    The Amazing Jose Iglesias

    This is not meant to be a commentary on the trade, but I hate that we won't get to see the kind of plays like the one he made tonight against the ChiSox.  Check out Sportscenter.  It has to be the top play of the day.

    He made a great play against the Yankees the other day also.  He is as good a shortstop as I have seen.  Right there with Ozzie and Vizquel. Still hitting .324 , by the way.

    He makes fun to watch, creative, off balance plays. Not one of the 3 best defensive SS's in baseball though. A bit over rated.

    Thanks for the link, Zac.  I'm going to miss that guy.

    Very pretty play, and maybe there is no way for him to know this, but he went to the wrong base.  The runner on first froze.  Had he short-hopped it, he gets him easily at 2nd.

    Whoa, what a kill joy, Joe.  Watch it again.  No way can he get the runner going to second.  He was falling down and threw to the only base he could.  The runner beats any kind of throw he could have made to second IMO.

    Peavy might win some important games for the Red Sox and Drew might get some game winning hits, but neither one will ever make a play as pretty as that.  I mention this not to be contentious or to rate the outcome benefit of the trade, but just to appreciate the play for its own sake.  It's baseball art.

    It did... a tad.  I was disappointed.  I think I posted something about it saying that by being traded he learned that it really IS, "All about the money".

    I think we may live to regret trading Iggy but it will take some time to play out. Meantime it is fun watching his highlights, no doubt about it.

    WOW; this trade, while on the surface a good one,  may become a head scratcher. That and the Machado play vs the NYY may be the 2 best this yr.

    It was a great play for sure. Too bad it didnt win them the game.

    LOL, not all chicks.  ;-)

    I'll take a well-pitched, well-defended game over a slugfest any day of the week.

    Not that I don't appreciate a mammoth homerun every now and then.
