    The Problem of Jed

    One nut poster boasted that Jed was proving Softlaw wrong because Softlaw said Jed would not last long before getting tired or feeling a twinge and a DL.

    Seems clear that Lowrie's a mental anxiety case. Red Sox need a veteran top notch defensive SS and Iggy post AAA playoffs needs to be allowed to play frequently regardless of how he hits by having him sacrifice frequently and taking a lot of pitches regardless of K ratio. Over time, he'll learn the art of fouling off 2 strike pitches and slapping the ball with a short chip swing. Majors is best place to learn how to be a good black hole sacrifice and slap hitter, assuming the defensive skills are top notch. Long minors stint does not do anything for defensive natural talents who are going to be career weak hitters.

    Left feet in OF, and sluggingg attempts for SS/UIF. Farm is so pitiful that they are still giving Wastefield gold watch contracts. Theo is a genius with a massive budget.

    Re: The Problem of Jed

    While I disagree with you on Ellsbury , I do agree about Lowrie.  Jed has shown himself to be a fragile ballplayer with limited skills even when healthy. He initially had some promise , being a switch hitter who could play several positions , but it has become apparent that he will not become a full time player on a good club.  I don't know if Iglesias is as good as he is thought to be , but why not find out?

    Sox won the WS in 2004 and 2007 without said SS.  Iglesias is 21 and not quite ready for the reality of the AL East and especially Boston's fans.  And Wakefield is relevant to what?  Oh, yes, this is a rant and exempt from the relevance rule.

    Re: The Problem of Jed

    I went to the game Friday night (ugh?).  Great seats along the 3rd base line.  Great sight lines, plus the 2 seats next to us were no shows.

    In any event, got to see Mr. Lowrie in action at SS.  He is not a good defensive short stop.  Slow footed, kind of clumsy.  Probably a better 3rd baseman as he has limited range.  No more than a utility player in my opinion. 

    I think it's hard to assess how good a player is defensively on TV.  I was amazed at how good Pokey Reese was when I saw him in person.  Quick, sure handed, and smooth.

    Re: The Problem of Jed

    Lowrie has been hitting the ball much better as of lately, showing that he may very well be a competent MLB hitter, his defense is horrible though.  

    Lowrie isn't nearly as awful over at 3rd as he is at SS,  I see him as a super utility infielder...although we may have a better man for the job now.  Lowrie may have value as a full time 3B on another team...If Scutaro exercises his 3 million dollar option and Iggy waiting in the wings...I say Lowrie is likely trade bait this offseason.

    The problem with Lowrie as trade bait is that he can't stay healthy. 

    I hope Scut doesn't exercise his option. Can you imagine if someone of Scut's ability was playing second when they promoted Pedroia?  There would have been a lot of pressure to limit Pedroia's at bats, possibly preventing him from working out his issues in his first season.  They need to let iggy play without looking over his shoulder.

    I hope the Sox go out and get a real good defensive short stop as a ultility guy for SS and second.

    It's next to impossible to stay healthy on a team in which the manager enables players to take time off for ailments.

    why would any team be interested in Jed??? he is simply too injury-prone to rely on...his future is as a sub....you would be nuts to work him into your plans as a GM or manager

    "It's next to impossible to stay healthy on a team in which the manager enables players to take time off for ailments."

    Dude, he had mono last year.  What does that have to do with the coach?

    He was on the DL this year for a shoulder strain.  Are you suggesting that he should have played through the shoulder strain?  Maybe push the injury to the point of needing surgery?  Nothing like shoulder surgery to prolong a player's career.

    Are you suggesting that Youk should have played through the back sprain or Buch should have played through the strees fracture?  Aren't stress fractures over use injuries and prevented by taking time off?  In other words, had they backed off of Buch when he first showed signs of back trouble, he'd be available now.

    The only problem with Jed is, he can't hit, can't field and can't stay in the lineup for any amount of time.
    Other than that, he's fine.

    Like Jake's situation last year will become detrimental to his relationship with the team...so says rib specialist DR. Quack Softone.

    Re: The Problem of Jed

    i would be all for calling up iglesias and giving him some starts at ss. he is by bar better defensively than the 2 secondbasemen we have playing ss right now. and what people dont seem to realize is that it really does not matter if iglesias hits well or not. he would hit in the 9 spot which generally speakin you dont expect much out of and its not like scutaro and lowrie are providing a lot with the bat.

    So sayeth the champion of racial equality.

    Yes, affirmative action and quotas hasn't yet made the races equal. So much more is needed to stop those racists SOB Tea Party people that Maxine Waters says to go to hell. Perhaps increasing the quotas will help the poor disadvantaged minorites who suffer because of the slave owning founding fathers. One of the Kennedy's should be able to finish off the work to bring us all together, the enlightened progressives and the inbread backwoods Bible thumping, gun toting bigots of the south. Boston is an example for Raleigh to follow on racial equality. No place champions racial equality quite like the Irish-American and Polish-Americans of the enlightened people of New England.
