[QUOTE]Even with injuries - there has to be a young guy at AAA who would benefit greatly by playing - and I think he could hit .147 and pitch occassionally just like McDonald. Aviles is the utility guy. IF should be: 1B: Agone the loser 2B Pedroia SS Inglesias 3B Middlebrooks C- Lavarnaway Let them play the next 100 games or so. You aren't making the playoffs anyhow.

If the Sox aren't going anywhere, why rush Iggy before he's ready. If a guy is overmatched in Triple-A, what is so wrong about leaving him there with no pressure to learn to be a hitter?
That's what I don't get. All you posters rip Theo for "overhyping" the prospects and that's exactly what's being done with Iggy. The kid still is learning to be a hitter so why do we have push him before he's ready? What's to gain?
