    Jose Iglesias for a front line pitcher

    (Or even second-line) This crying about "over-worked" doesn't wash. The "pen" was lousy in April, and they sure were not over worked then! They are simply not very good. period.

    you dont think the pen is overworked???????? cmon - they fell apart last september because they had ONE MONTH of bad starting pitching - imagine what it must be with an entire season of inept 4-5 inning starting pitching....those bullpen guys all deserve purple hearts...

    Jose Iglesias currently has limited trade value as a defensively gifted but offensively challenged shortstop who will earn more than $2 million as a 23-year-old in 2013.

    Most franchises already have defensively adept shortstop prospects who struggle at the plate.

    except iggy has been hitting hot in AAA as of late. if he keeps it up the rest of the season then his trade value will be at its highest. plus we have depth at SS in the organization and a big need for a top of the rotation guy. if hes the sweetener that gets us someone good then so be it

    We should be giving Iglesias a full shot at becoming our shortstop for years to come. His hitting is getting better and , by all accounts , he is one of the best defensive shortstops in baseball. Bogaerts can easily convert to third base or left field. The other shortstops in our system have not shown that they are anywhere near being ready.

    C'mon Ike....by "getting better" I take it you mean his MiLB OPS is up to a pathetic .624 (lower than Punto's MLB OPS, btw) from a disgraceful .554 in 2011?  And by "all accounts" I take it you've never watched him play a single game?

    You want to give him the keys to the car based on "less disgraceful offense than before" and "stuff I've heard about his defense"?  In what world does that make any sense at all?

    Classic case of totally overrating a Sox prospect.
    This isn't Bogaerts, it's a one dimnsional player, we're talking about,
    with major questions as to his hitting ability.

    For Iglesias I'd forget about the SLG part of OPS.  I don't care if he never hits a HR in his MLB career - I just don't want him to be an automatic out, and then play every inning in the field.  As such, a .318 OBP, up from .285, is nice progress, and has been improving.  I'd hold onto him, as he alone will not get you anything that can help this club.

    Iggy is not worth that much to any club until he shows some consistency at the plate.

    Definitely trade him, he's overhyped in my opinion. I'm comfortable with Ciriaco until Boegarts develops... he's the real shortstop of the future. Trade Iglesias before his stock declines.

    I agree....he's seems to be making slow but steady progress and he's not 23 until January.  I'm not giving up at all, I just think it's absurd to rush him into a job where he will probably miserably fail at the offensive part.

    No one would give up a good starter for Iggy.  He has a 306 slugging percentage and a 624 OPS at AAA.

    I am sure people would be lining up to trade a front line starter for that.

    Well, what ever they do with him, they certainly have found a gold nugget in Pedro, and he's got one of the infield jobs, hands down!

    The problem is that his stock is already low and really cant go too much lower... as to getting a front line or even a #3 starter? Never gonna happen... he cant even make it up to the big leagues so how does anyone give the sox anything for him?

    I think we should keep Iggy and Ciriaco at SS all next season just like Salty and Lav at catcher to see what we have.  I'm not convinced Bogaerts will be a SS but will definately break our lineup somewhere.
