    early signs such as what?  A couple of errors when every play seemed to be at him in the alcs. 

    [/QUOTE]

    Now, now, steven, let's stick with the facts, please.

    Iggy only started 4 games in the ALCS, and came in late for defensive purposes in the other two.

    In 4 games plus a bit, he made 2 costly errors.  That's bad no matter how you spin it.

    Did Iggy miss any game or even an inning in 2013 for the Red Sox? I don't think so.

     

    Hfx must have something against Hispanics based on what I have seen with how a number of posters here treat others if they are anti-Ortiz.

    Please don't go there.  I have been accused of the same thing over some Pedro comments.  I was and am an iggy fan but different people see different things in a player.  Iggy is a great player with a huge enforsement from david ortiz.  That's all i need to know.  If some don't like him, I doubt anything but his stats are the reason why.

    With all due respect, race has nothing to do with one's opinion on a player.  For example, I'm Korean and I bet that Suk Min Yoon (whom the O's signed during this offseason) will be designated for assignment by July.   LOL

    Am I the only one wondering why his shins were never brought up before? Especially, since he was out during his time in the minor league for possibly the same ailment?

    They were never brought up before because shin splints are usually not that big of a deal.  If not on the field Iggy can still hit the weight room and still do light non impact cardio.  The Tigers knew every issue with Iggy and still signed him.

    [/QUOTE]

    Be warned that you travel down this path at your own peril.  Anything defending Iggy will be met with a barrage of posts from the water-carriers for the FO talking about what a great trade it was, how the team needed this trade to win the WS, and making a case that Iggy really isn't that good anyway. None of which are true IMO.

    My opinion is that by 2016 Iggy will be firmly entrenched and playing a GG SS for some team and RS fans will be saying, "Why don't WE ever get players like that??" or "It MUST have been a good trade because we won the WS three years ago."

    Drew.

    I'd rather have Ozzie Smith, but he's not an option.  Of the options you presented I'd rather have Iggy, with Bogarts and Middlebrooks fighting for the 3B position.  That's a fight that Bogarts would win, as Ek would say, "just to stay loose". That would leave Middlebrooks as either trade bait or learing to play 1B.  I like 1B for him, but that's just me.

    Drew has had injury problems, of course.  He had the severe ankle injury that he got trying to score a run.  Last year he missed time due to 1) a concussion from getting beaned in the head; 2) a hamstring injury he got on a double.  So his injuries have been straightforward ones suffered in game action.

    Iglesias' situation is different.  He's a 24-year old who has been shelved 3 times because of issues with his his shins.  That's a little unusual.

    Against an extremely weak field, relatively.  The guys Iggy finished ahead of in voting were:

    Chris Archer

    Dan Straily

    J. B. Shuck

    Cody Allen

    Martin Perez

    David Lough

    Finishing 2nd in ROY voting is not a very reliable indicator of future stardom.

    Fair enough.  Non-passive/agressive reply, ok?:

    First and foremost, I take offense at your calling my post "boring".  I understand that you don't agree with me but calling my posts boring puts me in the same class with Bill and THAT offends me! Smile

    We all to some degree post about what other people think.  I think we can all say the same thing, that if we were good enough at recognizing talent we'd be ML scouts, so we put a lot of stock in what other, more qualified people say.  I rely on two things - other people's opinions and my two eyes - and when both things tell me the same thing I can't help but think I'm right.

    There are people in RSN - and some who post here - who think that because the Sox won the WS in 2013 that Ben can do no wrong.  I'm not including you in that list.  That's your decision to make.  Those are the people I referred to as "water-carriers".  But I'm not one of them.  I think Ben did a good excellent job, but he's not infallible and when I disagree with what he does I'll say so.  Sometimes I'll be right and sometimes I'll be wrong, but I'll say so.

    I can handle a difference of opinion but at the same time I expect other people to treat me the same as I treat them and their opinions - with respect.  Well...all but Bill. 

    Fair enough?

    Iggy's BABIP (.414) suggested a huge regression in the second half.  Which is exactly what we saw.

    .235/.274/.306

    Even the first half, he was hitting ground ball singles and blop singles.  He never really scortched the ball.

    I'm not trying to bash Iggy...only suggesting that it is a real big possibility that he showed us one of his best offensive seasons already last year.

    He turned back into a pumpkin last year in the second half and I don't expect him to show much improvement from that.  I think he will be a .650 OPS guy next year.

    1B is a waste of WMB athleticism.  Maybe one day it will be the best place for him, but that means his bat HAS to play.  The Sox are never going to give up on a guy like WMB this early let alone move him to 1B.

    Yes I do have a biased towards giving the young guys a shot, but I also think it is painfuly obvious that this is the Sox F.O. plans as well.

    Love em or hate em.....WMB and Bogaerts are your starting 3B and SS this year.
