    One thing is certain - when the Red Sox call up Boagerts, probably about the 2020 season - we'll all know if he is any good.

    I think Drew takes Iggy out of the picture.  I do agree Bogaerts makes more sense in the outfield.  Too big for SS.

    For sure Iggy assumes a bench role for 2013 but I hope he ends up at SS in 2014 and beyond. Bogaerts will keep adding weight also as he matures so you are right about him being too big for SS.

    2013 bench role for 2013?? what?! he will be in pawtuckett at the start of the year so he can get ABs.. how can we expect his offensive game to get better from sitting on the bench?

    Re: Xander Bogaerts Vs. Hanley Ramirez Comparison by Ben Carsley of Fire Brand of the American League

    Last year at this time, Manny Machado was ranked 11th by BA and coming off a low A OPS of .859 and a high A OPS of .692 as a 19 year old. He is a big SS[6-3 185] with some questions whether he will stay at SS. He had little speed, but solid career walk rates.

    This year, Xander Bogaerts is likely to be ranked about 10th by BA and coming off a high A OPS of .883 and a AA OPS of .948 as a 19 year old. He is a big SS[6-3 175] with some questions whether he will stay at SS. He has little speed, but solid career walk rates.

    Seem pretty similar, other then Bogaerts having the advantage of playing 1 level higher and out performing Machado at the highest level either played. Bogearts looks like he is solidly ahead of schedule in comparison to Machado. The main point being that Machado came up to the big leagues on August 9th of last year and performed well. Bogaerts might be a lot closer to playing in the big leagues then people think.

    good comparison. but pending an injury i don't think we will see him in the majors in 2013 in any important role. Maybe if he asbolutely mashes and we trade Drew at the deadline

    Injuries happen and his athletic ability and bat will probably play at most positions. Other then 2b, CF, and catcher, I think he is a very possible replacement half way through the season. Not certain, but very possible.
