In response to notin's comment:
Iglesias was traded because the Sox had a chance to sell high on him. If Iglesias was back next year hitting. 210, all the people decrying this trade would be screaming "We should have dealt him ehen he was worth Peavy!"
One year ago, Pedro Ciriaco was the untradable "shortstop of the future" with unparalled speed and defensive skills. 12 months and 3 teams later, he is struggling to even keep an MLB job...
Whether or not they "sold high" on Iggy remains to be seen.
But let's not get carried away with the Pedro Ciriaco thing. Depending on who you talk to, a year ago the SS of the future was in the minors and his name was either Iglasis or Bogarts.
Ciriaco was the UIF of the future.
Nope, I don't remember a lot of talk on this forum about Pedro. Good utilty guy and that was about it. If there was talk then I missed it because the kid was just a utilty player to me and if he went, no problem.
Then you missed a lot of posts from craze4sox, among others...
