Bogaerts should take over the job at SS in less than 2 yrs. Iggy can be traded this winter and Ivan De Jesus and Ciriaco will be sharing the duty next season with Aviles also being traded. Bogaerts should stay at his current position and could probably hit the majors as early as late 2013 if keeps performing like he is right now. Bogaerts are getting better and better at fielding as he plays through out the season and there shouldn't be any question marks about his offense. I would love to see Webster and Brentz added to 40 men and get the callups to see what they've got in the big league.. also they should see signigicant time in ST 2013.[/QUOTE
Seanny, good for you. Glad someone is getting this straight. You hear all this talk of moving Boe somewhere else but I want him kept at shortstop where it's been a black mole since after the 2004 WS. We need every bat we can get in the lineup and to have a power hitting SS is a bonus that can only help us. Iglesias simply cannot hit ML pitching and he never will. He also has very poor plate discipline and no power whatsoever. We would have to have eight solid hitters to carry such a stiff in our lineup and we should all be painfully aware by now that every Red Sox season there are always two or three hitters we're depending on who come up with a miserable season.
