    The fact that Iggy is not playing is a big pile of cow manure.  

    Anyway, GO RED SOX!!!

    I guess things are good when you can afford to bench a .446 hitter , who also happens to be one of the best glove men in the game. 

    Stabbed by Foulke.

    Its going to be difficult for him to keep his edge while he is riding the pine. I suspect Drew is looking over his shoulder a bit right now. He is not producing and if that continues Iggy will be the everyday SS soon.

    Things will be evaluated over the next 4-6 weeks at SS.

    If what continues  Pumpsie ?  Drew is hitting .345  .645 SLG  with two Hr's in June?   I like Iggy too but there is no reason to be less than honest

     




    You are right. I looked at his overall season stats without considering his on the job spring training. I just looked at what he has done AFTER the first two weeks here, which I consider his ST, and he is at .265/.829. I don't think Iggy will be able to produce those numbers with any consistency.

    Iggy will get his starts my guess is as many as Drew and Middlebrooks the next week or so  I look for a three way platoon as long as Iggy continues to hit.   Someone will play their way out of a job eventually anad I think that's fair. 

     

    One another note Drew is the leading  SS in fielding as we speak and 3rd in RF for what it's worth.




    Drew is not in Iggy's class defensively at all. I haven't looked up their respective UZRs but just watching him play, its pretty impressive. Drew is solid defensively; Iggy is spectacular.

    If the offense doesn't hit in too many DP's, I like our chances.

    Steven Drew's season is pretty much jinxed from here on out.  Orsillo indroduced him as JD Drew.



    Joe Castiglione did too, yesterday. Old habits die hard

    Good grief is that the best they can do.  Poor don, I bet it's a long game for him.
