in AAA most of next year, as well. 

    Lowrie may not be the best of fielders, but when he's hitting it more than makes up for his fielding deficiencies. And Scutaro is a decent hitter and fielder.  

    I'd like to know how anyone can come up with a figure/stat that a good fielding shortstop can lower a staff era and save 1.5 runs per game. Again Betterdead is one of the last scources I'd rely on. If you haven't noticed most folks on this board that know anything about baseball take little to nothing he says seriously. 

    Hetchinspete.
