My basic point remains: Iglesias has progressed to the point he is the best SS the Sox have; however, for now the Sox own Drew and I have no problem with their starting him in the near term. I prefer Iglesias for lots of reasons, but can live with Drew for now.
This is the mentality that keeps us losing. Play the worse player, because he is getting paid more, and the GM needs to save face.
It's not about the GM saving face. It's about the organization recovering the most from both their shorter term investment in Drew and their longer term investment in Iggy.
By playing the worse SS?
It's losing baseball, saving face or not. It's why we lose.
