    Fact: If Jose Iglesias went 0 for his next 100, his average would still be higher than Will Middlebrooks

    Is than an unbelievable fact? Well, it's true. He should be in Pawtucket.

    His BA is higher than WMB and Drew combined!

    Pedey, Papi, and Ellsbury are hitting well below than Iggy.  They all should be in Pawtucket.

    How many at-bats does a hitter need to qualify for a batting title?

    Iglesias is not winning a batting title....although I think he has a very good chance to finish the season a .300 hitter. 

    WMB is starting to concern me.  Although he looked really good last night, still the at-bats need to translate into production.

    The good news is we can likely solve are 3B problem inhouse, and there's still a chance WMB turns it on.  

    But having Iggy definitely eases the pain.

    I believe a player needs 3.1*games team played to qualify for batting title.  So 162*3.1=502.2  Rule says a player needs minimum of 502 ABs.

    So Iggy needs 405 more ABs to qualify.  

    Sox have 87 more games to go.  

    Iggy needs to start every game from now on and has to have more than 4.6 ABs per game.

    Impossible that Iggy qualifies for batting title.  Very sad.

    But I think he's the leading candidate to win ROY award if he keeps his pace.

    A couple of really big flaws in the OP.  Flaw number one is the last thing the Sox want is for Iglesias to go 0 for 100, and one of their concerns is that he might go 20 for 100, which would be .200.  Iglesias has been terrific so far, but he is still inexperienced and there is still a justifiable concern his hitting will revert, not to what he was last year, but something not nearly as good to what he has been this year. 

    The second big flaw is in not recognizing the Sox have exactly the right number of "skilled" infielders, guys who can play 3B, SS, or 2B, and that numbers is four:  Pedroia, Iglesias, Drew, and Middlebrooks.  Ciriaco is long gone.  As long as the Sox are in the hunt for the playoffs, it's hard to see them changing out any of them and bringing up someone from AAA or AA.    An injury of course would be different. 

    Iglesias is happy and productive in his current slot, basically a super utility infielder who plays almost every day.  He is now the heir apparent to two jobs--SS and 3B.  And he knows he will stay with the big club to the end of the season.
