    If Lugo is hurt, and it doesn't sound good. It's time for the FO to look into JJ Hardy. Good defense, decent bat, a little power. Jed better serves the Red Sox being the bench guy and spelling the entire infield. JJ Hardy is available at a reasonable price and is signed for a few years at a decent salary.

    With Escobar ready to take over at SS I'm sure a little pitching would persuade the Brewers to move Hardy. JJ could definitely add a bit more pop to our lineup.

    The problem with Hardy is the Brewers JUST extended him this off-season, a good indicator he is in the Brewers' future plans, Escoboar or not. And that's probably a smart move, given how week the rest of the infield is there.

    If the Sox do actually decide to replace Lugo, Bill Hall is far more available. As is Bobby Crosby, though he is hardly the solution to a plague of injuries. But both these guys could be had for the price of the long distance call. Less if Theo has Vonage.

    A smarter move might be Robert Andino. He is out of options and not in Florida's plans. Florida could very well be intrigued by George Kottaras, who is also out of options and clearly not in Boston's future plans. A Kottaras/Andino swap might actually work for both teams...

    Interesting proposal, although the Florida Marlins would prefer a righthand-hitting catcher to complement lefthand-hitting catcher John Baker.

    Though both are left-handed hitters, I don't see why Kottaras couldn't challenge Baker for the job outright. We aren't talking about Joe Mauer here...

    [Quote]What the hay? Why not check on J-Roll? The Phills are WAY over spent, and he had a bad year. They need young/cheap pitching, and Jed. I'll bet the trade cost would be competitive with other legit options.[/Quote]

    The Phillies have young, cheap pitching. Not everyone in their rotation is Jamie Moyer, and Hamels (25), Myers (28), Blanton (28), Kendrick (24), and Happ (24) are all good young options.

    It's pretty unlikely the defending MLB champions are going to unload to 2007 NL MVP for Jed Lowrie and a pitching prospect...
