Forum Post: This is Why Iggy Was Traded
Posted 08/27/2013 03:02:59 EDT
The trouble with projections are they often prove to be false. You can project players like Marrero or Cecchini as major leaguers, but until they get there and prove it it's a crap shoot. Bogaerts is more »

I like Peavy and understand why the move was made, but still think it's a bad trade. Iglesias was poised to be the Red Sox starter for the next decade-plus. Peavy will be here a few years and hopefull more »

For years the sox have been unable to find a quality shortstop. Over the past decade they've thrown money at free agents, tried stop-gap guys, and it has remained an issue. Just think about all the na more »

Posted 08/06/2013 03:55:54 EDT
They chose to make a move to get rid of the best fielding shortstop in the league. They were already weak at the plate given Iglesias' complete lack of power and Drew's hitting issues this year. Now, more »

Awful move. They gave away the best fielding shortstop in the league for a 32 year old middle of the rotation guy who has trouble staying healthy. Bogaerts is built to be a third baseman. Iglesias is more »

As others have noted above, it's not just the top players that define the system, but also some real system-wide depth, particularly in terms of pitching. Of course not all of these guys will turn out more »

barring the loss of either james or wade to injury, the celtics would do well to win one game in a series against the heat. with rondo the over/under would be 2 wins. with rondo and sullinger the same more »

Very true. While I generally like Ainge, I find some of his moves or lack thereof strange. His Perkins trade made sense in theory but not in the context of where the team was at the time and how urgen more »

no, it doesn't make your point. you have to have a point in the first place for that to be true. it's simply a reasoned look at a talented but flawed athlete. the celtics didn't build their team aroun more »

though it's being way over-stated by some, Rondo does have too many defensive lapses, particularly when it comes to penetration, but he is FAR from a poor defender. he is an excellent team defender a more »
