I'm just happy I was able to put my feelings down about this situation, and, hopefully, put it to rest. He's not on the Sox anymore, the trade was made, Drew did an excellent job for us in his place, and we now have Bogaerts (who trumps Iggy anyway). It's a new season, Peavy may be great for us, and there may be new trades to debate. Let's just move on and let this one go.
Gee, I wish you'd thought of that before you started another Iggy bashing thread.
I'm very much in Moon's camp with this topic. I wanted Iggy to be the SS and Bogarts to be the 3B. However, Ben didn't see it that way and since Ben has more horsepower than either Moon or I the trade got done.
I put it behind me a month ago but apparently some poster(s) here haven't and insist on perpetuating the Boston tradition of kicking players on the way out. Oh well...
ditto. There was nothing wrong for many expressing feelings about losing Igg. Most have moved on because of the reasons you and moon stated, plus it is the nature of the sport. We have lost players before, some how when we lose a young player like iggy when money isn't a factor, it takes a little longer to get over.
I doubt jacoby's name comes up unless he goes hitless for a streak. He moved on for more money and that's that.
There's this never ending trend that attacks ex- Sox players (Iggy, Jacoby...) and a smaller trend that romantacizes them (Damon, Masterson, Reddick...)
I don't get the whole thing about hating iggy. The kid did nothing but play hard and made people happy to come to the park. How many players when traded, get a great endorsement from Otiz?
